Unfortunately, the quality of the land can be compromised through pollution resulting from anthropogenic activities.

These alter the natural physical and chemical properties of the land, leading to a decline in the soil quality and environmental degradation.
When people talk about saving energy, they often get bogged down in the same topics – seal your drafty home, install a programmable thermostat, paint your roof white and similar tips are often shared.
