The study of Ecocriticism brings a message of embedding the virtues of loving Mother Earth. As of which is supported by the aims of ecocritical teaching, to instill the conscious mind of human beings to have sense of belonging to the nature and construct their self-awareness. In this case, “green” morals are therefore inferred become an essential target to be achieved.
