Trees absorption of CO2 is averagely 22 kg per year and everyday trees supply Oxygen for up to 4 people. Moreover, they also help cleanse the air that we are breathing right now and they will continue to do so for our future generation if we take care of them. So questions we ought to ask ourselves are trees worth planting and preserving?
Deforestation and development are activities that we unable to say stop as the population will continue to grow and we will need more land for the development as it is something beyond our control. Nonetheless, we can help out in another way.
Like any cliché answer “we will start planting trees for our CSR Program” after the plating what is next? So Teaffani Catering realized that planting tree alone will not have that much of an impact. Thus, instead of planting trees that will grow and will only provide oxygen for us. We at Teaffani Catering decided to create a mini garden which we are able to see the fruit of its labor physically. So we did a mini vegetable garden such as okra, white eggplant, Chili, and more.
The reason we have this garden is to help the environment as well as allows us to enjoy the fruit of our labor 3 months down the line. This activity has more impact as the employees of Teaffani Catering will appreciate and understand the benefit of planting our natural oxygen provider.
We are aware there are no stopping population, technology, and development of the world. However, we have other ways to help the world for the use for our future
generation. This is our responsibility as the current tenant of the earth. You won’t plant thousands of acres of tree and have a forest in a day, and we have to start somewhere. “All big things have a small beginning” (David, 2012) so stop whining and start planting.
