      Brilliant idea, and we can certainly reduce how much we pollute the planet, but it’s actually very difficult for humans to live in the modern world without creating any pollution at all. Try doing this just for one day and you’ll see what I mean! That’s because everything we do has some impact on our environment – pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Even keeping a light bulb on at night creates some light pollution.
