    The world is becoming more advanced and modern day by day and we start not paying attention towards the environment. We are using natural resources so uncontrollably that we forget that these resources are non- renewable. These resources consist of lands, rocks, forests, water, fossil fuel, animals, minerals, sunlight, and air. We get a huge number of things from these resources.We need to reduce waste of these resources to protect humans and the environment of the earth. It will also secure our future generations. There are various ways of conserving these resources.

    Conserve water:- We can not survive a single day without water. It is a very important natural resource but we are forgetting that it is not abundant. The world is dealing with the water crisis in many countries. We can change it by changing our daily habits of misusing water. Don’t waste water while brushing, don’t take long showers, do not overwater your garden. Try some dry methods of cleaning instead of water like wipe your cars with clothes instead of washing them daily and use a mop to clean the floor instead of employing a pipe which wastes an excessive amount of water.

    Save electricity:- The huge amount of our energy is produced by burning fossil fuels. Thus you can realise that once we start saving energy it will naturally save our fossil fuels. It will also help to scale back pollution . We can walk more or cycling than using a bike or car. We can use public transport more than private transport. Don’t keep on light or fan if you are not there. Replace your old appliances with new ones as old ones can use more electricity.

    Reuse and Recycle:- Always try to reduce, reuse and recycle your old products or stuff. You can use e-books instead of buying hardcovers. Try to adopt a paperless lifestyle and use technology to stay soft copies of receipts, bills, chats, and more. Most importantly stop using plastic products. Use clothes or paper bags instead of plastic bags.
