This project focuses on pollution that affects the residents in Miami Dade County due to the emission of gases. We analyze why it is crucial for citizens to reduce pollution to have a better environment. We researched the causes and the possible effects. Lack of recycling is one of the main causes, and as an effect pollution increases. Our group recommends three solutions to minimize the problem. One of them is that landfills or dump areas must be checked regularly. Lastly, this project offers the opportunity become aware of methods to minimize pollution and support Sustainable Development Goal #13.
