Depletion of natural resources can be prevented if people use recyclable materials, conserve water, dispose of wastes correctly, minimize carbon emission, avoid cutting down of trees, planting more trees and using energy efficient appliances. These are just some of the basic ways anyone can help in prevention of natural resource depletion.
Some of the natural resources that get depleted include water, vegetation and land. Continual depletion of these resources may lead to dire consequences including famines, drought and toxic effects on human beings and animals. Pollution in the form of carbon emissions and poor disposal are a leading cause of depletion. Excessive use of water and cutting down of trees also contribute a lot to depletion.
