If you destroy a tree, you also destroy leaves, flowers and fruits, and the country has lesser
or excess rainfall resulting in famine.

It's your mother calling. DON'T KEEP HER ON HOLD!
Due to this respect people refrained from activities that would disturb Nature. If they had to do a constructive activity that could hurt the peace of one or more elements, they would perform puja like Bhoomi puja and seek forgiveness. The performance of daily Agnihotra, yagas and the churning of ocean were some of the acts of periodic purification of environment, interwoven seamlessly into our lifestyle.
But mimicking the consumerism of the West led to contributing to the woes of earthly beings. It is high time we pick our acts up. It is our responsibility to clean up the mess that we have made of our place of dwelling. Love the earth which is the only one we've got.
"Mata bhumih putro aham prithivyaha"
Earth is our mother and we are Her children!
According to the Vedic Dharma, the Environment, God and Humans are integral parts of one Whole or the Brahman. Reverence, compassion and non-violence towards all elements of environment have been central to the Sanatana Dharma. The Vedic seers were well aware that each organism small or big, simple or complex plays an indispensable role in the balance of environment. This was achieved through different approaches like Gods taking the form of animals like fish, turtle, boar etc., designating plants the status of worship like Tulasi, depicting animals as vehicles of Gods and so on.
