What would happen if there was no more grass?
Seriously, I mean,
What would happen?
It would start with “oh it’s just one bit” and then both of them would think that.
And soon the whole street turns their lawn into a rock garden because its “easier” and because it “looks just as good”
And then it would become a trend, and people all over the world would take up their grass
They’d replace it with plastic, they’d replace it with carpet
They’d put in pools and they’d expand their deck
And it would be fine
Because there are still trees
And the companies plant more trees with this purchase…
that comes wrapped in plastic.
But they still plant the trees.
And there are still gardens
And there are still flowers.
And there are still farms and forests and oceans.
They’re saving them as I buy this soap,
They’re planting more when I buy this app,
They’re doing it.
But that’s how this whole mess started.
By them starting it
And they’re continuing it
And it’s their fault, not mine
Because I didn’t take up my grass first
Because I saw it on the news and my neighbours did it
Because I thought it would still be okay with the forests and gardens.
But they didn’t know.
They didn’t know how important the grass was too.
They didn’t know that it’s not just a pain-in-the-ass or a weed you must trim
They thought it was just grass.
And that there was enough of it.
And that their decision didn’t impact the whole world.
But they were wrong.
And they were stupid.
And they didn’t think about the bigger picture.
And while maybe it was just a trend
it was earth.
And it was plant.
And it was needed.
So don’t think that it’s not. Or you’re not.
We need the grass, and don’t you forget it.
