In the spirit of Earth Day, it is important to remember why plants are good for the environment. Plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen, which cleans the air. Plants release nutrients to keep the soil fertile. Plants filter water through soil and roots. Plants help protect soil from erosion with their foliage and deep roots.
