Earth appears blue from space due to the water. Water allows earth to support life among other abundant resources. Pollution is a serious problem that we are forced to deal with on different fronts. From air pollution, soil and water pollution the earth is getting intoxicated. Water pollution is felt more by those living near water resources. Seas and oceans are seeing a lot of these and the sad thing is that most of the pollutants originate or come from land. However, on the bright side this means if people are committed to turning around this wrong, we can have cleaner water bodies.
Seafood has become very popular in recent years. With the ongoing pollution, that’s a cause of concern because no one wants to consume toxic food. Communities living on the coastlines have become very active in trying to keep the beaches clean. They have an impact in their small effort but there are ways to make that even bigger. Most of these communities will be registered organizations and groups whose sole purpose is to keep their beaches free of pollution. Even if you have not lived in a beachfront property before, there is a lot you can achieve in the good cause of curbing pollution through supporting the activities of these organizations.
They will have websites where you can keep yourself updated with the activities they have going on and how they go about implementing. You would be surprised that some people out there are still not in the know about the pollution that is far from their own environments. You can help with creating awareness on what people can do in their own capacities because in the fight against pollution, all the efforts are needed. With knowledge comes power and when people in the know they will definitely act to correct the situation. Putting in mind that most agents that pollute the water come from the activities done on land, this happens to be the area to direct awareness.
As much as the communities living next to water bodies do their part in cleaning, pollution will continue to be a problem if all the work is left to them. There are many options for many of the chemicals used on land and alongside water bodies that end up in the water. Advocating for the use of environmentally friendly products goes a long way in the effort of setting things right. Apart from making the facts known these community-based organizations will have platforms through which you can make donations that go to supporting their activities. This support will help them stay vocal in what they are doing. If progress is to be made in the fight against pollution of water bodies, all hands need to be on deck because we all depend on water bodies in one way or another. Whether you will be directly taking action in the water or doing it virtually the goal is to have a cleaner and healthier planet for all life. Human error can only get worse when it is ignored, acting in time is ideal.
