We live in cities that have reached their maximum pollution level. Our lives are sustained by machines which are all running on harmful gases that are continuously releasing toxic elements into the environment. The only way we can make the air we breathe a bit cleaner is by planting more and more trees in the environment. Planting more trees has become more than just a good habit; it’s a need of the hour.

Certain plants also have health benefits as they help control Blood Pressure, reduces stress, give a sense of calm, peace and freshness. With such major benefits, plants also beautify our house and make them greener.
