Renewable energy is energy that comes from natural resources that are never depleted, such as the sun, wind, and water.

These energy sources are important because they do not harm the environment and are never depleted. For example, solar energy is generated from the sun, which is always there. And wind energy is generated from the wind, which never stops. Another important source of renewable energy is hydroelectricity, which is generated from moving water.

On the other hand, non-renewable energy is energy that comes from natural resources that are depleted over time, such as oil, gas, and coal. These energy sources are very useful, but they can also be harmful to the environment if used excessively. In addition, when they are depleted, there will be no more resources to generate energy.

It is important that we learn to care for the environment and use renewable energy whenever possible. Some ways to do this include turning off lights when we don't need them, using less hot water, using bicycles or public transportation instead of cars, and choosing products made with sustainable materials.

If we all do this, we can ensure that we always have clean and safe sources of energy for our needs!
