Environmentally friendly communities don’t stop here. They are committed to preservation of natural resources and these people always work on encouraging eco-friendly options like community playgrounds, green constructions, more use of solar energy, more use of public transport (or walking if possible) and other things that make this world a better and healthier place to live. We all have to be aware that natural resources are used to create and support the life we live, but they’re disappearing because we don’t bother to keep them. When we consume all this resources we can completely forget the life that we so comfortably live. Only recycling and conserving water and fuel we can continue to live the way we are used to.
