We are born into an established world, but we enter a relationship with our natural environment with an awareness produced by social life. We approach our natural environment with a style of behavior and thought that we got from our family and close social circle since our childhood.

In spite of there being many things in our environment that we need to pay attention to and protect, usually,, we do not even notice them.
