Man is creating an urban environment where so many goods are being concentrated that consumer desire, comparable to predatory instinct, is being over stimulated. From the moment a child can hear a radio or watch a television, this instinct is being stimulated and exploited by loud, noisy radio and television advertisements and garish neon signs and posters. These adverts do not merely beg person to buy, they aim to convince people that they need these things and cannot possibly live without them. This is the outcome of mass production that must find avenues to sell the goods. True, these methods create employment, but the fact remains, they are using up the earth's animal and mineral resources at an alarming rate.
Conservation is the wise use of the earth's resources, so that they can support, or sustain, the generations yet to come. This can be done in many ways and in different situations.
