The environment is the word which includes all the biotic and abiotic elements surrounding us. It includes animals, plants, insects, lakes, seas, oceans and etc. The race for development has led in destruction of these biotic elements of the nature. Ranging from industrial effluents to the domestic wastes each human activity directly or indirectly affect the environment.

The race for development has started in the late 70’s where many countries like Britian, Germany and many more started. Without realizing the amount of pollutants to be released in the environment each country started a sort of a competition. The competition began so rapidly that air, water, land, soil and ground water started to pollute. This adversely affected all the living beings.
