Forests keep us and our planet alive. But no, wait! We want those dead trees in our homes and offices. Hemp is the only plant that can save our forests which results in our survival. But it is prohibited to even grow! Is this worth caring about?
If you deliberately destroy or damage public / private man-made property, you are termed a vandal and the act is called VANDALISM.
The funny thing is:
If you destroy the trees and forests created by nature, you are termed a visionary and the act is called PROGRESS.
Our ecosystem, once destroyed might take ages to revive itself,
if it all it dies!
Approximately 30% of all the land on Earth is covered by forests. Each one of us uses forest products every single day.
Newspapers, tissues, cheque books, bus tickets, it's an endless list.
More than 2 billion people depend on forests for their basic necessities like food, water and shelter. Almost 60 million indigenous people live in forests all over the world.
Forests Maintain humidity,
Keep greenhouse gases in check,
Prevent soil erosion,
Prevent floods &
Help increase fertility of the soil.
Today with the growing climate changes and the global warming phenomenon, which has been melting the polar ice caps, the need to preserve our forests and heal our planet is of paramount importance.
Why did deforestation happen?
Intensive Agro-industrial farming, which includes producing Soya, Palm oil, corn
Production of paper; it is estimated that approximately 400 million tons of paper is produced every year globally which contributes to a major chunk of deforestation.
Colonization, establishing cities and towns for the ever-growing population
Trees are being cut down to be used as fuel.
While India has gained approximately 5871 square kilometers of forest area between 2010- 2012;
most of this land is being used to implement several development projects like industries, roads, agriculture and dams.
What do we do now?
STOP Deforestation | START Afforestation | START Reforestation
Plant two trees for every tree that is cut down.
Plant trees which are more effective in preventing soil erosion and keeping air-pollution in check.
Reduce the cutting down of trees - Find alternate sources of raw materials to fulfil our needs like paper, wood etc.
Start planned afforestation in necessary areas
Welcome to the world of Hemp!
Hemp can solve most, if not all of the problems faced by us due to the vanishing forests. A cheaper, pesticide-free super crop, Hemp has many uses. It gives,
Imagine not having to cut trees for wood or paper!
Imagine a world without the immortal plastic!
Imagine not having to dig into the mother earth for fuel!
Imagine a plant that can make the soil more fertile by absorbing pollutants!
Imagine no more farmer suicides!
Imagine a possible cure for HIV, cancer, diabetes, etc.!
Imagine pristine waters and clean air!
Imagine a plant that has over 50,000 uses as an alternative to exploiting multiple natural resources.
ONE PLANT - ONE WORLD
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE!
OUR FORESTS ARE VANISHING!
The countdown has begun and if we don't act, we are sure to face:
Loss of habitat
No medicinal plants
and many more problems.
We all need to realise the possibilities Hemp can bring to reduce the damage already caused by us and build a sustainable environment-friendly economic system.
