Human environment is hence the interaction between human beings and the environment. The difference between human-made and human environment is that the former comprises non-living things, a result of human activities while the latter is the interaction between human and the environment. Human beings usually modify the natural environment as per their needs. Once the human settlements started, humans began the trading of articles amongst themselves. This was called as the barter trade.
