What do a glass of water you drink, the notebook you use to scribble down lecture notes on, the pill you take as medicine, and the wooden chopping board in your kitchen have in common? The answer is an obvious one but many of us may not be able to guess it right. The answer is that all the above-mentioned are connected to forests, one way or another. Without forests, many luxuries we enjoy in our day-to-day life – including the air we breathe and the water we drink – would not have been afforded to us. Forests play a vital role in our life and unfortunately, many of us are blissfully ignorant of how pivotal the wellbeing of forests to our lives is.
