The benefits of growing green are numerous. For instance,
help the environment as they work to absorb carbon dioxide and prevent soil erosion by absorbing
waters. Research suggests that growing trees can reduce temperatures in cities by up to 7°C.
Unfortunately, however, the trees have been disappearing at an alarming rate. Over half a million
miles of forests, roughly the size of South Africa, have been lost in between 1996-2016. About 17
of Amazon forests have been destroyed according to figures released by the National Geographic, and
figure is growing.
Addressing this challenge lies in our commitment and ability to
growing green seriously. Several organizations have been campaigning for growing trees as well as
in general. In part, this is because trees offer ways to tackle climate change. According to recent
research, planting trees on around 0.9 billion hectares around the world could potentially suck up
two-thirds of the number of carbon emissions generated by humans since the industrial revolution.
Individuals, as well as companies, can look out to collaborate
organizations to grow green. For those that live in urban areas and concerned about not being able
green, the cities are now becoming roof-top farms with many like-minded individuals exhibiting
towards urban green farming. More than combating the world hunger problem, the benefit of small
urban farming lies in the social impact of the activity over the individuals participating in it.
