However, in the recent decades, it is being noticed that we humans are destroying environment for our selfish needs and are completely unaware of the fact that, this destruction would lead to destruction of life on the planet.

Deforestation is another major issue which is disturbing the ecological balance. Cutting of trees have become a major trend in the name of urbanization and industrialization.
Without realizing that trees are the source of existence of life for many. Artificial fertilizers which have many harmful chemicals in it are destroying soil, and these chemicals are also entering in human bodies indirectly in the form of food we take.
Environment plays a significant role in our existence. It not helps in nurturing human beings, but also many other species depend on environment. Everything we use to live in a healthy and comfortable way comes from environment. Imagining life without water, air, sunlight, plants, trees is next to impossible.
