Environmentalism is both a philosophy and a social movement that is about protecting nature. Environmentalists often talk about threats to the earth from pollution and overpopulation. Environmentalism is both personal and political.
In their own lives, environmentalists do things that are better for the earth, such as recycling, using natural products, and supporting businesses that try not to harm the environment. Politically, they support laws that help the environment, like laws against pollution.
The word Environmentalism comes from ‘environmental’ and ‘-ism’. ‘Environmental’ is the chemical, physical, and biological components of the environment while ‘-ism’ is a suffix used to create action nouns out of verbs.
