It has been taken the form most powerful demon which is destroying the natural environment very fast. We have provided below various speech on pollution in order to help students to actively take part in the speech recitation activity in the school at any event celebration. All the pollution speech provided below are written using very easy words and small sentences for the students. So, you can select any speech on pollution according to your need and requirement:
Speech on Pollution
Pollution Speech 1
Good morning to all. I … studying in class … standard would like to speech on pollution at this occasion. My dear friends, pollution has been one of the biggest challenges affecting the environment and human lives. It is an environmental issue faced by people all across the world today. Variety of hazardous and toxic substances from different sources are getting intermingled into the environment and causing various types of pollution such as water, air, soil or land, noise, and thermal pollution. Smokes and toxic dust from the industries and factories get mixed to the air and causes air pollution. Such polluted air is very bad for the lungs when we breathed air in. Sewage and other wastes from the industries and factories have their ways directly to the large water bodies (river, lakes, seas, etc) and they get mixed properly to the drinking water causes water pollution. Such polluted water (containing germs, bacteria, toxic substances, viruses, etc) is very bad to the health of human beings, animals and plants (whoever drinks this water).
Now-a-days, environment is not peaceful because of the increasing noise level through the transport, sound systems, electronic devices, etc. Such voices are causing noise pollution and very bad to the natural stamina of our ears. Excess and unbearable noise of vehicles, loud speakers, etc can cause ear problems and even permanent deafness especially in older people and kids.
Man-made chemicals from the industries and factories such as hydrocarbons, solvents, heavy metals, etc get mixed into the soil when people use herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, etc or through the spill or underground leakage of the chemicals. Such contaminants in the form of solid, liquid or gas are causing soil or land pollution which is contaminating the whole earth. Such contaminants are also causing water and air pollution as they get mixed to the underneath water supplies and some chemicals produce harmful vapors respectively.
Ever increasing the use of plastic by the people is causing huge level environmental pollution and adversely affecting the wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans. Thermal pollution is increasing because of the huge level usage of water as a coolant by the power plants and industrial manufacturers. It is causing the change in temperature of water in the large water bodies. It is very harmful to the aquatic animals and plants as raised temperature of water decreases the oxygen level of water.
My dear friends, we have been surrounded by the thick cover of the pollution from all around means upside, downside, and both sides. We are living in pollution but the most surprising thing is that some people even do not aware of it. Big and developed countries are highly responsible to this increased level of pollution all around the world. This is the very challenging issue of this planet which needs to be solved on urgent basis. It cannot be solved by the effort one or two countries, however; it can only be solved if all the countries do hard and strict effort from various aspects regarding this issue.
Various countries have adopted some effective laws on pollution reduction however that are not enough to defeat this powerful demon. This needs conjoint governmental actions of all the countries to completely eliminate it. High level awareness should be spread to the common people to get their needed effort. Each and every person of the country should be aware and watchful of this problem, its causes, and harmful effects to the living beings. Use of harmful and toxic chemicals by the people, industries and factories should be banned very strictly by the government. Common people should be made aware by the educational institutions and government agencies through camps or other means to use environment friendly things and habits to save the environment and keep it healthy.
Thank You All.
Pollution Speech 2
Good morning to the Sir, Madam, and my dear colleagues. My name is … I study in class … I would like to speech today on the topic of pollution in India. As we have gathered here to celebrate this event, I have selected this special topic to open in front of you in the favor of humanity. My dear friends, as we all are well aware of the word pollution. I want to tell you that pollution is a slow and sweet poison which is disturbing us and our living very badly in all the aspects such as physically, mentally, socially, and intellectually. It is not so easy to stop it at once however, not so tough to prevent it gradually.
The main causes of the pollution are wastes from the chemical industries and factories pouring their wastes directly into the large water bodies. Such contaminants gets introduced into the natural environment and causing adverse change. Pollution can be man-made or natural however pollution from the natural sources is less harming than the man-made. Pollutants or components of the pollution get intermingled into the natural resources such as water, air, soil, etc. Pollution was started from the prehistoric times however currently it has been boom because of the deforestation, urbanization, technological advancement, and advanced life style.
