There is a great need of maintaining the safety and cleanliness of our environment. We all understand that environment means all that surround us. Therefore, soil, plants, water and air are important parts of the environment. Each of these has special ways of protection.
If soil is not protected, it becomes less productive. In such a situation, the crops farmers harvest become of low quality. This happens when dangerous chemicals are spilt on soil. Excessive use of inorganic fertilizers is another way of contaminating both soil and water. Instead, farmers are advised to use manures which do not have any negative effect on soil.
Plants, one of the major parts of the environment, need to be protected as well. Young plants or seedlings should be taken care of until they become big trees.

    1. Soil plants water and air.
    2. Everything that surrounds us.
    3. Plants and animals around us.
    4. All that surrounds soil, plants, water and air.

    1. The poor type of manure they use.
