Short Essay On Our Environment

Environment has become a burning topic of discussion and debate, on all public platforms. The more the discussions, the more the awareness, and the dirtier the environment. Isn't it a thing to wonder about that, while we talk so much about, a lot is also being done in this regard but, the environment keeps on deteriorating.

On the outset, let us analyse what all environment includes. All that is around us is called and included in the term environment. This environment affects us physically, mentally, and even spiritually. There is so much contradiction in discussions and decisions and ground realities that, the talk and net result are poles apart.

We keep on shouting from housetops platforms about keeping our environment clean but, when it comes to contributing to the cleanliness of the same, all us, yes, all of us contribute to the polluting of the environment.

For a simple example, we all agree that, we must keep our surroundings clean, but all of us clean our own houses and throw the rubbish out on the road, or in front of the neighbor's house. In this way we are only adding to the dirt in the environment and not to keeping it clean.

We are here again not clear about what environment should mean. Environment is not only our home, but all that surrounds the home. So, if we dirty the road or the neighbor’s portico, we are dirtying the environment.

From the home, let us shift our focus on the outside of the home. Let us take a round of any market place and the common scene will be huge piles of rubbish smelling kitchen waste and paper and polythene bags flying all over. With this surrounding we can hardly claim to even deserve talking of cleanliness in the environment.

This only shows without a doubt that we keep contributing to dirtying the environment and just talking about the cleaning of the environment. Let us understand that, only talking about a thing will not serve any purpose, we have to work towards the goal. We have all to be conscious all the time about our responsibilities of keeping the environment clean.

It is not that no work is being done in this sphere but, it mostly goes waste as, all of us are not conscious of our duties and responsibilities in the matter. We keep contributing to the dirt, and talking all the while about cleaning the environment.

Let us understand that, unless we make it as our own duty to maintain the environment, very little may be achieved in the matter.

Environment does not only mean the dust and dirt outside in the air but it also includes the dirt within our minds. The environment also gets affected by dirty minds.

Thus, while we are talking and also working on projects of cleaning the physical look of the surroundings, we must also ensure a clean and healthy thinking. Up to now, no one has ever brought out the pollution of the thinking processes.

Protecting the Environment
by Branko

Every company should invest in our environment. We live in a time when the environment is in danger, so it is important to protect it. We need a healthy environment in order to survive, so we must protect it. We need to protect the environment now to help prevent health problems, to maintain the ecosystem, and to preserve the Earth for our children.

Pollution from factories and cars can cause damage to the environment. It makes the air dirty. Breathing this dirty air causes health problems, particularly for children and the elderly. Pollution not only increases spending on health care, but also decreases working ability. We need to control the amounts of pollution we produce in order to prevent health problems.

We also need to pay attention to the ecosystem. Plant life, animal life, and people all depend on each other. An unhealthy environment disturbs this ecosystem. For example, changes in the environments might cause a certain kind of plant to die. If that plant is food for a certain kind of animal, the animal will die too. If people use that animal as food source, there could be big problem. To avoid the big problems, factories should pollute as little as possible and use natural resources rationally.

If we do not protect our environment it will continue to get worse and our children will suffer the consequences. The air and water will be dirtier, natural resources will become scarcer, and more plants and animals will die. Our children won’t have as much natural beauty to admire. Even worse, their well-being will be threatened.

Without clean air to breathe, a healthy ecosystem, and a future for our children, the human race will not survive. That is why protecting our environment is important. If we have a healthy environment not only the company is going to make a profit but also workers, customers and community.
