    Natural resources are living and nonliving materials in the environment that are used by humans. There are two types: renewable (wildlife, fish, timber, water) and nonrenewable (fossil fuels and minerals).

    There is a huge range of plastics used in disposable products and packaging, and this plastic cocktail often makes it difficult to separate the reusable plastics from the non-reusable ones.

    When we speak about conserving nature, we are really talking about taking care of our future, because nature provides essential resources for our survival and enjoyment.

    Reusing papers means fewer trees cut down and more oxygen available. Recycling plastic means less non-degradable material to destroy our ecosystems. Taking old devices to recycle means many pieces could be reused and the exploitation of the finite reserves of rare metals can decrease.

    Community ecology - takes a look at the community, defined as all the populations that live in a given area. This includes all the different species populations. The focus here is usually on the interactions between the different species and how their numbers and sizes all mesh together and how change in one population change the dynamic of the whole community.

    Simplify your life as much as possible. Only keep belongings that you use/enjoy on a regular basis. By making the effort to reduce what you own, you will naturally purchase less/create less waste in the future.
