Importance of living things

Along with my family, relatives, neighbours, friends, coworkers, etc. Next are my pets, livestock, landscaping plants, lawn, pastures and nearby woods. Follow that with the wonders of natural organisms around me, the ecosystems which I interact with daily; they are all important. They provide us with oxygen, food, beauty, energy, pleasure, sport, endless study, a source of income, and survival. They affect our evolution, physical and mental well being, and contribute to our sense of belonging and interaction with nature. How important are living things? Extremely important.

Importance of non-living things

Non-living things are also important to us, such as we use the chair to seat, we use the blackboard to write. If we do not have a sure thing, living things cannot replace them.
