Is it natural way to say:

He takes steps to help environment in regeneration.


  • It's a way. "He" helps the "environment". What seems strange to you? – Victor Bazarov Oct 23 '15 at 13:11
  • You could say "preserve the environment" – user3169 Oct 23 '15 at 20:10

There's a grammar error.

I would say:

He takes steps to help the environment in regeneration.

Watch out for that "the"!

Otherwise, the sentence is fine.

Even then, most native speakers usually omit the regeneration when talking about the environment, figuring it out from context unless they are explicitly talking about regeneration.

He is taking steps to help the environment.

This sentence is grammatically correct and makes sense, but it sounds more natural to ad an article before "environment".

He takes steps to help the environment in regeneration.

Use of a definite article is important in this sentence if you want to sound like a native speaker:

A definite article indicates that its noun is a particular one which is identifiable to the listener.
