Summary – Water Pollution
In this article, I am not going to tell you to give any feedback or anything, I will just say to follow these methods so that we can prevent the water pollution. Millions of people are dying every year for not having pure water. So it’s our duty to keep water fresh and drinkable.
1. Do Not Dispose of Oils in the Sink
While there is nothing wrong with consuming oils in your food or applying them on your body, it is a bad idea to dispose of oils in the sink. It is better to dispose of oils in the garbage, or collect all your excess oil in one bottle and then throw that away.
2. Do not Throw Away Medicines
Never throw away medicines in the water supply either. Even if you have whole pills that you do not need, it is a bad idea to flush them down the toilet or crush them in your kitchen sink disposal.
3. Garbage Disposal
Even though most homes have a garbage disposal system in the sink, it is better to use it as rarely as possible. This system can break down solid objects, but those items are harmful to the water supply. It is better to throw them in the trash can when possible.
4. Dishwashing or Laundry
Only use your dishwasher or washing machine when it is close to being full. Using these machines to clean one or two dishes, or a few pairs of clothes is an incredible waste of water.

5. Avoid Pesticides
If you need to overhaul your garden, attempt to do so without using any herbicides or pesticides. These are very harmful to the environment. Talk to landscaping companies in your area about environmentally friendly replacements for these products.
6. Use Water Sparingly
Turn off the tap while you are brushing your teeth. Bathing actually uses a lot more water than showering. But do not take 20-minute showers when 10 minutes is all you need. Every bit of water you conserve is a way to help the environment.
7. Stop Chemical Pollution
If you notice someone throwing chemicals into the water, or hear about such an incident, talk to your local water authorities about the matter. Tell them what you saw or know and implore them to take action. If you stay quiet, you are letting the problem get worse.
8. Clean Up Litter
If you see someone littering near water, ask them to keep their items and throw them somewhere else. If you see litter on the floor, pick it up and put it in a bag and throw it away when you get home. It is easy to think that someone else will do the job, but we can all help each other and our environment by being proactive.
