An eco-Friendly lifestyle is one that is simple and mindful of the environment, in which you make choices depending on the impact they will have on the environment. Environmental stewardship is vital to ensuring that the earth remains clean and safe for animals and humans.

Ecology, according to scholars, is the study of an organism’s relationship with its environment; it examines the environment and the principles that control it on a number of levels and our interactions with it. Environmental legislation should define ecologically detrimental activities, enforce specific requirements or standards, and ban hazardous activities. The objective is to safeguard our natural resources and to recognise enterprises that affect them. This is critical because it focuses on safeguarding both humans and the many plants and animals that make up the larger environment in which we live.
It protects the environment and its ecosystem by ensuring that individuals, governments, and other collaborating parties do not destroy it.

Environmental principles
1. Nature Knows best
2. All forms of life are equally important
3. Everything is connected to everything else
4. Everything damages
5. Everything must go somewhere
6. Ours is a finite earth
7. Nature is beautiful and we are steward of God’s creation

Ecological footprint

This is the only metric that measuring how much nature we have and how much nature we use. As it relates to the environment and illustrates the major environmental concerns, including

– Water issues
– Air issues
– Climate change
– Wastes and pollution
The life cycle of a material is: Raw material acquisition – Material Manufacture – Production – Transportation – Use/reuse/maintenance – Waste management.

Waste is any unwanted or useful materials or discarded objects.

Waste Management

This highlights the processes and actions necessary to manage waste from inception through disposal, encompassing the collection, transportation, treatment, and disposal of trash and the monitoring and regulation of waste management processes, laws, technologies, economics, and methods.

Waste hierarchy
a. Reduce: this entails prevention, looking more closely at needs and availability of alternatives. It encourages the control of materials to understand the amount of waste we produce and help reduce the production of waste.
– How much waste do you produce daily?
– What is your disposal system?
– What is the effect of these waste to the environment?

b. Reuse: This concerns the reuse of materials in the life cycle of material expectancy
c. Recycle: this is a resource recovery practice which refers to the collection and reuse of waste materials.

Awareness * Participation * Conservation

In summary, understanding these changes that turn into harm to the environment is the crucial point in all aspects. Most of these changes are brought about by how we relate to our environment. Participation is one of the rooted differences in releasing harm to the environment at different levels. Also, conserving this aspect helps create awareness in following through with an eco-friendly lifestyle, most of which are incorporated with our ideas and values.
