During the 20thcentury, there has been development of methods as well as technologies that aim at reducing the effects pollution causes. These have mostly been triggered by people’s continuous recognition of the environmental and public health effects that are as a result of anthropogenic activities. As a result, regulatory as well as other legislative measures that are instrumental in helping to minimize the negative effects of pollution are being adopted by various governments. Similarly, international agreements like the sustainable development goals have various strategies on how to ensure a sustainable environment and minimize pollution. These principles mainly focus on reducing negative impacts on water, air as well as land. They also focus on prevention and control. Additionally, integrated solutions are also incorporated because simply using spill kits to manage spills just to transfer the kits to land through bad solid waste management practices is not enough.
