A bit about renewable and nonrenewable resources.

Natural resources that qualify as “renewable” resources are, for example, oxygen, fresh water, solar energy, timber and biomass. However, these resources can become non-renewable resources if consumed at a greater rate than the environment’s capacity to replenish them. For example, ground water may be removed from an aquifer at a greater rate than the sustainable recharge. Human consumption and use at sustainable levels primarily use renewable resources versus nonrenewable resources. Renewable resources include commodities such as wood, paper, and leather. Gasoline, coal, natural gas, diesel and other commodities derived from fossil fuels are nonrenewable and have to be made again. Some commodities like plastics and diesel (mostly made from fossil fuel) have manufacturing methods developed for biodegradable plastic and biodiesel. Unlike fossil fuels, a renewable resource can have a sustainable yield.
