Question:

What was the views of Gandhiji on resource conservation?

Gandhiji voiced his concern about resource conservation in the following words: “There is enough for everybody's need and not for any body's greed.” He placed the greedy and selfish individuals and exploitative nature of modern technology as the root cause for resource depletion at the global level. He was against mass production and wanted to replace it with the production by the masses.
