Believe in the power of forests

Planting trees and looking after the natural environment is important for our wellbeing and that of all life going forward.  Our legacy for future generations needs to be one of a healthy natural environment. Basic resource management and implementation of “reduce-reuse-recycle” techniques is simply not enough.  And since we need to be addressing our overall environmental footprints and not simply our carbon ones, planting out forests of thousands of indigenous trees is the most practical and sustainable method to invest in.

 

Health Insurance for Our Natural Environment

Our individual health and well-being (which determines the quality of the lives we live) are of prime importance as a human race. Having a community of happy, healthy people is a beautiful thing. Since we are intrinsically connected to our natural environment, we would be naive to consider our own individual health and well-being without considering that of our external environment. Anything and everything that we address in respect of our own health and well-being needs to be addressed in the greater context of our existence, since we are completely and utterly dependent on our natural environment for our existence, survival, growth and development. Our natural environment provides all the resources we need to simply survive (the primary being air, water, food and energy, in that order). The quality of these offerings influences the quality of our lives and the quality of our growth and development.

We plant trees

Our connection to the natural environment is not simply a physical one, but has implications for our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being as well. Simply being in and close to nature has a positive effect on our mental and emotional well-being. We’ve all experienced how the forest green of nature creates a feeling of balance, centredness, restful calm as well as being restoring, healing and grounding.

… the healthier Mother Earth and her ecosystems, of which we are a part, the healthier the resources we can draw from her and the greater the well-being we derive from her…
