Farmers contribution to pollution:

Human beings are the reason why we have water pollution. Farmers use fertilisers and different chemicals like

  • Phosphorous
  • Potassium
  • Sulphur powder

What are the effects of water pollution?

Each year, plastic waste in water and coastal areas kills up to:

  • 100,000 marine mammals,
  • 1 million sea birds,
  • countless fish.

This doesn't only effect the animals, it also effects us. If we eat the contaminated animals imagine what we could contract from them. Pollution is a international problem that the world needs to tend to. We are only leaving the mess for the next generation to clean up.


For our community we suggest that they :

  • Be careful about what you tip down your sink or toilet. Don't tip paints, oils or other forms of litter down the drain.
  • Use environmentally household products, such as washing powder, household cleaning agents and toiletries.
  • Take great care not to overuse pesticides and fertilisers.
  • Don't throw litter into rivers, lakes or oceans. Help clean up any litter you see on beaches or in rivers and lakes.

Just baby steps. It’s up to us, So let’s make a change before it’s to late.
