Light pollution emerges as a significant issue affecting many Poles, with findings indicating that 32% are disturbed by light entering their bedrooms several times a year, while 16% experience this disturbance monthly, and 5% face it weekly. Remarkably, 1% contend with this problem on a daily basis, underscoring the widespread nature of the issue.

Similarly, noise pollution, often referred to as acoustic smog, poses a notable challenge, particularly in urban areas. A third of respondents rate night noise levels in their surroundings as medium, with fewer than 10% considering them high. The impact varies significantly based on locality, with residents of villages and small towns reporting less disturbance compared to those in larger cities.

Public sentiment reflects a strong desire for regulatory intervention, with 75% of respondents advocating for legal measures to control light and noise intensity. A significant 43% believe such regulations should apply universally, while 30% suggest focusing regulations solely on urban areas.

The Domondo-Elephate report highlights a critical need for holistic approaches to address sleep disruption in Poland, emphasizing the role of both individual actions and governmental policies in promoting healthier sleeping environments. As Poles navigate these challenges, the study underscores the importance of continued research and advocacy to foster meaningful change in sleep quality nationwide.
