Benefits of Tree Planting: Social and Environmental

When it all began: Earth Day 1970

Ever since the modern environmental movement was born in 1970, April 22 has been marked as Earth Day.

The Fight For a More Sustainable Future Carries On

Start marking your calendars — July 28 is World Nature Conservation Day. While Earth day marks the monumental point in history when the world’s frontrunner in modern advancements began leading environmental initiatives, World Nature Conservation Day digs deeper in the purpose of why we should and how we can protect the home we live in.

Tree-Planting as the Straightforward Solution

Trees are a symbol of life, transformation, and hope. As more people become aware of the issues the world is facing and will continue to face due to climate change, tree planting activities have become increasingly popular.

Trees Provide Comfort and Cool in the Urban Landscape

It’s easier to see the effects of global warming in the urban environment. The materials and shapes of the structures affect heat distribution, with surfaces like concrete and asphalt heating up from the sun, contributing to the rising temperatures, especially in the summertime.

One of the most pressing global issues is climate change

Ironically, the cost of rapid technological advancements in transportation and manufacturing that aims to make our lives easier comes at a cost — a cost so pricey that in turn makes progress moot as it gradually harms the planet we live on.

Nature Rewards Her Most Loyal Stewards

Even if you don’t live in a city, chances are you’ve found yourself wishing you were on a beach or mountain vacation, if only for the beautiful scenery and the opportunity to breathe in some cleaner, fresher air.

A Community Unified by a Common Goal for the Greater Good

As a collaborative activity, tree-planting projects also have several social benefits. By educating communities about its environmental benefits and raising awareness of climate change, community spirit and unity are built and made stronger.

Celebrating Progress Without Compromise

All of us know how beneficial it is to take a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life to spend some time in nature. The Japanese even coined a specific term for being surrounded by nature: Shinrin-yoku, or “forest bathing”.

The Vision for a Sustainable Future Through Progress

Apart from environmental efforts like tree-planting projects, the vision of providing a good quality of life without compromising ease of life is also realized by many private corporations nowadays, who are offering their products and services that are produced or sourced sustainably.
