The correct answer to this question is True. The environment is our home and we must treat it as such. When we treat it differently, it effects us all. The main way we hurt the environment is through not disposing items properly. Many things that we use everyday can be recycled like appliances, bottles, and paper. When they aren't recycled, they go into a landfill.
This can lead to toxins, especially from the appliances, to fill our airways and slow harm the Earth. When items, like bottles, are littered they can end up anywhere. The most common place is in our oceans where the animals can be killed by the bottles choking them.
