A lot of dry leaves are collected in a school garden and are burnt every day. Do you think that it is right to do so? If not, what should be done to dispose off the dry leaves?

Answer

Burning dry leaves causes air pollution because various harmful gases are released like carbon monoxide. Therefore, instead of burning, they should be composted as it does not give rise to any type of pollution, in fact, act as manure for the plants and trees.
