Resources and waste /
"Earth is abundant in natural resources, such as water, food, timber and metal. For the continuing success of life on our planet, we must manage these valuable resources in a sustainable way. In this book, you will learn to identify renewable and non-renewable resources, and discover where they come from within Australia and how they are used. You will also explore the difference between sustainable and non-sustainable resource management practices - how we make sure that every part of our collecting, using and discarding of resources and materials is done in such a way that it has minimal impact on the environment around us." - Back cover.
