Plants at risk too.

https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/cactus-candy. Here is and article to show people either plant or animal we as individuals need to be responsible of the foods we eat. We need to know how sustainable the things we buy really are. I understand that a lot of people are concerned about the animals. But plants are at risk as well if we don't pay attention.

Your point is incredibly valid, though I'd say that article is more of an example of veganism not actually being healthy if people eat refined sugar and candy, etc.. It's very true that a lot of plantlife has been and is victimized and threatened unfortunately.

It's important to be conscientious about whatever you eat, and it is easier said than done of course because you either have to grow it yourself wisely, or get it from others who grow it whom you can converse with and make sure they have worthwhile practices and don't use detrimental or toxic products or take advantage of others or nature, etc.. also why the Fair Trade movement and things like that are gaining popularity. I think if we look there are a lot of examples of plants becoming rare or near extinction because of the lack of consciousness from people. but humans also do and can play a role in restoring and assisting nature too. If we weren't here much of it would never need restoring or assistance, but all in all I think if we as populations grow and become more enlightened we can ultimately be a great blessing to nature.. that's one of the main reasons I think we are here for.. it's weird to think about how much different nature there is though, and how we can orchestrate it and I can't really say if we were ever supposed to reorganize or redecorate things too much lol but since we are already at the point of having destroyed much of it all we can do is look to the present and future and try to feed the Earth's evolution with a part of our own souls and hearts

I very much agree with you! There's 2 trees I can think of off the top of my head humans saved from natural extinction. The avocado and ginko tree. There natural seed dispersing animal as long been extinct. I just have a soft spot for succulents. and it fires me up to see people ruin,and extort the gifts the earth lent to us. Because now we do know better. Just so many people choose not to. When we had that long government shut down a bunch of people went into parks and trashed them destroying 200+ year old vegetation simply because they could. I wish I could kick them all in the head because there dumb! People often take endangered plants from the wild all the time an sell them. Soon those plants won't be around. It takes 2 years for beef cattle birth to plate. It often takes 100+ years for some of these plants to even become noticeable. I have growing from seed, a Joshua tree. It's 4 year's old and about 4" tall. I have a barrel cactus that's over 15 years old. It's about the size of a softball.https://www.wausaudailyherald.com/st...on/3428841002/. This is a cool article. For me it's very inspiring. I just figured out how to copy and paste

I care a lot about plants, and it's actually one of many reasons why I am vegetarian. Lots of rainforests are destroyed so people can grow beans that end up in the farms so there can be beef, pork, and chicken on the plate. This means a whole library of plant life and trees are destroyed and going extinct. We cannot avoid not having an impact but reducing it, and eliminating certain practices, is key..

When I grew up we had fruit trees, bushes, and many veggies in the garden. Plants are beautiful and I care a lot. I don't pick flowers and never step on them either. When I see tree trunks cut or an area of forest cut down it breaks my heart. If I'm in a neighbourhood with no or few trees, and see people's ''gardens'' being just grass and stone it makes me at unease. Not only because the plants provide homes for animals, but also because plants are beautiful by themselves. I could stare at on old tree or the details of a cabbage plant for hours. It is truly magnificent. But we can't avoid not partaking in the web of life, so what is left to do for me is to reduce harm done..

a lot of land is cleared for people to eat as well, but we have to eat something. I feel very fortunate to live where I do. Where nature is all around me. Nature and farm's do co exist. I know the gardens you mentioned. I don't care for them either. But if you look for it you can find beauty in anything if nature made it that way. I have a couple gardens myself. One in a public area for the world to see. Another in my back yard. I like to plant native plants in my area.
