Environmental Importance


Natalie Hornbaker, Staff Writer

Humanity’s entire life support system depends on the well-being of all the species living on earth. For those that do not know, caring for the environment does not require you to become an environmental activist – just to care for the environment and make eco-conscious decisions. I would like to help you understand why you should care about our environment. If you want to make a change to your world, feel free to join Environmental Club. In Environmental Club, run by science teacher Kim Williams, you are taught how to make an impact on the world and others around you.

Here are a few reasons why it is so important to treat the Earth correctly:

1. A Clean Environment Is Essential for Healthy Living

The more you do not care about our environment, the more it will become polluted with contaminants and toxins that have a harmful impact on our health.

2. It Is A Reflection of Your Character

Nature gives us so many things for free – clean air, clean water, beautiful landscapes, breathtaking views, and the list goes on…We take so much from nature, but what do we give in return? Pollution?

3. Earth Is Our Home

It is where we live, so we better take care of it!
