An Environment is a place where different things are such as a swampy or hot environment. It can be living or non-living things. It includes physical, chemical, and other natural forces. Since everything is a part of the environment of something else, the word environment is used to talk about many things. An ecosystem is also called an Environment that consists of all plants, animals, and micro-organisms in an area functioning together with all of the non-living factors of the environment. The Environment plays an important role in the healthy living of human beings as well as animals. It matters because it is the only home that humans and animals have, and it provides air, food, and other needs. Humanity's entire life support system depends on the well-being of all the environmental factors. The four major components of the environment include the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere, corresponding to rocks, water, air, and life respectively. Healthy ecosystems clean our water, purify our air, maintain our soil, regulate the climate, recycle nutrients, and provide us with food. The environment provides ecosystem services to society. They do provide a measure of the known impact of ecology on the global economy, whether they are public goods, common-held resources, or natural capital stocks.

An Environment plays a vital role in the healthy living of human beings. It matters because it is the only home that humans have, and it provides air, food, and other needs. The Environment plays an important role in regulating air and climate. Another reason the environment is so important is that it is the source of natural beauty, and it is necessary for proper physical and mental health too. 

 The need for protection and conservation of the environment and sustainable use of natural resources is reflected in the constitutional framework of India and also in the international commitments of India. Some of the important legislations for environment protection are as follows:-

1) The National Green Tribunal Act, 2010

2)The Air(prevention and control of pollution) Act, 1981

3) The Environment Protection Act, 1986

4) The Hazardous Waste Management Regulations.

Environmental laws are here to make sure the management does not have a bad effect on human health and environment and that is meeting a proper set of procedures and standards.
