Trees and priorities

As you breathe while reading this on your wireless device, consider the trees and other plants that take in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen to help you out. Our collective fitness literally depends on them continuing to do that!

Living trees and other plants help us in many other ways too, by creating cleaner, cooler, quieter environments for us and for other animals, who in turn pollinate plants, aerate soil, and generally keep Earth's terrestrial systems running. For those of us that eat food – of any sort – it's something to appreciate.
