Protect Our Breath

environment, oxygen, air, forests, ecology, deforestation

We need our forests to breathe. Accord­ing to Amer­i­can Forests, two mature trees pro­vide enough oxy­gen for one per­son to breathe over the course of a year. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Oh, wait. Forests also improve our health by remov­ing dust, ash, pollen, and smoke. Check out oth­er for­est facts and spread the word. As we work to pro­tect our forests, we also need to pay atten­tion to the safe­ty con­di­tions of our for­est work­ers who suf­fer nine times the fatal­i­ties of the gen­er­al US work pop­u­la­tion.
