Green Living with natural Resources

 By Jake Kasner 
Green living is a natural way 

of living that is good for you 
and also the environment 
that you are living in. 

Green living might not 

benefit you today, but you 
have to worry about 
tomorrow. Green living is set 
up for a better tomorrow 
Natural Resources
Natural resources (economically referred to as land or raw

materials) occur naturally within environments that exist

relatively undisturbed by mankind, in a natural form.

Natural resources are derived from the environment. Many of

them are essential for our survival while others are used for
satisfying our wants. Natural resources may be further classified in
different ways.
