How Can We Reduce Acid Rain?

Many environmental problems can be best addressed with government laws. This is because the majority of emissions come from large industries and businesses, even though their products end up in our homes. If governments can impose regulations on these manufacturers and energy production companies to reduce their toxic emissions, it can significantly help our environment.

At the household level, families can also contribute by adopting a few simple practices such as:

  • Recycling more: By doing so, we reduce the need for new resources to produce new items.
  • Using water and electricity wisely: Turning off appliances when not in use and conserving water can significantly reduce pressure on industries to produce more.
  • Opting for mass transportation: Walking, biking, and using public transport can help reduce emissions and fossil fuels burned.
  • Learning more about environmental issues: By educating ourselves and writing to our local representatives, we can push for ways to make our community more environmentally safe.
