Native Plants Reduce Carbon Emissions: Clean Energy
Amie Comeau, Yahoo Contributor Network May 6, 2010
Native plants provide the most feasible solution to reducing carbon emissions. The largest contributor to carbon emissions is the destruction of natural habitat for industry. Carbon emission reduction is a priority for fighting climate change. Lawn care wastes more energy and water than fostering a native plant garden. Other issues with garden landscaping include the introduction of invasive species which can suffocate the diversity of species on your property.
