The universal phenomenon of excessive consumption of natural resources actually remains a subject of public interest and concern. The objective of this essay is to outline both the potential problems of this negative tendency and appropriate ways of dealing with it.
Consuming considerable resources will cause inevitable environmental pollution. The low efficiency of resources use in factories may aggravate this problem. One of the best solutions may be encouraging companies to adopt more eco-friendly equipment, making optimal use of materials. Meanwhile, local governments can enact stricter environment-protection standards to normalize the enterprise operations.
In addition, since available natural resources are quite limited on the earth, the overuse of these restricted resources will worsen the shortage of natural materials and lower people’s standard of living indirectly. It is well-recognized that only a few natural resources can be used directly in our daily life. For example, the drinkable water accounts for just less than 1% of all the world water resources. Also, to meet the basic needs of people, some alternative materials have been invented when some resources are in a short supply. For instance, artificial cotton, a material which is made from rice straw, has replaced cotton in clothing industry in recent years. However, the clothes made of artificial cotton are definitely not as comfortable as the natural ones. Wearing these clothes means a lower life quality to some people to some extent. To address this problem, people should develop a more active attitude towards economizing resources, leading a low carbon life.
To summarize, consuming natural resources at an increasing rate may pose a threat on environment and people’s life. Business, governments and society should work together to solve these problems.
