The theme of 2016 is Trees for Earth. Over the next five years, the goal is to globally plant 7.8 billion trees. Planting trees may seem like an average idea to you, but can you imagine what nearly 8 billion trees would do for the air on our planet? Trees absorb dangerous CO2 gas which is emitted from the cars we drive. They clean nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone gases from our air. Trees also provide food, shade and beauty to our world.
If you truly care about our home, then play a part in preserving it for the future. Avoid chemicals and preservatives used in your food. Help cut down on enormous waste from eating too many animal products. Did you know that one factory for pig consumption generates equal amounts of excrement as a city of 12,000 people? There are cities around the world rationing water and people still drinking toxic water, yet for every 1 pound of beef we produce, 2,500 gallons of fresh water was used to get it to your plate. People are starving, and yet we feed livestock enough corn and oats to nourish 8.7 billion hungry mouths. So why trees, you ask? Did you know that 260 million acres of forest in the United States has been cut down to plant feed crops for the meat industry?
If you believe that life is something that should continue and we should do our best to protect it, then it may be time to start thinking outside the box.
