Take a second and think about all the things around you. The wind blowing by, the sun shining down, the people that you know, the vegetables in your kitchen, the bus you ride to school—everything you encounter is part of your environment. We think of the environment as the sky, the sea and everything green, but it is much more than that.
Your relationship with the environment is a two-way street. If you want the environment to take care of you and keep you healthy, you have to take care of it. Learning about the world around you and about how you impact it every day will help you become a more thoughtful and helpful citizen of the world. Taking care of the environment is important for your health now and in the future.
