+Overview

Pollution describes materials and substances that are released into the air, water, or soil, and that disrupt the health of ecosystems. These disruptions can occur as physical obstructions, such as when the natural flow of streams are blocked by garbage pile-ups or when animals eat bits of plastic and choke on them, or as chemical obstructions, such as when pollution carries toxins into the environment.
