Indeed pollution occurs due to human behavior that does not pay attention to the preservation of nature in which he lives.
Logging in forests, disposal of garbage and waste into rivers, disposal of factory smoke into the air, conversion of green land into residential land are some examples of the causes of pollution.
The environmental pollution will certainly disrupt the ecosystems in it and will cause natural disasters, such as floods, landslides, or even drought. Therefore, it is necessary to hold education on environmental preservation by the government.
Efforts and efforts to harmonize the environment to restore natural functions as they should are not only the responsibility of the government but also our responsibility. Actions and concrete actions that can be taken are as follows:

Another benefit is that it can reduce pollution, soil damage due to littering, and air pollution from combustion. The recycling process includes sorting, collecting, processing, distributing and manufacturing products.
The benefit that will be obtained by holding an environmental preservation program is that the community will be more concerned about the environment.
Increase public awareness so as not to litter, but to reuse it by recycling it into new goods or compost fertilizer. Also, it provides information about the importance of protecting the environment from disasters. Awareness of the preservation of nature must start from oneself.
