Importance of environment

The environment is everything around us. All our surroundings including the air, soil, water, plants and animals make up the environment. Plants and animals need a healthy environment to survive. We can drink only one per cent of our planet’s water and 97 per cent is salt water. Six to eight million people die annually from water-borne diseases and disasters. So, it is very important to protect the environment for the future.
