"My Home"

Earth is my home, my families home, your home. Our sources will not last forever, our population is growing,disease is spreading and trash is taking over the beauty of our planet. Everything that we can recycle, and cut back on use, will help. We use our recycle container faithfully as well as re-using and cutting back on plastic containers, papers, and paper towels. We are also using vinegar for more of our cleaning. Also, what amazes me is the cutting down of our rain forests, for example the Amazon Rainforest.

"The Amazon Rainforest has been described as the "Lungs of our Planet" because it provides the essential environmental world service of continuously recycling carbon dioxide into oxygen. More than 20 percent of the world oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rainforest." Also "The U.S. National Cancer Institute has identified 3000 plants that are active against cancer cells. 70% of these plants are found in the rainforest. Twenty-five percent of the active ingredients in today's cancer-fighting drugs come from organisms found only in the rainforest."www.rain-tree.com/facts.htm

Very true. The natural life forms on our planet are truly amazing. People have used herbs and plants for healing purposes since mankind first walked on this Earth. Many of us forget to look up at the stars or keep to manmade paths when out walking. Unspolit nature trails are VERY theraputic as are the sounds of waves breaking on the shoreline. Yup Nature is a precious gift we all should cherish and look after

It is beautiful and especially all the unknowns that live deep in the forests, just makes it worse about them being ruined. Build up and not out, and preserve what nature we have left :) Thank you
