Good waste management will also support the ecosystem. Which one of these options describes good waste management?

So we do a lot to support the world's ecosystems, but are we doing enough?

All of these measures are great and we should keep them up. At the same time, however, we are also doing a lot that harms our ecosystems around the world, which means that ecosystems are still suffering.
