✚ Even today air pollution poses the largest pollution-related threat to human lives in the UK. While manufacturing used to be a major contributor, the transport industry is just as much to be blamed.
The major pollutants of concern in the UK are particulate matter (PM), oxides of nitrogen, and ground-level ozone.
✚ No source is left untapped, or in this case, unpolluted. On average, a household uses about 140 litres of water every day.
The contamination of our water sources not only poses threat to the sanitation and health of the people but also to the wildlife and food systems that depend on it.
✚ A 2021 report found that the UK has lost more biodiversity than any G7 country, and is in the worst global 10%.
A study on nearly 700 species of land animals, fish, birds, marine animals and moths uncovered that 41% have witnessed a population decline since 1970, 33% saw a minor change while only 26% have increased.
Through choices and decisions made by the government, businesses and individuals greener and healthier environment can be made more accessible which in turn can help reduce economic and healthcare costs per annum.
