Reduce Global Warming: Plant a TREE

During photosynthesis, trees/plants absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. They are an integral part of the natural atmospheric exchange cycle on Earth. But there are too few of them to fully counter the increases in carbon dioxide caused by automobile traffic, manufacturing and other human activities. A single tree will absorb approximately one ton of carbon dioxide during its lifetime.

Indoor plant/potted plants
Plants act as natural oxygen generators which means they can improve the air quality of our home. However, not all plants are suitable as potted plants or to be placed indoor. Below website shows picture and name of plants suitable to plant indoor under Malaysia climate:

According to Dr Abd Kalam, India ex-President, one house at least need to plant 3 trees in order for us to save to earth. Hmm.... but lets plant more, just in case to cover those who are not planting...
