Peter gives suggestion on how people can treat the environment better. In the psychological aspect argues that people should avoid going for what they do not need (Wenz, 2001). For example, he argues that excess shopping is disastrous to the environment. In this, he argues that people should not go for shopping if they do not need it (Wenz, 2001). Excessive purchase of products takes a lot from nature food and material depletes from nature money and food.
Removal of an organism from its environment can often leave irreversible impacts on the environment its self. Historically humans have overharvested animal and plant species to maximize their short term profit, even though it is at the expense of the sustainability of many species. Over harvesting follows a pattern – species are harvested from the wild to make a profit which then encourages more people to get involved in the species extraction. This competition then encourages the development of large scale of extraction which eventually causes extinction of the species. The most common example of overharvesting is fishing.
Remaining responsible is vastly important to any organization. Many strategic plans will alter some of the organization’s policies, procedures, and practices. When conducting the environmental scan, management must collect information for the company to understand what is and what is not ethical. According to Wheelen & Hunger (2010), Riordan’s ethical responsibilities “are to follow the beliefs and behavior of the organization in society.” As a plastic manufacture, society expects Riordan to use recycled plastic to help protect the environment. By using up older water bottled, Riordan can help protect the environment by not polluting the environment by producing more.

Cutting down trees deprives the forest of portions of its canopy, which blocks the sun’s waves throughout the daytime and holds in heat at night. This disturbance leads to additional life-threatening temperatures swings that can be risky to plants and animals. Trees also play a serious part in taking in the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. Less woodlands means greater quantities of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere—and increased speed and brutality of global warming. From an economic, political and social perspective, the destruction of the rainforests due to the greed of humans have detrimental effects to our earth and safety of the people living on it.
The reading assignments for this week has been very educative about the environment and making it a better place for living. In this written assignment, I will examine some of the ethical issues related to population growth and their effect to the environment. Also, I will propose solutions to these problems base on the reading material available for this Unit. But before I continue, I wish to introduce us to environmental ethics and its definition which I think it is very important for us to understand so as to know our role to play in this beautiful planet. Environmental ethics is the discipline in philosophy that studies the moral relationship of human beings to, and also the value and moral status of, the environment and its non-human contents
Thus, ecotourism can be interpreted also as tourist activities that reckon ecological values in order to improve the welfare of the people around tourist sites.

The community must protect local forests and plant trees in order to save the environment from deforestation. Sensitization and Educative Campaigns: The community can create an awareness for deforestation. An awareness is a simple and understandable solution to minimize the impact of deforestation. Awareness programs makes it easy for people to understand why they should not cut down the forests because people like farmers who are affected by deforestation will share their personal experiences which will motivate the community members to stop deforestation. The community must stand up and try to combat the cutting down of
