Solution: Environment contains a wide variety of natural resources, flora and fauna. Our ecosystem is balanced by all the natural resources and organisms. 

With the increasing human population and over utilisation, we have exploited these natural resources. 

To avoid natural calamities and climate change we have to look after our environment properly and preserve the nature that we have today for next generations. It’s our duty to contribute to the conservation of natural resources.  

Practises for the conservation of natural resources include:

  • Avoid using vehicles like bikes and (using petrol or diesel) rather use bicycles and walk for short distances.

  • Use public transport to reduce fuel consumption.

  • Recycle the products of plastic and metal.

  •  Avoid wastage of water.

  • Turn off the lights whenever it’s not required.

  • Avoid use of non-biodegradable materials like plastic and polythene bags.

Practises that deplete natural resources include:

  •  Wasting electrical energy  by not switching off the electrical appliances after use.

  • Wasting water by ignoring leaking taps and leaving tap on while using water.

  • Excessive usage of plastic and polythene bags and other products.
