HOW CAN WE SAVE RESOURCES FOR FUTURE GENERATION????
We need to manage our national resources very carefully to ensure that the Earth remains in a habitable condition for future generations. We must preserve the greatest treasure of the Earth, the nature. Water should be judiciously used in regions where it is scarce. After all, in many parts of the world, people are still fighting for this valuable commodity. We need to make sure that we use non-renewable natural resources like coal, petroleum sparingly and use renewable resources like wind and solar energy more for our daily needs. A research to develop a harmonious way of living is very important for our future.
WHAT ARE NATURAL RESOURCES????
The term ‘resource’ is derived from French and means ‘tools’. Natural resources are the raw materials and the sources of energy present on the Earth. They include the deposits of coal, crude oil, or natural gas. The basic needs of our existence such as air, water and soil, which gives us food, also belong to resources that we may be able to exploit in future. In economics, resource also means workforce and money.
IS NATURE THE GREATEST TREASURE OF THE EARTH????
Nature is an immense treasure that provides us with everything we need for our survival – clean air, fresh water, cultivable lands as well as plants and animals, with whom we share this planet. Like all the living organisms, we too can use the nature, but we must always be careful . If the sensitive equilibrium of plants, animals, and water is disturbed, it can lead to grave problems, such as the threatening environmental pollution. We need to remember that nature is not indestructible. After a certain amount of destruction, it can no longer ‘heal’ itself.
WHY DO PEOPLE FIGHT FOR WATER????
For us, water coming out of the tap is a fact that we take for granted, but for many people across the world it is an absolute rare commodity. A large part of mankind does not have access to clean drinking water. This is a good reason to fight for water. In many areas of Africa, especially the dry areas of northern Africa, lack of rainfall can lead to a famine which leads to water hoarding. Although scientists predict that in future water will become one of the most hard-fought resources, the fight for water has already started. Many countries across the world are constantly at loggerheads regarding the right to water of a river flowing across the border.
WHY ARE QUALITY SEALS IMPORTANT????
There are many types of quality seals, for example, the bio-seal for food items which are grown ‘biologically’, Which means without the use of chemicals. The Fair-Trade seal is often found on coffee or cocoa. Fair-Trade implies that people involved in the production of these products have also received an appropriate share of the profit. The FSC-logo marks the wood coming from forests, which are not damaged by cutting the wood. By purchasing the products marked with quality seals, we can support the idea of handling nature with care. We can help protect the environment by buying products with quality seals.
