“ Only when the last tree has been cut down…
Only when the last forest animal is killed…
Only when the last fish is caught and river poisoned…
Only then… will we realize that one cannot eat money….”
In 1820, there were around one billion people in the world. Today, the population is reaching 6.5 billion. There are now more people on the planet and the natural resources remain the same and some fast depleting. The scientific community, today, states that the current rate at which human beings are consuming resources and producing waste will prove highly unsustainable in the long run. The Earth will not be able to maintain this imbalance forever.
Sustainability is an concept promotes equality between the people of today and the people of tomorrow. Sustainability is to create a balance between our ecological, social and economic needs. Ecological sustainability means using our natural resources wisely in the short-term so that these resources are available in the long-term. To ensure that the environment is not adversely affected forever, human beings need to start adapting to lifestyles that reduce burden the environment and help in preserving the Earth’s resources for the future.
