‘Ari Ago’ back to the old days – an exhibition of the Ari area’s traditional lifestyles.
‘Ari Ago’ invites you to come back to the old days with an exhibition of the Ari area’s traditional lifestyles.
“The plan for the Ari Ago exhibition was created from the view that global warming has become widespread and is affecting the population of the world, which causes turbulent weather conditions, unusually hot weather, and also natural disasters. Thailand has a policy to develop the country into an industrial country. Which is a source of pollution that causes greenhouse gas emissions as a result. The creation of the exhibition “Ari Ago” was created to make the participants of the exhibition understand the past of the Ari area. In matters of way of life, living, economy and society, as well as being aware of the current increasing waste problem. By aiming to change the participants’ behavior in the way of life styles or the use of plastic more cost-effectively in order to reduce the negative impact on the global environment to be less, which will be presented through the exhibition “Ari Ago”.
Causes and effects of waste pollution
cause of waste pollution
Waste is a major problem for many localities around the world. Most of the waste is dumped into the soil. Some wastes decompose to produce organic compounds and inorganic compounds, but some wastes are difficult to decompose such as leather, plastic, metal, etc. If this type of waste is destroyed by incineration, it produces compounds. Salts, such as large amounts of nitrate salts, accumulate in the soil as waste from the industrial production process.Waste from industrial technology is increasing rapidly. It is extremely toxic and difficult to decompose, for example.Industrial waste containing heavy metals such as lead, mercury, and cadmium, when dumped into the soil, causes the soil in the area to accumulate a lot of heavy metals. In Thailand, as reported, it was found that there is a deterioration in the quality of the soil from lead due to the lead smelting plant using the remains of old batteries in Samut Prakan Province to fill the road, which causes the soil in that area to become toxic and harmful to plants and consumers. In addition, Thailand also faces the problem of industrial waste imported from other countries in the form of electrical products Industrial parts such as old tires, and batteries and rubber gloves were imported and dumped in Thailand in large numbers.
the impact of waste pollution
- Polluted air is caused by burning waste outdoors, causing smoke and airborne toxins, deteriorating air quality.
- Waste water caused by garbage heaps on the floor. When rain falls on the garbage heap, very dirty wastewater will flow into the river.
- Sources of vectors arising from piles of garbage on the floor, which cause a breeding ground for rats and flies, etc., which are carriers of contagious diseases, resulting in impacts on the health and sanitation of the public.
- Inadequate garbage collection causes annoyance and unsightliness, including garbage piles on the floor.It emits a foul odor that disturbs the public and creates an unattractive image. In addition to the above environmental problems, garbage is also a major contributor to the problem of responsible department waste management, which must increase the number of personnel waste management equipment, including the provision of technical knowledge and technology to staff as waste increases.”
