Plants in our life

Plants are popping up everywhere in our lives. They provide us with food and fuel, essential substances for cosmetics and medicines, fibres for clothing, etc. How can we deal with this plant richness in a sustainable way? Why do we wear almost exclusively cotton clothing when there are so many other textile fibres? It's food for thought about the sustainable use of plants. 

For whom? 1st and 2nd degree SE
