Renewable Natural Resources

Those Natural Resources which can be used again and again are called Renewable Natural Resources. They can be replaced or replenished

Sun and air are present in abundance in the Nature.

And, we can grow more plants.

Similar, the animals can reproduce.

 

Non-Renewable Natural Resources
