The Earth is a dynamic planet, as far as it is known it is the only planet which is in this condition to sustain life. Only after the plants and microbes were well established was the planet inhabitable for all the other life forms.
Plants in their abundance provide us with food, medicines and other useful products. Not only are they providing a source of food for both humans and animals but they are the source of our basic requirement for existing that is oxygen. They also have healing powers and emanate positive energies to the surrounding that they are in.
Plants are called as the lungs of the earth, help to maintain a balance in our ecosystem, it also acts as the kidneys of the earth by eliminating the toxic and impure chemicals that are polluting the environment.
Knowing the potent role that plants play in our existence, we should start actively interacting with the plant kingdom with the purpose of enhancing our way of life and for the betterment of the planet Earth.
