Network Green, educators helping the world to live greater by teaching how to reduce, reuse, and recycle within the home, as a family, and at work. To live green means learning more about where our natural resources originate from, how to identify the types of resources we use, and implementing a plan to reduce the use of our resources.
Natural resources are defined as either biotic or abiotic. Biotic resources are mineral fuels, animals, marine life and organisms, forests, and many products that are derived from these various types of resources. Abiotics are found in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we live on. Many abiotic resources include mineral ores such as gold, iron, and copper.
Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626) said it best, “Knowledge is Power”. With the right information, tools, dedication, and support, together we can begin to change the way we live, begin to reduce our landfills, think of other ways to reuse products and packaging, and increase the awareness of recycling.
"It is our future generations who are going to live our legacy and it is our legacy that will choose our future generation’s legacy."
