GROWING ROOTS FOR THE FUTURE
Why Plant Something?
Little or large, planting benefits the environment in many ways. Not only are plants lovely to look at, they also play a very important part in keeping the natural world healthy.
Plants reduce pollution by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air and giving off oxygen – just what we need to survive!
If your garden has edible plants that you can eat, it means that you don’t have to shop at the supermarket as much!
Plants help remove chemicals and bacteria from water in the ground.
Trees and plants absorb sound and help with noise pollutions. Great solution for those who live near highways and railways.
By tending to your garden and plants, you’ll have fun and help out the planet too!
GREENER IS CLEANER
One tree can remove 26 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere annually, equaling 11,000 miles of car emissions.
One of the most important factors in neighborhood satisfaction is the abundance of trees and well-landscaped grounds.
Carefully positioned plants and trees can cut as much as 25% off your household’s energy consumption for cooling and heating.
By adding quality, low-maintenance landscaping to your home, you can boost its resale value by 15%.
