When we talk about environmental issues one has to understand that there is only one Earth on which human beings can exist (At least until we find out another planet in another solar system where life is existing). On this earth man is not the only life form. There are crores of other forms co existing. This co- existence itself is part of the property of environment.
Can we think of a situation where there no plants and trees ? Can we think about an earth without any animal other than human being? Animal here include the micro organisms too. Many of the trees and plants as well as animals are helping humans to continue on this earth. So it is clear that an environment where all these can co-exist will be a healthy and habitable environment.
Hence we must always be careful to keep a healthy environment. If we pollute our water or our soil the effect will be loss of quality life. So try to.keep our environment pollution free. Air pollution will affect water, which will affect animals and plants. Like that pollution is a chain process.
