Science has proved Earth is only planet to live, out of 9 of Solar system. It has an environment needed to remain alive. It has given us food and all the important things required for life.

Blue sky covers the earth with various kinds of birds flying. Water in the rivers is flowing from high altitude mountains through deep oceans. Mother Nature has provided everything to men.

Huge trees in dense forests produce fresh air to breathe in and different animals in the forest help to balance this ecosystem.

This is Environment, important for us to stay alive, it is to be balanced.

Growth of civilizations and industrial revolution has disrupted all the balance among the environment.
