Help Groot Save The Earth

Yesterday was Earth Day and I completely forgot to post an earth related post.

Last March I showed off three of my 1/1 wood parallels of Cutch.  You can revisit that post here.  I also posted them on Twitter yesterday @CollectingCutch
I called the post "I Am Groot" to reference the tree like Guardian of the Galaxy famous in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Since that post I have added a few more to the collection, but wanted to show off this 2013 Gypsy Queen mini as part of a timetable I want to establish regarding our planet.

Many people have been stuck in doors for several weeks now and while I am certain that many are not watching Earth saving documentaries, I hope that someone that reads this may feel inclined to watch the documentary Guardians of the Amazon, now streaming on Hulu.

From 2014-2018 the world saw 120 million hectares of tree cover get lost, while only 30 million hectares are under restoration at this time.  An article found on the World Resource Institute provides details of the deforestation of the world and the impact it will have on weather, economics, and the ecology of many species in the world if things don't get better.

The equivalent of three soccer fields are deforested EVERY MINUTE in the Amazon.

Please ♻ and reuse any items you can.  The Earth needs you.


  1. Wood cards are cool.

    3 soccer fields every minute?! Geez.

  2. This year I started teaching a new elective called Service Learning and my class was in charge of picking up all of the school's recycling bins. They did a huge research project on it and a lot of them were blown away by how we're killing the planet.
