Taking care of the environment is taking care of human life. In spite of seeing everyday motives for which it is important to protect our environment, there are still people who ask why?… Why should we take care of our planet?

It is important then to think and know that the world doesn’t belong to us, it has been loaned to us to live in it and to use it wisely. And that is what we must do… live, not destroy.

But also, we must protect our environment because we need it. A lot! We depend on it to exist. Our planet gives us all the natural resources we need to feed, build our houses, have light, transportation, clothing, etc. Look around you for a second… everything you see – paper, pencil, computer, eraser, etc.- is obtained, directly or indirectly, from the environment, that is why it is important to ensure is ability to continue providing for us.

If we destroy the environment we will be damaging ourselves, our children and our grandchildren. Taking care of the world is taking care of ourselves and that is another good reason ¿don’t you think? Create Environmental awareness is knowing our environment, our surroundings, taking care of it, protect it and preserve it.

Environmental Awareness, is the understanding of the impact we the human beings have in the environment, meaning; understand how the actions we make everyday affect the environment and how this affects the future of our space and our children.

Environmental Awareness for example: understand that if I, regular citizen, waste a natural resource, such as water, tomorrow when I want to use it again I won’t be able to, because I didn’t preserve it and made conscience of the rational use of this resource so important for human life. Let’s not forget that all the resources the environment provides for us are very important and we must make good use of them. Tha is to environmental awareness.

The Environmental Awareness, is achieved with education, in all levels of society, at every moment and place we must educate to create awareness.
