What does it means to be an environmentalist?,To be an environmentalist means an individual advocates the preservation of natural resources and helps insure the natural beauty of the land, too many people in the world take the planet’s natural resources for granted and are leading its people to believe there is an endless source of it, but in actuality that is not true and we will eventually run out of our earth’s natural resources.

I personally think that each and every person can make a difference on helping our planet by restoring nature’s environment even if its something small like planting a tree. I try to be aware of the difference between wanting and needing, not buying what you see but only buying what you need, it would make a big difference if everyone would just be aware of things that affects our environment and try to consider that you could actually make a differences in making the choice to helping our planet.
