In nature, we take a little and give back the little in balance.
In the materialistic consumer society, corporations give to us and take from us what they deem to be a profitable price for their gifts. But actually they take from nature first. They take infinitely from her and give nothing back to her. The only cycle they are interested in is the one between them and humans, because it is the only one that promises them profit. A cycle between them and nature does not seem profitable.
