Happy International Plant Appreciation Day

April is full of great ways to celebrate our earth and do good things for our environment. On April 13th, we invite everyone to celebrate International Plant Appreciation day with us by planting a tree.

International Plant Appreciation Day is a celebration of the numerous benefits of plants outside, in our homes, and at our places of work.

The benefits of plants are numerous and include:

  • Provides the air that we breath as they change the carbon dioxide in the air into oxygen
  • Provides food and drink (i.e. tea, basil, cinnamon, cayenne, garlic, lemon)
  • Increases humidity
  • Provides shade and break the wind
  • Helps lower noise levels
  • Proven to increase worker productivity and attendance
  • Improves the look of your property (inside and out)
  • Some plants can even remove toxins from indoor air
  • Color Therapy: along with blue, green is the best color for creating a calm atmosphere.

How can you celebrate International Plant Appreciation day or any one of the other earth related days to come this year?

  • 1.Give live plants as gifts instead of cut flowers: Cut flowers fade away, while a live plant brings long-lasting pleasure.
  • 2.Plant a tree for every year you've lived on the planet
  • 3.Grow a live Christmas tree: then transplant it in your yard or garden
  • 4.Grow your own fruits and vegetables to give away
  • 5.Discover the miracle of starting seedlings... : Growing your own seedlings is one of the most rewarding things you can do.
  • 6.Share seeds, plants, and clippings from your garden
  • 7.Help a friend grow a garden indoors or outdoors
  • 8.Commune with Nature: Go for a walk in the woods, smell the flowers or hug a tree!
  • 9.Compost your kitchen scraps: Give your veggie and fruit trimmings a second life, through composting.
  • 10.Teach kids how to garden: a fun way to teach them about math, biology, science, responsibility and respect for their environment.
