Yes. Fireworks use charcoal, calcium and sulfur compounds that ignite and create particulate matter. These pyrotechnic chemicals are bad enough before color comes into play; each different color has different chemical compounds. The end result is blackpowder as a base and metal salts from teh colors.
Fireworks litter the ground and the water as well. The litter is obvious; what isn’t obvious is the water. After fireworks have been set off, high levels of noxious perchlorates can be found in the water.
Annual fireworks celebrations pollute more than just the air. The smoke produced by fireworks is dense with metals, sulfur compounds, and chemicals. The remnants of this then rain down on neighborhoods and people, and many times go against the Clean Air Act. But there is also all the other waste associated. The chemicals can contribute to acid rain and water supply pollution, upon falling to the ground they leave pieces of litter, not to mention the litter produced by those attending these events.
Yes. Fireworks are typically made from heavy metals which can be toxic to the environment and people’s health. When fireworks are lit, these chemicals can be spread over large distances, contaminating bodies of water and causing respiratory and health problems for their viewers.
