As Man lived in close association with nature there was no threat. Nowadays degradation of common property and threats to biodiversity affects the society in great level. For sustainable development the mentality of human beings should change. Environmental education has become increasingly more popular in recent years. So by pouring thoughts through works related to Eco literature and Eco criticism is making way for the humans to think.
