Replacement of all decorative plants with evergreen fruitful plants
I think it is a great waste when our planet is facing such massive pollution, that people and organizations use merely decorative plants in their gardens, plots or parks. Such plants may not have leaves during the whole year which means they aren't cleaning the air during the whole year. These plants are, generaly, not producing anything edible or useful. How good it would be if people cultivated evergreen fruit bearing plants only, or mostly, even if it is for an aesthetical purpose? Around the Mediteranean sea, for example, carob trees and olive trees are evergreen and produce very useful fruits with economical value. Imagine a school replace all its acacias with carob trees. Students could pick up carob and the school would sell it. Then students would be let to propose and choose different projects for the school or community financed by the money from the carob harvest.
