The benefits of green

There is no doubt: urban forestation would bring benefits of all kinds to everyone. For this reason the ambitious project of MyPlant could have a great and positive impact on a city like Milan.
The reasons?
Increasing the green in the city means first of all drastically reducing CO2 to the atmosphere, but also limiting the smog that, in metropolises like Milan, are problems of today and of serious importance.
The consequences would have a positive effect on citizens who would enjoy less hot climates in the summer, while at the same time benefiting from better health.
The increase of the urban greenery and the project of the Bosco di Myplant are part of the rest of a wider plan of Government of the territory that aims to redesign a large part of the urban greenery starting from the parks already present passing through urban courtyards, squares, ex - railways, parking lots and much more.
And if today there are around 5.5 million trees in the area, thinking of planting another 3 million, it would mean adding a significant contribution to the health of the citizen and the well-being of the territory.

 

In detail, Il Bosco di Myplant will be located in the Velodrome area of Parco Nord in Milan and will be made possible thanks to the contribution of the companies that will participate in the next edition of Myplant & Garden at Fiera Milano Rho from 26 to 28 February 2020.

Once fully grown, the Bosco di Myplant, will be able to absorb 50000 kg of CO2 which is equal to the emissions generated annually by 7 Italian citizens, 315,000 km traveled by car or the life cycle of 100,000 bottles of water.

 

Social commitment

Thanks to Myplant Gardens, also a design competition held every year at the show, It is possible give ample space to social issues and projects dedicated to outdoor areas of structures dedicated to the protection or care for persons in medical or social difficulties. After the intervention in favor of Dynamo Camp of Pistoia in 2018 and the construction of an open-air gym in Monza (the Garden of Sport Therapy) in September 2019, in 2020 the Court Garden will be inaugurated, built at CasArchè, a community for mothers-children in Quarto Oggiaro, Milan.

 

Reuse #LegnoUrbano

Current and very important topic is the treatment and reuse of trees which, for various reasons, must be slaughtered in the city (age, illness, instability, territorial planning, periodic renewal, etc.)
On the occasion of World Tree Day, on November 21st, Myplant, in collaboration with Assofloro and Rete clima, will take over the recovery and transport of some recently felled trees to process them and present them as central elements within the VI edition of MyPlant & Garden of 26-28 February 2020.
