Speech About Pollution

Why we should help stop Pollution:

Hello everyone, today I have made a speech about pollution and why we should stop it. 

There are 3 types of pollution that are happening in the world, such as, air pollution, water pollution and land pollution. 


Air pollution is caused by several things: burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gasoline. Your own vehicle can cause air pollution. Wildfires and burning of garbage waste can also cause air pollution. Driving your car less or turning off the engine can help minimise air pollution. Not burning your garbage waste and not having campfires in the city can also help minimise air pollution.


Air pollution is everywhere. Indoors, outdoors, in the countryside & in the city. It is all around us. It affects everyone. Without air there can be no life but breathing polluted air opens us to a life of diseases and early death. Polluted air is a global health emergency, can cause us to get sick etc.

Air pollution in the United Kingdom can cause up to 36,000 deaths a year since the air is filled with a lot of chemicals. 


A lot of water pollution comes from human activity. Some human causes and fertilisers from farms, waste water and chemicals from factories and trash from people littering. Oil spills have been a major famous problem for water pollution.

Ways to help prevent water pollution is doing a beach clean up, removing plastics from rivers near you, getting rid of toxic chemicals the proper way, not pouring fat and grease down the drain etc

Reason why it is good to prevent water pollution, as it can make people sick especially young children. Some of the bacteria in the water can make people sick, and go hospital and in worst cases, die. It is important to prevent water pollution and assure water is safe for ourselves and the future generation. It can also be harmful to the sea animals and sea creatures

These are all caused by people dumping their rubbish in the ocean or leaving their rubbish on the ground instead of the bin. Sea animals are slowly dying in the ocean because sometimes animals think rubbish is food so they slowly devour it and they choke. 

Land pollution is things such as illegal dumping and littering, overcrowded landfills, nuclear wastes and so on.

Ways to help prevent land pollution are reducing the amount of waste. Recycle and reusing resources whenever possible to reduce waste and can also help you save money.

It is important to prevent land pollution as Harmful chemicals that can get into the soil can be very dangerous for animals and humans.

So, this is why I think people should stop polluting.


Hello there! Today I have posted my speech about pollution and how there are different types. These 3 main types are water pollution,air pollution and land pollution. It is really devastating how people don’t care about all the rubbish and the gas that comes out of factories. I really think people should change in society because this is just wrong.

But, we thank all the people that are really making a difference in our community by picking up all the rubbish. You could also make a difference if you pick up rubbish and throw it in the nearest bin! 🙂
