Some of the effects of land pollution include soil pollution, negative environmental impacts, health hazards and air pollution. Another effect of land pollution includes unusual weather activity, such as acid rain.

Land pollution is caused by deforestation, agricultural activities, mining activities, overcrowded landfills, industrialization, nuclear wastes and sewage treatment. To cut back on land pollution, many steps should be taken. Individuals must recycle, reduce the use of pesticides and other harmful chemicals, avoid purchasing products that are packaged in excessive packing materials that will end up on the landfill and learn how to prepare and eat organic foods that are grown without pesticides.
