what can we do to reduce air pollution, water pollution, soil pollution and noise pollution

The best way to prevent land pollution is to recycle. Here are a few other ways you can reduce land pollution: 
1.Reuse any items that you can 
2.Buy biodegradable products 
3.Don’t use pesticides 
4.Don’t dump motor oil on the ground
 

The number one way to prevent air pollution is to walk or bike more and drive less. This will prevent fossil fuels from polluting the air. Here are some other ways to prevent air pollution: 
1.Don’t smoke 
2.Keep your car maintenance up-to-date 
3.Don’t buy products that come in aerosol spray cans 
4.Always replace your car’s air filter 
5.Don’t use harsh chemical cleaners that can emit fumes 
6.Inspect your gas appliances and heaters regularly 


The best way to prevent water pollution is to not throw trash and other harmful chemicals into our water supplies. Here are a few more ways you can prevent water pollution: 
1.Wash your car far away from any storm water drains 
2.Don’t throw trash, chemicals or solvents into sewer drains 
3.Inspect your septic system every 3-5 years 
4.Avoid using pesticides and fertilisers that can run off into water systems 


 A few steps to take would be: 
1. Plant trees wherever possible, as the roots of the trees bind the soil and prevent it from washing away during rains. 
2. Make sure the water run-off from your roof does fall straight onto soil, as this is sure to cause erosion. Try to place a stone tile or empty pot on the area where then water falls, so that its force is dispersed. 
3. Sloping lands tend to suffer more soil erosion when water washes down them, try to create steps if the area around your house is sloping. You could also consider embedding a layer (or two) of bricks at the border of your lawn. This will slow the flowing water and cause it leave behind most of the soil.
