We burst crackers on Diwali. While there are people who burst crackers during happy moments, there are others who just burst crackers for no reason at all.

Do you know that bursting crackers causes pollution? You may be wondering how that happens? Crackers have chemicals in them. So, when we burst crackers, noxious fumes are released into the atmosphere.

If we can buy fewer crackers, we may reduce pollution.
