Conserving Resources. Such a huge number of people is bound to put a strain on the environment since, at the end of the day, all of our resources – from the water we drink to the food we eat to the gas we put in our cars – has to be taken from the natural systems around us. 5 Easy Ways to Conserve Resources Every Day.

10 Solutions for Natural Resource Depletion

develop, we’re using more natural resources, materials the earth provides that enable economic gain. In many cases, we’re using these resources faster than nature can replenish them. According to Global Footprint Network, we used a year’s worth of resources in seven months in 2018. While the day when the earth is completely dry and desolate is probably still far off, we’re already seeing some of the effects of resource overuse.

Sand as an exhaustible resource

Environmental Economics

It looks like they are running out of sand in south Florida: Offshore sand has always been the first choice to counter beach erosion. It is inexpensive and does not disrupt reefs or marine life. This is why the Army Corps and the state are hoping that Martin and St. Lucie Counties will come around and free up some of their sand, which could then be dredged and shipped farther south.

Unintended resource consequences of political division

Environmental Economics

Walls and fences can disrupt migratory patterns, access to food resources, breeding diversity, and proper population control. Often we forget the impact our political gestures have on wildlife. There have been many examples throughout history. One such example is the rabbit populations that lived predator free within the Berlin Wall. By living between the two sides of the Berlin wall, the rabbit population was protected from outside predators and populations grew exponentially.

Rainwater harvesting turns weather into resource

Rainwater harvesting systems allow property owners and tenants to use rainwater as a resource instead of having to remove it through roof drains, eaves troughs or parking lot catch basins. by Michael Smith (Veshengro) While for children, an incoming storm typically brings sighs and choruses of, “Rain, rain, go away”, for property owners and managers with rainwater harvesting systems on-site, however, regular downpours can mean a smaller water bill.
