Thanksgiving dinners take weeks to plan, hours to prepare and roughly 15 minutes to consume. The average half-time show during a football game lasts 15 minutes…

This is not a coincidence.

Consider getting out of the kitchen and into the yard: Celebrate Thanksgiving by planting a tree. It may seem trivial at first, but it’s one of the simplest things we can do to help nature. Trees absorb about 26 pounds of carbon dioxide each year and provide enough oxygen a family of four may need in a year to survive.

Invite your neighbors for a joint celebration and multiply the good effect. Have a green and Happy Thanksgiving!
