Why do we need to Conserve Our Natural Resources?

              Natural Resources economically referred to as land or raw materials, occur naturally within environments that exist relatively undisturbed by mankind in a natural form. Natural Resources are derived from the environment. Many of them are essential for our survival while others are used for satisfying our wants. But in recent years our Natural Resources was slowly vanishing by means of people who abuse it because they do not know the limitations of it. Abusing it can cause food shortage and can also cause Global Warming .Once it has been totally vanished our life would come to an end . That’s why we need to protect it, we need  to secure it and we need to conserve it.


          We need to conserve our Natural Resources because it is the main source of our daily needs. We need to conserve it because they are limited only. And if these resources are abused and harmed, we will have short quantity of sources for food and living. At the same time, we can also be harmed. Because when illegal loggers log the trees endlessly in mountains, the rain that falls on mountain will not be absorbed by the trees, then it can cause mudslides that can affect those who lives on mountainside. Population explosion in last few decades has put a lot of pressure on our Natural Resources and this has led to over exploitation. Sustainable living is a very important idea and should be the basis of our living standards. We need to stop all kind of wastage. We need to understand that our Natural Resources are limited and over exploitation will harm not only us but the coming generation more. Remember our future generation will need also our Natural Resources. We can also help conserve it by simply using our materials wisely and do not waste it. There are simple ways to help in conserving our natural resources. These are the “3R Concept” 3R means “REDUCE”, “REUSE” and “RECYCLE”. Example in papers, our used papers will reuse by recycling it and turn it into a new paper product. By means of that we can reduce the number of trees that will cutted-down just for our new paper products. So to reuse materials is to recycle it so that the amount of materials that comes from our Natural Resources will reduce. And now we can say that we conserve our Natural Resources.


            Natural Resources are essential for our survival and are used for satisfying our wants . But our natural resources were dying because of us, by abusing it, by wasting it. And now what will happen to us is that we will suffer hunger, we will suffer death. So if were the one who destroys it we will also be the one who conserves it. And to conserve it we must used our Natural Resources products wisely. Remember the 3R Concept, to reduce. to reuse and to recycle. Those are the ways to conserve it. But I think the greatest reason and answer to the question “Why do we need to conserve our Natural Resources?” is simply because, God made us. And God generously gave these Natural Resources to us humans for us to take care of it and consume it wisely and so we have to take care of what God had given us. So please, conserve our Natural Resources.
