In other words, life depends on a healthy, sustaining environment. While humans use materials to improve the quality of life, care must be exercised to ensure that the natural resources are not exhausted and that the environmental conditions remain favorable for all living things to thrive.

For example, as decisions are made for technology to extract resources from the planet, there must be measures taken to maintain the quality of air, land, and water to sustain life now and into the future.
