"When we plant a tree, we are doing what we can to make our planet a more wholesome and happier dwelling place for those who come after us, if not for ourselves".
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
Ecosystems everywhere are being fragmented, depleted and destroyed. As a result, the earth’s ability to sustain life is being seriously reduced, and the crisis point is rapidly approaching. Some experts suggest that we have no more than 30 years to turn things around.
Do you know,half the Earth's forests are gone, and growing demand for wood threatens those that remain. Growing demand for chinese food increased the demand for chop-stick and to fulfill that many forests are cut daily. What else to say, half of the forests that originally covered 48 percent of the Earth's land surface are gone. Only one-fifth of the Earth's original forests remain pristine and undisturbed.
Please avoid wood and wood related products. If using, then plant 10 trees in ratio of 1 tree cut.
