Living in a city, there is a likely chance that you experienced pollution. This is especially encountered in minority communities where many factories are placed. Factories produce many chemicals into the atmosphere that directly impact those around it. Our goal is to reduce our contribution in pollution. To do so, we plan on discussing with factories around the Back of the Yards community in hopes that less people are negatively affected.

    Improving communities and the air that we all breathe is such an important topic. I agree that something must be down about lowering the levels of air pollution because especially in Utah, it is a large problem in the winter making it harder and harder to breathe. Thank you for bringing such an important topic to light, I look forward to reading your future writing.

    This is a very important topic because pollution can be very harmful and by taking care of this issue, we will improve living conditions for all. If we don’t do something now, we will then face tremendous consequences.

    I agree with what you are trying to do because we should be able to live in a clean environment and take care of it as well, at the end of the day we are the ones that are going to pay the consequences once we dont have any green resources

    Improving the communities is important because that where we live and should be able to feel safe at least in our own community because that’s our home. A lot of these factories are polluting the air and it affects us in the long run.
