Environmental sanitation is the art and science of applying sanitary, biological, and physical science principles and knowledge to improve and control the environment and factors therein for the protection of the health and welfare of the public. It is used to cover the wider concept of controlling all the factors in the physical environment which may have deleterious impacts on human health and well-being. Sanitation is the effective use of tools and actions that keep our environment, including latrines or toilets to manage waste, food preparation, washing stations, effective drainage, and other such mechanisms.
