Why plant trees?
It acts as an AIR CONDITIONER: 1 Tree = 10 air conditioner
It supplies OXYGEN: 1 Tree = 1 Day of oxygen for 4 people
It absorbs CARBON DIOXIDE: 1 Tree= Absorbs 1.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide
Plants have been part of our lives since the beginning of time. The use of plants to heal or combat illness is probably as old as humankind. Out of these simple beginnings came the pharmaceutical industry. Yet today, the view of plants is very different from how it all started.
With most of us being health conscious and use natural herbs for curing illness, YGF is promoting medicinal plants with its importance so that people plant the saplings and take care of them.
