The environmental problems & increase in waste are caused by;…<br /><ul><li>Too much waste not thrown properly, …..
Garbage's and waste thrown / littered everywhere...</li></ul>Increase in waste affect environment problems because:<br /><ul><li>The energy production from factories for waste burning, release carbon dioxide(C02)~ (Carbon dioxide prevents heat from escaping earth, making holes in the ozone layer, ozone layer helps to protect us from harmful uv rays…thus carbon dioxide, chlorine and cfc’s are dangerous…
Improper and continuous disposal of non-recyclable substrates into nearby water bodies lead to the obstruction and clogging of water flow thereby causing a risk of destruction of living habitats for aquatic flora and fauna.</li></li></ul><li>It ‘s harmful effects are::<br /><ul><li>IMPACTS ON PEOPLE
Pesticides also emit chemicals that affect the earthworm, which help fertilise the soil., and when birds eat the earthworm, the pesticides stored in the body is passed on.</li></li></ul><li>measure s taken in japan<br />MEASURES TAKEN IN JAPAN<br />NATIONAL EFFORT<br />Enforcing laws and regulations ( fine those who litter)<br />Educate the public by having a speed on how important it is to recycle<br />Developing proper waste disposal methods (for example: burn waste, incineration, at high temp.)<br /> or, dig big holes to dump solid waste.<br />4.
