Day 259 of our Green Year: Honouring With Trees

Last month, a family member of Layla's passed away. This is hard for anyone to go through, but you can use this tragic situation to do something green. On the same note, you can also honor their memory with something that will live on, possibly longer than you will.

It is honoring someone you care about, alive or dead, with a tree. This spring, to honor the family member that died, we are planting a tree at our ranch. Over time, this tree will grow and prosper and serve as a reminder of that person's life and the affect it had on all of us.

While that tree serves as a memory of that person, it also helps take CO2 out of the air and replace it with oxygen. In many ways, you are honoring the person you cared about and creating life (oxygen) through the planting of the tree.
