Setting the Example

The following excerpt is from The Everything Green Living Book by Diane Gow McDilda:

The original “tree-huggers” are thought to be the Bishnois in India, who live by a set of principles that instruct them not to kill trees or animals.  In the 1700s, the Bishnois wrapped themselves around trees to protect them from being cut down.  Although more than 300 of the Bishnois were killed, that protective act later became a successful way to spare trees, and it continues today.
