Keywords: Environment, contaminants, ecosystem, ozone depletion, potential trace elements.

An ecosystem borders on overall complex network of interconnections between the environments within a habitat. To make the ecosystem substantially habitable for both plants and animals, contaminations into the natural environment that could result to adverse changes to it must not be introduced. Human activities can influence nature generally and, on an environment, the change can be overwhelming giving the ravaging effects of present-day climate change for instance. Among the major threats of environmental problems that disrupt the natural equilibrium is the reckless discharge of pollutants generated from industrial activities. This paper highlights the character and impact of man-made environmental pollutions and suggest ways to combat anthropogenic pollution in our environment.
