  1. 1. • Garbage & pollution are taking over our city! Both are working together to make our city a BAD place. If you find some garbage, think about what’s happening. Garbage will always cause pollution. Even when we dispose of garbage correctly, it goes into a landfill. The problem with landfills is it can poison air, land and water.problem with landfills is it can poison air, land and water. But we can do something about this. More than half of the cities in this country are running out of places to put their garbage. Did you know 75% of garbage can be recycled but only 15% is? We have limited resources like trees and minerals that would be easy to eliminate if we are not careful.
  2. 2. Did you know each person in Pakistan throws out about four pounds of garbage every day? 14 billion pounds of trash is dumped into the ocean every year. Alldumped into the ocean every year. All people in Pakistan make enough garbage each day to fill 100,000 garbage trucks. These unbelievable facts are true.
  3. 3. There are 3 ways we can help our earth. 1.Reduce1.Reduce 2.Reuse 3.Recycle
  4. 4. Reduce and Reuse • There are lots of ways you can help reduce trash. A way to get rid of old clothes is to give away things. Many companies take hand- me-downs to help people who are less fortunate. You can remake dresses from these clothes! If you recycle worn tires, shoes, purses, new tires, and chemicals could be sorted and reused. Another way to help is not to use too many little juice boxes because one big juicehelp is not to use too many little juice boxes because one big juice box uses less cardboard than 24 little juice boxes. Using Earth friendly products also helps. Look for these phrases on things you buy. • Green Seal Certified products do not hurt the planet • Recycle • Product made from recycled material • Product is Acid Free
  5. 5. • Composting: • Another way to get a benefit from your trash is to create a compost station. Compost soil is great for plants, gardens and yards. We can use: • Kitchen waste examples eggshells, tea bags, coffee grounds,• Kitchen waste examples eggshells, tea bags, coffee grounds, vegetable peelings (any uncooked vegetable waste) • A container with a lid • Grass cuttings • A large container with a rain proof lid • A spade • Soil with worms and creatures like ants, woodlice or millipedes • Chemical fertilizer or starter compost with nitrogen
  6. 6. • Instructions: • Fill the bottom of your container with a layer about 4 to 6 inches of waste. Don’t add plants to compost because some seeds may not decompose) • Cover the waste with about 1" of soil. • Keep on building up the layers with a thin layer of soil between each layer of kitchen waste. Don’t pack layers too tightly air should circulate through the compost. The top layer should be a layer of soil. • Add some fertilizer or starter compost to your compost. You could add grass, which is rich in nitrogen, but fertilizer will get your compost working faster. • Bacteria, fungi, earthworms and other creatures will all get to work on your compost. You will not be able to see your bacteria but it will be there. • The inside of your compost will get hot which will be caused by the bacteria.• The inside of your compost will get hot which will be caused by the bacteria. The compost should reach its top temperature in about 2 or 3 weeks. • In about 3 months your compost will be ready to be used in your garden. Adding compost to flower beds and vegetable patches will help the plants grow quickly • Earth Machine - Recycling bin for kitchen waste and other types of waste. • Open Recycling Bin for Yard Waste.
  7. 7. Recycling • What does recycling mean? It means to use something again or to use a product to make another. Recycling helps by already being the product. You can recycle paper, glass, plastic, cans, metal, building material, plant matter andcans, metal, building material, plant matter and cardboard. Recycling paper can help us by not cutting down too many trees. Trees make the air we breathe clean. Did you know every ton of paper that is recycled saves 17 trees? So if we recycle our paper we will be saving our trees and making our air better.
  8. 8. • Recycling Facts • These are some facts about how recycling can help • 1. Pollution affects the Ozone layer, which protects us from the suns harmful rays. There are already 2 holes in the Ozone layer. This effects the Earth’s temperature and if it gets to heat the glaciers, they can melt, sea level can rise, land can be flooded and the weather patterns can be effected. • 2. Each hour people in our country use 2.5 million plastic material. Recycling one ton of plastic saves the equivalent of 1000 - 2000Recycling one ton of plastic saves the equivalent of 1000 - 2000 gallons of gasoline. • 3. 65 billion aluminum soda cans are used each year. It takes 90% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to make a new one. • 4. The energy saved by recycling a glass bottle instead of making a new one would lit a light bulb for 4 hours. • 5. The earth has limited natural resources, if we recycle our trash then it makes our resources last longer.
  9. 9. • Educate public through • Posters • Pamphlets • Banners • Meetings and discussion • presentation • Lead by example
  10. 10. • Realize Higher Authorities e.g. • DCO • Municipal committee• Municipal committee • MNA/MPA
  11. 11. Implications: • Planting trees • Put large dust bin in each area• Put large dust bin in each area • Monitoring work progress • Continuous observation
