Natural World Responsibility
Natural resources are what we need every day to survive such as air, water and food. Because we rely so heavily on these resources, it is our duty to protect them and ensure they are not depleted.

Adults spend their days working hard at the office or enjoying a cold beer watching Sunday football. We have little remembrance of how it feels to sit on the porch and...
