How to reduce pollution

Write a speech on ways of reducing pollution which is to be delivered during assembly on World Environment Day.
 
Good morning teachers and friends. In conjunction with World Environment Day, I would like to give a talk on the ways of reducing pollution.

Pollution was once thought to be the inevitable price of modernization and industrialization. Today, efforts to reduce environmental pollution are slowly gaining momentum.

First of all, existing laws and regulations aimed at reducing pollution should be strictly enforced. Toxic waste and fumes from industries are among the major causes of pollution. Instead of indiscriminate dumping of waste and unchecked emission of toxic fumes, industries should be equipped with proper waste-treatment systems. The move towards installing catalytic converters and using lead-free petrol is also commendable, as exhaust fumes from vehicles contribute greatly to air pollution. The Department of Environment and the Road Transport Department, respectively, should ensure that industries and vehicle owner comply with environmental regulations.

Another important step to curb pollution is to educate the public on the effects of pollution and how they can help protect the environment. Many people are still ignorant of the effects on the environment due to the use of materials such as aerosol sprays with cholorofluorocarbons, which destroy the ozone layer, or disposable plastic products, which are virtually indestructible. Many people also do not know that plastic, glass and paper can be recycled and thus prevent pollution by reducing waste. when the public is better informed, efforts to reduce pollution will be more effective.

Lastly, we should buy environmentally safe products and these should be reasonably priced to be attractive to the average consumer. For example, not many consumers are aware of the existence of biodegradable products and their benefits in cutting down environmental pollution. furthermore, many consumers who would be interested in buying recycled or environmentally friendly products are put off by the high prices charged for them. As such, there should be more encouragement for consumers to buy environmentally friendly products.

Reducing pollution requires efforts by all parties concerned -- the government, industries and consumers. Stricter control, more public awareness and reasonable pricing for 'green' products will all help in reducing pollution in the country. So ladies and gentlemen, let us do our part in reducing pollution.

Thank you
