Is it serious you are, Janelle? If so, here's my answer!
"Environmental resources", means things, "sourced", derived or harvested from the natural environment: things provided by nature to which we have recourse to meet our needs viz: things of value. That includes, for example, timber, rock, oil, coal, crystals, corals and gemstones, water (by pumping from rivers or by damming) all kinds of animals (feathered, firred or finned) all kinds of edible plants (including healing herbs) and the produce of insects (e.g. honey) etc etc.
Your question seems to assume
that we need to reduce consumption of these resources (presumably on the further assumption that we are currently harvesting too much and/or that our current methods of harvesting are too destructive). The question seems to be
, can we do so and still continue to improve our quality of life.
You might want to consider who, "we", are too. Developed countries consume vast quantities of these resources while, arguably, the less developed under-consume. There is also the question what level of consumption is actually necessary to a good quality of life and, indeed, what represents a good quality of life.
When you think about it - that's quite a question you are thinking about isn't it?
Best wishes and good luck, I hope the above is helpful and you receive other, and better, answers.
