You may wonder why a cleaning service wants to discuss the importance
of trees and plants… Let’s say… We are all connected.
The forest helps us to breathe and gives us clean air: Did you know that more than 10 people can get nourished by oxygen from a single tree? Well, trees are the typical lungs of the Earth as they absorb carbon dioxide and change it to oxygen. The air we breathe is less harmful to us because the forest trees act as a natural filter to remove the harmful particles and provide good air quality.
To keep a healthy household you should ensure good air quality. By opening the windows you would get rid of indoor pollutants, home dust and unwanted odours. Proper ventilation is important for learning, has a profound effect on cognition and in general can make you happier and more productive. While cleaning, choose safer formulated cleaning products reducing sources of indoor air contaminant to protect air quality. And remember – keep your windows open, let the air circulate!
Trees help in keeping dirt in its place: A forest’s root network stabilises huge amounts of soil, bracing the entire eco-system's foundation against erosion by wind or water. Not only does deforestation disrupt all that, but also the ensuing soil erosion can trigger new, life-threatening problems like landslides and dust storms.
What is dust?
Dust is a mix of sloughed-off skin cells, hair, clothing fibers, bacteria, dust mites, bits of dead bugs, soil particles, pollen, animal dander, sand, insect waste, and microscopic specks of plastic. Studies show that dust is a chemical soup with low levels of flame retardants, phthalates, pesticides and metals like lead, mercury and arsenic. Higher levels are often found in dryer lint and vacuum cleaner bags. *2
The elimination of dust is very important since this type of dirt causes several problems like the transmission of micro organisms that cause diseases, allergies and asthma. Control of dust transmission in the household or workplace benefits you and the environment.
Medicines can be found throughout the forests and environment: Medicines are found in the forest that can be used for a wide variety of health disorders.
