Industry pollution is one of the contributors of global warming. Almost all factories pollute the earth because of waste industrial affluents, burning of fossil fuels and ozone dapletion. It also pollutes the human body and causes asthma, other lung diseases, or worst…cancer. One dangerous type of contaminant that has been used are the polychlorinated biphenyl compounds, which are components in adhesives, plastic wraps and various lubricants that people use everyday. The industry pollution cannot be stopped. However, it can be regulated before it gets even worse.
The govenment should impose sustainable practices and eco-friendly operations in all factories. Example is by implementing the mandatory use of renewable resources. Also, construction of affluent treatment plants should be made mandatory for all factories. By adopting these sustainable practices, the factories will operate on the cutting edge of industry while strengthening their competitive advantage. And because more people are going green now it can enhance the factories’ image and also boost their profits.
As consumers, people can contribute to the regulation of industry pollution as well. How? Factories produce products that the people (the consumers) purchase. If people consume less, the factories will produce less then there will be less pollution. The good thing is, there are factories and industrial supply companies that are producing and selling eco-friendly products that people should patronize.
Pollution cannot be regulated overnight but it can in the future.
