  • Conserving resources also helps in reducing pollution. When we learning about conservation of resources in schools and colleges, it is necessary that these learnings are supposed to be put to use and in practical life.

  • Automobiles should be well maintained so that they do not consume more fuel and electricity.
  • The engines of your cars should be turned off near the traffic signals.
  • The pollution control board that monitors the industries should impose strict rules and penalize the industries that do not follow the norms.
  • Innovations in manufacturing low-polluting outboard marine engines and personal watercraft, cars and other engines may help in reducing pollution of the environment.
  • Advocate for emission reductions from power plants and more stringent national vehicle emission standards.
  • The containers of household cleaners, workshop chemicals and solvents, and garden chemicals should be properly sealed to prevent volatile organic compounds from evaporating into the air.
  • Use water-based or solvent free paints whenever possible and buy products that say “low VOC”.
