saving our forests - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Perhaps it would be a fitting tribute to the life work of Sir David Attenborough, as well as a much needed step to save our own souls, to ban the sale of all furniture made from new wood. Such a step would be positive shift in the economy and the way we live. Jobs in refurbishment and the antique industry would flourish - we'd gain more carpenters and artists who can work from home. As we move into more plant based diets the stems of wheat and other plant materials could be used in furniture production. We can amend the way we live, taking inspiration from other cultures. Many eat sitting on the floor, thus doing away with dinning tables and dining chairs. How about sleeping more Japanese style with a mattress that rolls up during the day - no wooden frame. We use recycled and reclaimed materials too - perhaps the harvesting of plastic from the oceans for reuse will gain financial viability as well as being the right thing to do.
We started a new brand for paper products that were made from sweeping the forests, thus it funded the prevention of forest fires.
Once the humans protected the forest by their gathering of materials to burn and build shelter from. They took what was easy to take, never harming the giant trees nor the flora they depended upon. Nature needs us to retake this role, to use what we once did for our purposes - be that in paper or furniture manufacture. Then as we take care of our forests our forests will take care of us. We are still part of nature, our place was left vacant for our return to the fold.
