Ideally, a green environment denotes a living surrounding that is sustainable, naturally green and thriving, and full of species biodiversity. This is a kind of surrounding that has not been negatively impacted by modern life and bad climate change. This is where anything done on the environment is viewed as green ranging from building design, economical activities, agricultural activities as well as social activities. Smart and environmentally sustainable structures constructed on the environment are examples of what makes a green environment.
Green environment is the end result that brings into balance, the conservation and preservation of the earths’ natural resources, habitats and biodiversity with human cultures and world communities. Indeed, in such communities, living creatures understand that a green environment is one that is continually conserved and preserved. A good examples is where people do not interfere with wet lands and other ecosystems negatively by cutting trees and doing nothing to maintain a pleasing and sustainable ecosystem.
Proponents of green environment have always agreed that a green environment is one that is characterized by green living. Green living is making sure that our life styles, agricultural and economical activities, create and maintain a naturally green and ideal ecosystem. For instance, a green environment can result from practicing recycling of waste materials such as plastics and riding to work to reduce environmental pollution.
Moreover, green buildings can be incorporated into the surrounding to nurture a green environment. These buildings are constructed to reduce overall impact on biodiversity. This involves using safe energy, water, as well as reducing waste on the environment. Good land usage practices and controlled soil erosion will result to a green environment at the end of the day. Building green and managing such buildings well will create an ecosystem that is pleasing and green.
Many environmental experts have stated that a green environment will always demonstrate a landscape that is full of thriving flora and fauna. Their observation is that a green environment is one that is environmentally polluted and such surrounding will support proper growth and development of many species. Well-managed natural resources are also said to be the backbone of a green environment. In order to create this kind of surrounding, every measure should be put in place to make sure that the environment is sustainable. Examples of such measures are controlling environmental pollution and planting more trees as well as practicing green agriculture.
Ecological balance is a term used to describe the equilibrium between living organisms such as human being, plants and animals as well as their environment. Photosynthesis that takes place in ecosystem contributes to building good environment that stabilizes the coexistence of all organisms. Harmonious relationships reflect healthy and desirable ecological balance. Human being plays a key role to maintain ecological balance because they have the highest thinking capacity as compared to other living organisms. Sufficient food availability to all living organisms and their stability reflect the existence of ecological balance. Therefore, this balance is very important because it ensures survival, existence and stability of the environment.
Survival of all organisms is actualized due to ecological balance. Various species survive because favorable ecosystems were created. Favorable ecosystem ensures that each organism thrive and multiply as expected. They get enough food to keep them alive. Ecological balance is also important because it leads to continuous existence of the organisms. It ensures that no particular species is exploited or overused. For example, human activities such as farming and resources exploitation are checked to prevent excessive destruction of the forests. Deforestation leads to drought. Drought reduces food production resulting to insufficient food. Insufficient food leads to starvation and later death occurs, hence reducing the existence of some species.
In addition, ecological balance ensures stability of the organisms and environment. It creates conducive environment for organisms multiplication and thriving. It enhances stable environment that is free from ecological imbalances such as flood, hunger caused by drought, wind storm that may wipe out everything and over hunting of the predators. This calls for collective efforts to ensure stable environment is created. Human activities influence the environmental stability. Tree planting and reduced deforestation rate prevent undesirable climate change. Control of excessive wild animals’ inhabitant maintains desired population growth. Therefore, human has the capacity to contribute positively to create and maintain ecological balance.
In summary, ecological balance brings the existence of the world. Earth’s inhabitants such as human beings, plants, animals and other micro living organisms continue to survive. These species get conducive environment to multiply and thrive. The world gets to produce sufficient food to all species. Hunger caused by drought becomes history. This is because drought will never be experienced at any point. Also, green environment is maintained. This means that, the world achieves its equilibrium state that benefits and protects all living organisms in it.
