Like plants? Join the conversation on May 18th!

Do you enjoy walking in a parc or in nature? Did you have cereals or bread for breakfast? Do you have a plant in your house or office?

You may not realize it, but plants are a significant part of your life. Scientists estimate that there are around 250,000 species on this planet. Plants are the main producers of food for humans and animals. Plants improve the climate in your living room or city. It is even said they improve creativity. I could go on like this for a while, but the bottom line is that plants deserve a bit of attention. They will get it on May 18th during the Fascination of Plants Day, a worldwide event about plants.
