Today is World Environmental Day 2019. This years theme is #BeatAirPollution. Air pollution may seem complex, but we can all do our part to reduce some of it. Understanding the different types of pollution, and how it affects our health and environment will help us take steps towards improving the air around us.
Waste is one of the top 5 causes of air pollution. Globally, an estimated 40 percent of waste is openly burned. Improving the collection, separation, and disposal of solid waste reduces the amount of waste that is burned or landfilled.
