Earth Day Pollution Project



So we did a few things for Earth day this year and this was one of them, I seen the idea posted a few times on Pinterest and so we did the same experiment. Caleb and I walked around our neighborhood and collected small trash {with gloves} and placed the trash in a tall glass jar filled with fresh clean clear water. After we placed the trash in we sealed the lid and placed it away for two weeks. When two weeks was over we took it out and was surprised at how nasty and cloudy the water had turned. It only took two weeks to pollute the water. Molds and other bacteria's were present. The moral of the story for my son was not to litter trash on top Mother Earth. Specially our water sources and oceans. If it only took 2 weeks to pollute our small glass jar imagine our ocean and what it would do to it on a larger scale. Scary huh? Take care of our Earth, don't litter.
