At The Spiritual Planet, We Care About Mother Earth
We partnered with Tree-Nation, a nonprofit organization that allows citizens and companies to plant trees worldwide and offset their CO2 emissions. We are excited to announce that Tree-Nation will plant a tree in your name with every product you purchase.
Trees are vital pillars of the world for both humans and the environment. Known as the "lung of the planet," they produce oxygen and absorb about 2 billion tons of carbon every year. They benefit us by purifying water, air and creating better social conditions. They help the environment by providing homes for various life forms, cooling our climate, and improving our soil.
We derive many medicines from tree bark, leaves, and flowers of different species. These elements are used in herbal medicine, but many compounds in pharmaceutical industries are based on those originally extracted from trees.
Trees and nature have improved mental health and cognition in healthy individuals and those with mental illness.
Forests support approximately 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity, ranging from small invertebrates to large mammals.
Trees also support large numbers of insect populations, with some trees such as Birch and Willow supporting upwards of 300 species of insect.
As many as 100 species a day could go extinct from loss of closed tropical rainforests.
Trees make the soil less vulnerable to erosion. The tree canopy also protects the ground underneath.
Tree detritus (often fallen leaves) enables nutrient recycling between the trees and soil.
Tree roots both loosen the topsoil and increase the porosity in the subsoil. Also, the reliable source of carbon from perennial trees benefits the microorganism in the soil, which binds the soil particles together, improving the structure.