People should understand the importance of environment they live in and respect the one given by God to live a simple life on the earth (the only known planet having life). Various types of pollution such as water pollution, soil or land pollution, air pollution, and sound or noise pollution, all are very harmful to the health of human beings and animals. People have been used to of technological advancement in their lives and forgot about all the existing problems because of that. Use of various fertilizers and other chemicals in the agriculture for many years in order to get better and healthy crops has created serious problem to the humanity.
Increasing number of vehicles in the cities is another main cause of air pollution. Diesel vehicles are more dangerous than the petrol vehicles as they emit more carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, both are very harmful to the health and atmosphere. My dear friends, it is very necessary for the common public to be aware of the bad effects of pollution and run in the direction against pollution to reduce its effects. We should plant more green plants in the surrounding areas and sides of the roads in order to maintain the natural equilibrium in the environment.
Pollution is affecting our lives so we have to take individual steps and do every possible things what we can do. We should not depend only on our government actions for some positive changes. Common people like us are the main factor to stop the spread of pollution.
Thank You All.
Pollution Speech 3
Good morning to the respected sir, madam and my friends. At this event, I would like to speech on pollution, the most serious issue of the modern time. The most powerful demon in the form of environmental pollution has disordered the ecological balance of the atmosphere. It is a big global issue however varies in its nature and extent with regional variations. It is the topic of anxiety and debate to solve this issue. It is not the time to accuse one another however it is the time to fight this demon together with some effective weapons. Rich, powerful and developed countries are highly responsible for such a huge spread of pollution and global warming however all countries are bearing this problem.
We have been the victim of this environmental pollution however we cannot deny that this problem is created by us. It is we who have given rise to this problem due to increased irregular consumption level of natural resources and living patterns of the modern time. Pollution is the result of fast urbanization, deforestation, industrialization, technologies and unmanageable wastes from industries and factories. It is getting boom because of the high consumption level of fertilizers in agriculture, emissions from chimneys, smoke from motor vehicles, etc.
Increased number of vehicles has increased the consumption level of fuels which is causing the air pollution to a great extent. Over population is another big issue of this ever increasing pollution. It has created the need of more houses, cutting of plants to make living places, and other modern needs of the people is leading to the pollution. No one is thinking about this issue but everyone is busy in money making and collecting things of physical comfort. Because of overpopulation the consumption of fresh water, consumption of wood, etc has increased. Increasing human needs of physical comfort (such as AC, TV, electricity, electronic devices, fertilizers, freeze, washing machine, etc) is directly related to the spread of pollution.
Now, we lack the fresh air to breathe, fresh water to drink, fresh land to get healthy crops, and peaceful environment to sleep. We are bearing all that because of our negligence and carelessness. We have to work hard continuously to get natural fresh environment to get real physical and mental comfort. We have to get control over this demon and save life here by planting more trees, well managing wastes from industries and factories, reducing need of heavy vehicles, and other effective steps.
Pollution Speech 4
Good morning to all. At this event celebration, I am going to recite a speech on pollution. My dear friends, pollution is not an unknown word for us. We are well aware of it, its causes and bad effects on the environment and our lives. A natural environmental contains everything required for the survival, growth, and development of the living beings on earth. However, what happened if this environment gets polluted by various means. Everything will get disturb and interfere with the survival of life here.
Pollution has happened because of the mixing of dangerous unnatural ingredients into the natural resources which causes imbalance in the ecosystem and thus various health hazards to the human beings and animals. Pollution is damaging the ecosystem and destroying the balance. This is all because of the industrialization, urbanization, deforestation, technological advancement, over population, etc. All these are the big reason of increasing level of toxic gases (causing air pollution), solids/liquids wastes (causing water, food and soil pollution) and sound (causing noise pollution). All are the reason of imbalance in the natural ecosystem in some direct or indirect ways.
It has been the matter of great concern and consideration and need to solve. Because of the pollution, babies are born with variety of birth defects and life expectancy of people has been low because of the lethal diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart problem, etc. I want to share you some facts about pollution: According to the WHO, around 6.7% percent of all deaths and 7 million premature deaths worldwide are due to the air pollution. Mississippi River carries around 1.5 million metric tons of nitrogen pollution. Pollution caused by China may change United States weather patterns. Approximately, 56% trash of United States has covered landfills (half of that is only paper).
