We treat the environment like a joke.

I have seen so many rivers/lakes in the past full of rubbish and dangerous objects such as beer bottles, cans, plastic bags and plastic. But you can help!

Think about it:
National Tree Day
Cleanup Australia Day
Or just simply helping the environment by easily picking up rubbish you see and putting it securely into the rubbish bin! It's not hard at all.

Rivers And Lakes:
Have you ever noticed the scummy dirty look on rivers? Many causes of pollution including sewage and fertilizers containing nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates.In excess levels, nutrients over stimulate the growth of aquatic plants and algae.

Excessive growth of these types of organisms consequently clogs our waterways, use up dissolved oxygen as they decompose, and block light to deeper waters.

The pollution of rivers and streams with chemical contaminants has become one of the most crutial environmental problems within the 20th century. Waterborne chemical pollution entering rivers and streams cause tramendous amounts of destruction.

Pathogens are another type of pollution that prove very harmful. They can cause many illnesses that range from typhoid and dysentery to minor respiratory and skin diseases

Three last forms of water pollution exist in the forms of petroleum, radioactive substances, and heat. Petroleum often pollutes waterbodies in the form of oil, resulting from oil spills.

SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC BAGS!!!They are very dangerous to birds and other native wildlife.Birds use littered plastic bags for their nests and end up getting caught/tangled in it and experience a horrible suffocation!

Use the green environmentally friendly bags!!!Put an End to Plastic Bags - it's in your hands. It's simple and inexpensive to make the change.

Don't Pollute the Earth. It's our home, we have to look after it! We're only making it more difficult to

Stop plastic bags from entering and blocking our drains. Stop marine life and wildlife from getting suffocated/tangled/injured and trapped in our plastic bags.
