You cannot see it
or Hold it
or Eat it
But you have to have it. You guessed it right!! It is the air that we breathe and it’s everywhere.
So it is really sad that something that is so important for us is getting dirty. All the smoke from the chimneys, airplanes and automobiles is polluting or dirtying the air. With more and more factories, planes and cars it is becoming more and more difficult to keep the air clean.
Breathing in dirty air is not good for our health. We need to breathe in fresh and clean air to keep strong and healthy.
Scientists are trying to find ways to clean up the air, but all of us have to do our bit.
Here are a few things that kids can do to keep the air clean:
- Conserve electricity by turning off the lights, the TV and the computerwhen you’re not using them.
- Ride the bus, carpool or rideshare.
- Recycle and buy recycled products — it takes less energy to make products out of recycled materials.
- Plant more trees. Trees have their own special trick.They breathe in the dirty air but breathe out clean air.
What gas do we need to breathe? Oxygen.
