The Problem

In the city of Chicago, we already see the effect that air pollution has on our environment. We see the extremes of both weathers, days of air quality alert, and relatively high pollution levels, which all pose a danger to many people’s’ health. Metropolitan pollution affects the old and the young, active people outdoors, and our environment. A part of the city’s pollution results from industrial and vehicle emissions. But sadly, many people don’t really consider the problem about pollution. Its likely many don’t have a clue about what they shouldn’t be throwing out in the garbage disposal, such as items that can pose a threat to the environment that release harsh chemicals or that can pollute the soil, water, etc.
