Bit by Bit, China is Stopping Deforestation

Sometimes a small bit of news is great news.

China has recovered about 1.6% of areas that had been deforested. In a country that was rapidly scaling towards mass destruction of our forests, this is progress.

As we know, trees help protect our planet. When we breathe out, we breathe carbon dioxide and the tress take it in from our bodies and from the atmosphere. They actually hold it within their trunks until they die, when the release it into the atmosphere again. So if you deforest, you are basically releasing carbon dioxide en masse. That is a large part of the reason why our earth is heating up.Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 1.43.21 PM.pngSome of you may shrug your shoulders, 1.6 percent? Why does that really matter?

When you’re dealing with a country that has 1 billion people, it certainly does matter. How can you control the habits and behaviors of such a large amount of people? The bottom line is it’s admirable to see progress.Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 1.43.11 PM.png

Today you might have made one small positive step of progress in a challenge you’re facing.

Stop for a moment, please…

Celebrate it, and more progress will come.