The most damaging pollutant causing global environmental pollution is fossil fuel. It has created various evil effects especially through air, water and soil. Protecting our environment and improving its natural value is the fundamental duty of all of us. We should try our best to tackle this problem and give a nice healthy future to our next generation.

Essay on Pollution
Slogans on Pollution
Pollution contributes to the harmful environment that results in adverse effect on living beings. It is one of the major concern areas for the whole world. It is a global issue involving the United Nations, governments, voluntary institutions and the media.
Students need to be made fully aware of the adverse effects of rising pollution. Also, being the future generation, they can play a vital role in controlling pollution if they are familiar with this threat to the survival of mankind.
Here we are providing you some useful articles on pollution under various categories according to varying words limits. You can choose any of them according to your need:
Article on Pollution 1 (300 words)
Anything added into the environment that results in producing harmful or poisonous effect on living things is called pollution. Pollution is the process that makes nature’s resources such as land, water, air or other parts of the environment unsafe or unsuitable to use. Pollution can be of many types: soil, air, water, thermal, radioactive, noise, and light. The toxins released are inhaled by each one of us while we breathe.
Pollution and its Causes
Inhaling poisonous air is as hazardous as smoking. It is not only the humans who are affected from this polluted environment but also the animals. Air is filled with highly toxic gases. These dangerous gases in environment are released by the power industries that burn fossil fuels, industries that dispose wastes in the water, farmers using pesticides, high usage of artificial lights and loud sounds, etc. Each of these leads to generation of the life threatening cause – pollution.
Any use of natural resources at a rate higher than the nature’s capacity to restore itself can result in pollution of air, water, and land. Other than human activities, there are a few periodic natural cycles that also result in release of dangerous stuff. Natural activities other than the human activities like volcanic eruption, dust wildfires, etc also result in creation of pollution.
Globalizationis another major cause of pollution. Globalization has become an effective facilitator of environmental degradation.
Every individual owns certain responsibility of maintaining few points such as not throwing garbage all around, growing trees, using public transport instead of their own, etc. We must shun excessive consumption and avoid careless and deliberate disposal of post-consumption waste resources which could otherwise be recycled and would led to pollution control.
Pollution cannot be reduced or controlled if a sense of responsibility towards our Mother Earth is not felt by all concerned.
Article on Pollution 2 (500 words)
Pollution is a process of making the environment dirty, unhealthy and unsuitable for humans and animals to live. It is caused due to the release of both tangible and intangible contaminants. These can be released naturally or by humans themselves accidentally or deliberately.
More than 200 million people are affected due to toxic pollutants. Due to pollution, there are few countries that have faced defected child birth and increase in mortality rate. Humans are regularly exposed to pollution when they inhale toxic air inside them.
Pollution can be controlled, if not eliminated. Efforts such as promoting green environment, proper disposal of waste, etc are simple steps that lead to great emphasis on maintaining the order of environment.
- Plant trees/cultivate garden to curb polluted air and release more oxygen.
- Switch off electricity-based equipments when not in use: lights, fans, machines, etc.
- Make high use of natural energy than electric energy: dry the clothes naturally.
- Use recyclable products, wherever possible.
- Avoid plastic bags and use paper bags.
- Avoid wastage of paper and use both the sides.
- Restrict usage of hazardous chemicals.
- Don’t overuse heaters and air conditioners.
- Use public transport to reduce noise, air and light pollution.
- Protect Mother Earth by not spilling oil, garbage, sewage water, etc at undesirable places.
- Stop burning of crackers during marriages, Diwali, etc.
- Don’t dispose off eatables, packaging in oceans, rivers, etc.
Pollution disturbs our ecosystem and the balance in the environment. By following the above simple points, we all can restrict pollution at our own level.
Each year millions of people die due to various diseases caused by pollution. The key to live a healthy life is to protect the environment from pollution.
The increase in the pollution level over the years by human and natural causes has caused severe damage to the earth’s ecosystem. Lifestyle, habitat, etc everything is being adversely affected. Though natural causes cannot be stopped, but human beings’ accidental and deliberate actions can easily be stopped which surely will result in the control of pollution generation.
