Humankind, ever since it first came into existence, has the need to live in a society and environment to sustain life. The communal lifestyle brought with it the individuals growing in numbers and thus in requirements producing higher levels of technology, the need for more space for settlements, consumption of finite resources, pollution of living spaces and the daily decrease of natural resources. In this case, it falls to the individual to come up with answers to the questions of how to make more efficient use of technology, how to solve problems and minimize the chance of any problems surfacing in the future. One way to do this is to be informed about environmental problems, providing solutions and becoming conscious to eradicate the roots of these problems.
Rapid population growth, and in parallel to this, the developments in industrialization, urbanization and trade (and accordingly, transportation), the answer to globally rising needs in every respect, can be named as the leading cause of increasingly rapid consumption of natural resources and the decrease in agricultural land and forestland. In time, these facts create environmental problems that are hard to prevent. Air, water and land pollution as a result of blind industrial development, destruction of green spaces by urbanization, pollution created by the improving trade and similar activities are the leading environmental problems.
