Reduced Land Pollution
In this digital era, most universities still require paper assignments and projects from students which eventually results in lots of paper waste and cause land pollution eventually. Online students can turn that paperwork into the digital copies to save the environment this way.
Reduced Air Pollution
No cars or busses, nowhere there will be any air or noise pollution. Mobile vehicles release excessive carbon emissions And Covid 19 pandemic has been a proof of it. WHO has given the factual reports that CO2 emissions have been reduced during this pandemic? So if mobile vehicles are not used for going to universities then we can save the pollution from the environment. It is said that 1 gallon of gas causes 24 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions to enter the atmosphere.
However, if you’re taking courses online, rather than driving to a university, you can minimize your impact. By skipping the daily commute, you’ll save the Earth from those carbon emissions and reduce your footprint. Plus, you’ll be able to save money on gasoline costs.
