In some cases, some people spend too much of what they have; and in that case if they spend it on stupid things; it is as if it was lost.
The same goes with our planet, if we spend too much on things we will end up maybe in some way or another with a loss of resources. By wasting the resources we have without paying attention. We could end up in a situation of that which gives us life has been wasted or lost in a unwise manner.
We use resources for life; and we should stay balanced in doing so and respect the equilibriums.
