Air We Breathe

Marine Plants – Their Lives Matter

Marine Plants 2

“All Life Matters”

You believe only your life and those around you are the most important. Wrong we are in this together.

Did you realise that 70% of our oxygen comes from Marine Plants, and yet we abuse the Seas, Oceans and Rivers with garbage.

Most of Earth’s oxygen comes from the tiny ocean plants – called phytoplankton.

Marine Littering

Our Garbage or Litter

We are responsible for this dumping litter on the beaches as part of our enjoyment of visiting the beach.  Cruise-ships dump their effluence and rubbish wherever they go.  Governments are responsible for dumping our trash in the Seas and Oceans, oh how did we not know they did this inhumane thing.  Destroying the Marine Plant Life of course they want to do this as it is our main source of oxygen 70% of our needs come from the Marine Plants.

Trees Their Lives Matter

Forest of Trees

On average, one tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year.

Two mature trees can provide enough oxygen for a family of four.

An acre of trees produces enough oxygen for 18 people to breathe for a year.

Not all trees produce the same amount of oxygen in the same amount of time.

Forest Trees 2

Do you get the picture now?  How many trees do we need to be able to live… because you think your life matters.

More than 20% of the world’s oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rain Forest .. think about it and deforestation that is taking place there.  Agreeing to this we are killing ourselves we will suffocate.

Deforestation is horrendous it is murder in a broad sense of Trees as their “Lives Matter” to keep the Earth Balanced”  It is also killing off all species including the people on Earth.

Grass – Their Lives Matter


A 650-square-foot area of grass produces enough oxygen to sustain an average human adult’s needs. It also improves the condition of the environment by removing pollutants from the air. Grass removes a large amount of carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air while producing large quantities of oxygen.

Grass removes a large amount of carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air while producing large quantities of oxygen. It produces more oxygen at a quicker rate than native plants due to its dense foliage and fast growth rate.

Grass 2

Grass absorbs water and pollutants from the air and filters them through its blades and roots, effectively cleaning the air and ground water. It also helps prevent erosion with its roots by acting as a binder for the soil.

Oh I can see your tiny little minds whirring away there, thinking it is all right to deforest as there is grass.  Wrong we require all Mother Earth’s Ecosystem to feed the Earth’s need for oxygen, all Animal Life and their lives matter too have to have oxygen to live.

Believe it or not Mother Earth herself requires a large amount of Oxygen to regenerate and repair the damage we have created.

I hope this gives everyone something to think about, whilst you are sat there waiting for a change to happen.

Start making the change by not abusing Mother Earth Our Earthly Mother.

    All lives matter 🙏

    We’ve worked so hard to destroy our environment, mother earth which gives us life, then gone a step further to destroy relationships amongst us forgetting we are social beings and need each other. It’s a sad reality of separation but true change begins with one individual. If only we can reconnect with nature and amongst ourselves. Embrace the oneness and nurture love. A great post.

    So agree with this post of yours and the above commenter.

    Litter is my biggest bug bear. It infuriates me. It’s everyone’s responsibility to make sure their rubbish goes in the bin. If it doesn’t, pick it up. Don’t leave it.
    Also, we have appropriate bins to do our bit. But not everyone is, because they don’t care in putting let’s say, general waste in a recycling bin,when it should go in the obvious.

    I think more could ne done when it comes to recycling as councils don’t recycle everything that could be recycled, because they say they don’t have the facilities.
    But if we try and cut down on the unnecessary plastics where we can, we are certainly doing our bit and helping the environment while we are at.

    I think supermarkets should not use plastic bags altogether. They may be reusable, but they are not when I see them in hedgerows, or people who forget to take their bags with them and so buy another. Put cotton bags at the checkout.

    🤩 wow

    I so love this

    And the catchy title. You have spoken great truth.

    As humans, we are consciously and unconsciously damaging the world’s oxygen generators.

    And it’s so sad.

    Dumping of refuse in the water bodies is one of the most common and most dangerous practice that most of humans do without knowing it’s damaging effects.

    And also deforestation. Fine, we need trees to make wood and houses and paper and all sorts.

    The problem isn’t that we are cutting down trees. The problem is that we aren’t planting new ones.

    For every tree we cut down, we should plant 2 trees back 🌱

    I so much love this article. I just came on WordPress and I saw it immediately you posted it.🤗🤗🤗🤗❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
