What causes littering in the community

Humans, animals and plants all need unpolluted water to survive. Litter can also clog storm-
water drains and cause flooding. Food scraps and other organic items that are disposed of
improperly can increase algal blooms in water, which reduces the amount of available oxygen
for other aquatic life, such as fish.

Causes of Littering
1. Presence of litter in an area
Research has proven a correlation between the presence of litter in a given area and the
intentional throwing of litter at that particular spot. The research points out that when
someone sees litter already accumulated somewhere, it gives the impression it’s the right
place to discard items and in most cases, it’s either accidental or intentional.

2. Construction projects
Some percentage of litter also comes from construction projects. The worker’s lunchtime
waste together with uncontrolled generation of building waste is the culprit of litter
produced from construction projects. Pieces of wood, metals, plastics, concrete debris,
cardboard, and paper are some of the waste materials generated.

3. Laziness and carelessness

Laziness and carelessness has bred a culture of habitual littering. Typically, people have
become too lazy and unwilling to throw away trash appropriately. It is common to see
people discard trash out of their kitchen windows or balconies probably because they are
too lazy to put it in the rightful places. Carelessness has also made people just throw
rubbish anywhere without even thinking about it.
2. where do people throw rubbish?

Air pollution:

Air pollution is the introduction of particulates, biological molecules, or other harmful

materials into Earth's atmosphere, causing diseases, damage to other living organisms
such as animals and food crops, or the natural or built environment.

As some waste decomposes, it releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere which
harms our environment.

Water Pollution

Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers
and groundwater). This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are
directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to
remove harmful compounds.

4. Is it the same people who are doing this littering

Being ambitious means that you have an innate drive to succeed, hardworking and goal-
oriented, and willing to do what it takes to achieve your dreams. If you lack ambition, you can
turn things around by taking responsibility for your fate, clarifying your goals, making the
necessary changes and being honest about your feelings. With effort, you'll develop the drive
that leads to career success.
