Have you ever taken a close look at the greens around you? The color of new sprouts, the hue of leaves, the green bathed in direct sunlight, and the green concealed in shadows. There are various shades of green on this planet, a world crafted from the fusion of blues and greens, each existing without a unified name, residing solely in our memories. Today, let me recommend a selection of JOTO's green products while we explore the theme of green.

When we think of green, environmental conservation might be the first thing that comes to mind. We have only one Earth, and in the face of extreme climate conditions, we must ponder how to coexist harmoniously with all living things in this "Anthropocene" era, a topic that scientists continually investigate.

You've probably heard of a "century," but did you know that "era" and "epoch" have different meanings for geologists? The largest time unit in geological chronology is called an "eon" (we are presently in the Phanerozoic eon). Below eons are "eras" (we are currently in the Cenozoic era), below eras are "periods" (you may have heard of the Jurassic period), and below periods are "epochs" (we are currently in the Holocene epoch).

The term "Anthropocene" refers to a geological epoch not yet officially named, first proposed by Nobel laureate and Dutch atmospheric chemist Paul Crutzen in 2000. It suggests that human activities have had a profound impact on the Earth, enough to establish a new geological era. In other words, since the Industrial Revolution, our influence on the planet has been so significant that we can say Earth's geology has reached a state distinguishable from the previous epoch.

One unmistakable geological signal of human activity is the rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Many geologists believe that the "Anthropocene" began with the rise of agriculture, marking the point at which human activities irrevocably altered the Earth.

How should we reevaluate our relationship with the Earth? In 1972, James Lovelock proposed the famous "Gaia hypothesis," suggesting that the entire surface of the Earth, including all life (the biosphere), constitutes a self-regulating entity. This means that after the interaction between life and the environment, Earth becomes a living entity. While this hypothesis remains just that—a hypothesis—it offers a perspective on how we might reimagine the relationship between humans and the Earth, prompting us to rethink how we treat the environment we call home.
