The environment is a territory where the life of living beings develops and which includes the set of existing natural, social and cultural values. Therefore, it is very important to protect it as it affects the lives of people, animals and plants.
All living things get the support they need for survival and development from the environment, such as food, air, shelter and energy, so it is a source of resources needed for life. However, humans use an excessive amount of these natural resources to meet our needs, this can have negative effects on the future as they are limited resources. Therefore, we must take care of the ecosystem and try to make a sustainable use of resources to prevent their disappearance.
Today, June 3, is World Environment Day to raise awareness of the importance of caring for our environment and motivating individuals and communities to promote sustainable habits and protect the environment.
How to protect the environment?
Carrying out actions to help protect the health of the planet is essential to prevent the problems of climate change from escalating. On a day like today we want to encourage companies to develop more environmentally friendly models, people to adopt responsible and sustainable habits and the government to protect wilderness areas to give importance and voice to the environment.
The main problems that are affecting the environment, and with the help of all, we can change or improve are:
- Pollution of the seas and freshwater
- Air pollution, caused by industries and car use.
- Destruction of natural spaces and forests
- Accumulation of human waste
- Loss of biodiversity
- Global warming
- High energy consumption
As you can see, all of the above problems are caused by human activity and unsustainable actions. If we are all willing to change our habits and take responsibility for our actions, it will be much easier to achieve a better planet and a better future.
