World Planting Day

On International Plant Appreciation Day on April 13, plant lovers throughout the world get together to express their appreciation for these green oxygen machines. To properly honor this natural gift, the event also discusses the myriad benefits plants provide to the environment, such as improving air quality, creating small wildlife habitats, and making dwellings more visually appealing. Furthermore, this day occurs in spring, which is the prime tree and plant growing season. With 66% of U.S. houses already having at least one houseplant and an increasing number of worldwide families following suit, we are well on our way to a plant-e-full existence of greenery and clean(er) living.
