Yet, human overused the natural resources that we have today.The nutrient will not go back to the soil if we burn the waste material rather than allow it to decompose naturally.This waste product will go to our environment and will have a bad effect to our ecosystem.We can start taking care of the environment inside our homes by segregating biodegradable from non-biodegradable waste, then making a compost pit for biodegradable waste, so it can fertilize the ground, and giving non-biodegradable waste to the garbage collector for recycling.Each organism here in our Earth depends in our natural resources for them to live.