Types of Pollution:
Major pollutions and their causes:
- Land Pollution – Wastes collated at Earth’s surface, garbage on roads, industrial debris, pesticides, insecticides, etc. Unwanted wastes lying and being decomposed release harmful gases and lead to pollution.
- Water Pollution – Wastes disposed of in rivers, oceans act as pollutant in water bodies. Raw sewage, oil spills, chemical refuse, etc create poisonous water and hence lead to water pollution.
- Air pollution – Burning of fossil fuels, release of gases from vehicles release mono-oxide, carbon-di-oxide, industrial pollution, nuclear radiations etc lead to air pollution.
- Noise Pollution – Vehicle horns, loud music, construction machinery sounds, and other human activities create noise. This affects humans and animals, their natural vegetation and create Noise Pollution.
- Thermal Pollution – Manufacturing activities lead to rise in the temperature of water and land. This affects marine and plant life. Such activities lead to thermal pollution.
Article on Pollution 3 (600 words)
Pollution today poses a major threat to the survival of the world we live in. Smoke or dust released in the air is the major type of pollution as it is extremely bad for the humans as it directly affects the lungs. Sewage, harmful content in drinking water is another major type of pollution that makes people unhealthy and ill because it contains disease-causing germs and viruses.
The environmental consequences of sudden rapid industrialization have resulted in various incidents of land, air and water resources sites being contaminated with toxic materials and other pollutants, threatening humans and ecosystems with serious health risks.
During manufacturing and construction activities every bit of natural resources is exploited to covert these into goods that fulfil the needs of the countries. A major cause for all the causes listed above is the manufacturing that leads to major types of pollution.
People living next to a building site where there is too much noise and construction activities rigorously going on tend to fall sick.
Pollution can be considered as direct or indirect change in any component of the biosphere that is harmful to the living components and in particular undesirable for humans, affecting adversely the industrial progress, cultural and natural assets or general environment of living society.
The biggest irony of all this is that even if we know that the earth is getting polluted, ultimately it is the human beings themselves who dig their own grave by doing deliberate activities because of which pollution is caused. It does not only spoil human beings’ health but also worsen their quality of life.
Role of the Government:
The Government has launched various pollution prevention policies and Acts that focus on preventing and controlling pollution by random means such as the following:
Adoption of clean and low waste technology, reusing and recycling, environment audit and pollution monitoring activities, reducing hazardous materials at source wherever feasible, promoting recycling of waste, etc.
There has also been a concept called “Pollution prevention approach” that seeks to increase the efficiency of a process reducing the amount of pollution generated at its source.
To give effect to the government policies, various steps have been initiated which include statutory stringent regulations, development of environmental standards, control of pollution generated through vehicles, spatial environmental planning including industrial estates and preparation of zoning atlas.
The policy statement for reduction of pollution lays emphasis on preventive aspects of pollution decline and promotion of technologies that help to reduce pollution.
Pollution control is a recent environmental concern. The Government in order to evade pollution has encouraged industries to regard ‘pollution’ as an economic problem and take reasonable actions to control the release of polluted/toxic/harmful gases at their end.
Few major pollution control measures undertaken by the government are:
- Implementation of waste minimization techniques and adoption of appropriate pollution control measures.
- Spreading awareness messages through programs on usage of cleaner technologies and pollution control.
- Assistance for sustainable development.
- Ban on usage of plastic bags, creation of paper bags.
- Creation of no-honking zones.
- Policy of creating industrial sites away from the city.
- Creation of garbage stacks so as to avoid littering on land.
In order to fight this life threatening effects of pollution, vigorous efforts should be made. Anti-pollution laws should be strictly implemented. In order to check water pollution, sewage and the factory wastes should be properly disposed off and vehicles should be made eco-friendly.
Environmental pollution is a global problem today. Public awareness is a must to prevent pollution. Population control will also help to save the world from environmental pollution. Scientific exploitation of natural resources is yet another step to prevent environmental pollution.
