Effects on the Environment
Garbage pollution has a big effect on the environment. The garbage can harbor rats and fleas that carry harmful diseases. These vermin can then cause many cases of a disease. After that, when even more garbage piles up, there will be more cases and more deaths. Soon there would be an epidemic. Nobody would be able to survive in the harsh conditions, and, like in many movies such as Wall-E, Earth would not be able sustain life and humanity would be wiped out. This can happen just because you decided to throw away your soda can instead of recycling. So, it is very important that we keep the environment safe.
