The natural environment includes the living and non-living things that occur naturally on Earth. Our natural environment affects weather, water supply, air quality, vegetation, and more. Human activity can and does negatively impact the function of our natural environment. The environment’s condition directly impacts the health of human bodies and even plays a role in sustaining mental health.


The term sustainability takes on different meanings, but one of the most simplistic and widely used reads: “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

As the natural world around us changes, it is unable to provide a safe and healthy environment for humans, animals, and crops. These adverse effects are often slow compared to the individual life span but are increasingly evident with each generation. Working with the natural world and decreasing our impact on the environment can improve the health and longevity of our children, grandchildren, and so forth.
