The impact we have on the environment today is making a big difference on the world of future generations. It’s even making an impact right now in a lot of places. It’s our responsibility to care for our planet and ensure our future well-being. There are many reasons for why we should take care of our environment. One of them is the fact that you will be happier in life if you focus on giving rather than receiving, and treating the environment well is one way to give to the others in your generation. By treating the environment well, you make this planet a better place to live in for everyone. You help yourself and other people have higher quality of life. Another is that whether we realize it or not, we can only live by consuming resources provided by this planet. Take energy for example. We can get the energy we need to support our lifestyle only by consuming resources like oil and coal provided by the earth. This is not to mention basic needs like food and water. If we have received so much from this planet, can’t we do something to give back to it? Treating the environment responsibly is a way to give back to the planet.
