We are on the planet called ‘Earth’ and by far o human’s knowledge it is only the plane where there is life. And the reasons for this planet being our home are the resources that it provides. From oxygen to water to foods, this planet has everything. When civilization started on the planet, there must have been a lot of Greenery on it. Well, the earth still has forests, but comparatively the area has shrunk a lot. And it happened as the humans needed space to live, to make homes, and to make places where they can produce goods. With the growth in population, the size of forests shrunk and more and more trees are thrashed down for some of the other purposes. In the race of advancement, we forget the importance of Greenery for our good health.
Can We Imagine Living In The Sahara Desert?No! Because there is no greenery and thus it counts too many other difficulties of surviving there. And just like that, if we keep on thrashing down the trees for luxuries and comfortable living, there will soon be no life on earth. It is high time that we all start doing out bits to improve the Greenery of earth. Those who are living in high-rise buildings and flats can order indoor plants in Hyderabad or wherever they live. And those who have open space inside the boundaries of their home can plant trees and flowering plants.
