What can we do?1) Using smokeless sources of energy like biogas, solar etc.2) Using devices for filtering smoke in chimneys of factories.Planting more trees (afforestation and reforestation)Recycling-various products instead of dumping them into rivers, e.g., biogas can be made from city waste.Avoiding polythene bags.

10 Reduce Reuse Recycle

ConclusionWe know that certain environmental conditions like air, water,& food are essential for mans survival. Apart from their availability their quality & quantity must be assured according to man's natural & acquired capacity for sustenance progress in industrialization has brought environmental hazards such as air water & noise pollution. These have caused many health problems & diseases. As it has been said- we do not inherit the environment from our forefathers,we borrow it from future generation. Stockholm conference of 1972 proclaims that: The protection & improvement of human environment is a major issue which affects the well being of people & economic development throughout the world & it is duty of all governments & people to common efforts for the preservation & improvement of environment for the benefit of all people & their prosperity.
