The Environmental Conservation Mulch
Reading online (http://www.conserve-energy-future.com/methods-and-importance-of-environmental-conservation.php) this defintion, it became very clear that Pine Straw is a mulch that meets this defenition.
So, What Exactly is Environmental Conservation?
There is much to do when it comes to rebuilding and protecting what’s left of natural resources and the biodiversity within our ecosystems. Environmental conservation is an umbrella term that defines anything we do to protect our planet and conserve its natural resources so that every living thing can have an improved quality of life. The forests that provide Longleaf Pine Needles produce clean air, clean water and countless wildlife benefits.
Environmental conservation comes in many forms and reminds us to be mindful of daily choices. No matter how busy your life may be, it remains fairly easy to make small, yet necessary, changes for the good of the Earth. If we all took little steps, we would make our way towards major progress. This can be achieved by paying more attention to what we buy and not using resources unnecessarily. Pine Straw Mulch is both renewable and substainable. Renewable because the pine needles are naturally replenised by the falling of new pine needles annually or bi-annually. Substainable becuase the long leaf pine forest eco-system maintains is owns viability and as demand for Pine Straw increases as its introduced into more northern climates, the need for more longleaf pine forest acreagae will be required to substain the need for more pine straw. Long Leaf Pine forest eco-systems are one of the most biologically diverse on the plant.
The environment is vital to our well-being and every element should be protected.
Consider every part of the environment, including the trees, the oceans and the soil. The trees that help us to breathe also isolate greenhouse gases that would cause the Earth to heat up more quickly. They hold soil in place and naturally filter water that has been absorbed into the ground.
Finally, the soil stands as its own supporter of life by acting as a supplier of food and a filter of water. Soil that is of good quality produces crops that feed humans and animals. Plants and flowers sprout up from the ground through the soil, helping to regulate our climate. Most of nature’s water isn’t made for human consumption, but soil also stores groundwater and filters it, making it safe for drinking.
The trees, the seas, and the ground; these three elements are necessary for our existence, and there are still more parts of nature that we need to protect. This is why there are a large number of conservationists, many of which have dedicated themselves to protecting specific causes. No trees are destoyed to supply Pine Straw, actually, more trees are planted to provide Pine Straw.
If every household incorporated the concepts of sustainable living by using less and conserving more, the positive impact would be immeasurable.
Help to replenish what is being taken away by giving back to the Earth. Use Pine Straw as your mulch of choice to support the environment.
Deforestation continues to be a major environmental issue. Many forests are losing countless acres of valuable trees, and because these trees are destroyed, the greenhouse gases they were storing go back into the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. Animals and people lose their food supply and homes, and the economic status of a region can also change because less forests often leads to less employment opportunities in the area.
Planting trees is a way to give back because it aids in the restoration of homes for wildlife, food sources, and medicinal properties that only the trees provide. As trees grow, they protect soil from harsh weather conditions and protect us from excess carbon dioxide, enabling us to live longer and more comfortably.
As a consumer you can make the decision to use Pine Straw in your landscaping, all the while helping the USDA with their Long Leaf Pine Restoration Initative to re-establish the Longleaf Pine Tree across its historic range.
