Aoife: “Pollution can cause climate change which can affect different parts of the earth like water, ground and causing things to melt depending on what type of pollution it is.”

Corey: “A turtle might think a plastic bag is a jellyfish bobbing about and it might eat it and it won’t have enough time to realise that it was plastic and it might die.”

Amelia: “People are littering in the sea and leaving plastic and it’s a bad environment for the animals.”

Jacob: “Burning down things is the problem because if you’re burning down trees, what about the animals that live in the trees? They could lose their home.”

Rossa: “I remember a few years ago there were loads of people on the bus but now the buses be nearly empty and all those people are driving cars which make more toxic gases and pollution.”