Article on Pollution 4 (800 words)
Pollution is an act of contaminating the environment by introducing certain hazardous contaminants that lead to disturbance of ecosystem and directly or indirectly affect the human beings, animals, plants of the ecosystem. Pollution causes the disturbance of the natural system and balance of environment.
Pollution is an undesirable change in the physical, chemical or biological characteristics of air, water and soil that may harmfully affect life or create potential health hazard of any living organism. Technological advancements done by humans are also one of the main reasons of pollution on the Earth.
Various types of pollution are caused, but mainly the following lead to life threatening and adverse effects on the humans:
- Air Pollution
The most dangerous and common type of pollution, caused by release of harmful gases in the air. It is majorly caused due to the direct release of chemicals into the environment by industries. The polluted air we breathe goes into our whole body and affects all the body systems mainly the respiratory functions.
Causes of Air Pollution: Burning of fuels, smoke from vehicles, fireworks, burning of woods, and release of hazardous chemicals or chemical gases from industries or factories.
Effects of Air Pollution: Air pollution causes life threatening diseases like asthma, cancer, bronchitis, lung disorder, and many more. Depletion of ozone layer is also a cause of air pollution.
Solutions to prevent Air Pollution: Conserve energy, stop fireworks, reduce-reuse-recycle, usage of energy efficient equipments, usage of public transport, etc.
- Soil Pollution
Release of harmful substances in soil is the major cause of contamination of soil. Soil pollution causes an indirect damage to humans and other animals. The nutrients taken by the plants are then transferred to the consumers that depend on these plants. Hence a soil consisting of contaminants will not only affect the plants growing on the soil but it will also indirectly harm the entire food chain.
Causes of Soil Pollution: Release of industrial wastes from large factories or industries, release of chemical wastes, agricultural chemicals, deforestation, use of pesticides, mining activities, burning of trees or plants, etc.
Effects of Soil Pollution: Soil pollution causes direct effect on plants growth, soil fertility, change in soil structure, toxic dusts, and chronic health problems to humans.
Solutions to prevent Soil Pollution: Reduce the use of plastics, reduce wastes, crop organic foods without using fertilizers and pesticides, use of biodegradable products, place liquid chemicals in the spill-proof containers, solid waste treatment, reuse and recycle things, etc.
- Water Pollution
Major part of the Earth’s surface is covered with water and more than half of the total population of the species reside in water. Water is one of the most important natural resources for humans and natural vegetation to survive. Water used from a polluted lake directly contaminates its user.
Causes of Water Pollution: Direct incorporation of hazardous pollutants, Disposal of wastes in water from factories and industries, garbage disposal by humans in rivers, etc.
Effect of Water Pollution: Water creatures are on the verge of extinction, drinking contaminated water causes serious health disorders, etc.
Solutions to prevent Water Pollution: Don’t throw waste or rubbish in the rivers, oceans, use water wisely, don’t throw oil, medicines, harmful liquids in the water, buy environmentally safe liquids for cleaning purpose, etc.
- Noise Pollution
Increase in noise level leads to Noise Pollution. It is not caused due to release of chemicals or toxins or hazardous gases but is just the loud noise generated in the environment. Noise is defined as the unpleasant sound that has an adverse effect on the human ear. Though the causes of this pollution are unlike others, but the effect of this pollution is as hazardous as other types of pollutions. It directly penetrates into human minds and leads to mental disorders as a major result.
Causes of Noise Pollution: Major cause is the honking of moving vehicles, loud music, running of machines at sites, radio, TV, etc.
Effect of Noise Pollution: Psychological illness, bad behaviour, irritation, hypertension, depression, forgetfulness, annoyance, stress, aggression and many more. It not only affects humans but also animals and many times lead to their cause of death due to unbearable level.
Solutions to prevent Noise Pollution: Obey the rule of no-honking until and unless necessary, construction of soundproof rooms for the heavy machines, no misuse of loudspeakers, growing trees along with roads are some of the ways to absorb sound.
With the rising rate of pollution over the years, there is a worrisome increase in the rate of human diseases, and death rate of humans, various animals and plants on earth. Though pollution is released both by natural and human activities, but majorly it is created due to human activities, which can easily be minimized to reduce the pollution rate.
