Environment - resources & discussion

-- Quote of the Day --


“…There are ions in nature, negative ions are actually the good ones. You know when you go outside after a rain and there is this feeling in the air – that is the negative ions. …And you know when you walk across the carpet and you get a shock? Well, that is positive ions. When you walk on a carpet of natural materials, you won’t get that effect. …What else brings negative ions? - Water features and plants. …Sweet Briar Nature Center developed the butterfly house to educate people about the destruction of the rain forest and our natural habitat. …What few people realize is that butterflies will need certain plants to feed from… and certain plants for laying their eggs on. They are very specific as to the species… so if the habitat is severely decreased, that butterfly will not survive.”



~ Maureen Calamia 

Today's quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio show episode that aired back on – March 13 - titled: Sweetbriar Nature Center & Green Design
