Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters - Colossians 3:23
H.O.Y (Humans of Yahweh) has proudly partnered with OneTreePlanted, an environmental charity, to help global reforestation. For a better world, and a promising future.
Trees are extremely important to the environment for 6 reasons:
Trees cleans the air we breathe and reduce the effects of climate change. In fact, through their leaves and bark, they sweep up particles (dust and smoke, for example), absorb harmful pollutants (such as nitrogen oxides, ozone and carbon monoxide) and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.
Did you know that a tree can intercept over 15,000 litres of water per year? Yep! Trees remove not only pollutants, but they also play a key role in preventing natural disasters, harmful waterslide erosion and over-saturation and flooding, because of their intricate root systems.
Not only trees help us breathe better, they also help reduce stress and anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature. Bonus, shade provided by tree coverage helps protect our skin from the ever-increasing harshness of the sun.
The forestry industry provides tons of job opportunities to over 1.6 billion people. Besides that, sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and shelters, and wood to burn for cooking and heating. Also, let's not forget that food-producing trees provide powerful nutritional fruits, nuts, berries, and leaves for consumption (by humans and animals).
As we know, a single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants. Sadly, without trees, forest creatures would have nowhere to call home.Thus, planting trees with us means helping our little (and not so little) friends to have an adequate habitat!
''A mature tree can absorb an average of 48 lbs of carbon dioxide per year, making cities a healthier, safer place to live.'' Yep! By absorbing and storing harmful gases into their trunks, branches and leaves, trees release purer oxygen back to the atmosphere and help reduce our planet's ambient temperatures.
