    Many Native American belief systems exalt a respect for mother nature. The Unitarian Universalists have adopted many of these ideas as well. The traditional Japanese belief system of Shinto, is animistic and attributes a soul or consciousness to all things even inanimate objects. The Indian religion of Jainism holds an extreme view of “doing no harm” that extends to all living things even microbes living in the water we drink or the air we breathe (hence why they will filter their water and where air masks); this leads many to be fruitarians since fruit is the only part of the plant for which the plant is not hurt in order for it to be consumed.

    Buddhism teaches that the natural world is affected by the morals of humans.  This belief can be compared to the fact that humans are the cause of global warming, and some may argue that falling morals are why the world is in the state it is today.  The worse our morals become, the more nature will lash out or suffer.
