About This Course

Man is a product of nature, and like all the other creatures he has to abide by nature's rules. However, so dramatic have been the technological advances and discoveries of the last few centuries, that man's relationship with the natural world has undergone profound, and in many cases, dangerous changes.

How we manage our waste and control substances and items that we consider to just be "rubbish" is a critical factor in the way we need to protect our environment and ensure a quality of life for us and our family.
