Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Pollusion Free Nation

Smoke is a major air pollutant even in the big cities like New york and Beijing, like in our cities smoking cigarettes is not allowed since the city council started working hard to ensure that non smokers are on the safe side of life. They created and build smoking zones for the smokers, also they try hard to ensure trees along highways and within the cities are safe from cutting pangas because the tree arrest rainfall and bring cool and fresh breeze within the city thus leading to a conducive environment. Also the litter beans and bays are every where in town to ensure that all waste are kept and to make the streets better place to be in. These is a city change because once in a life time our city was like a no go zone, full of trash, tins and unpleasant air.
