PLANET & CO.

Just like you, I am a LIVING entity. 

Just like you, I BREATHE. 

Just like you, I AM.

- PLANET EARTH

WHAT IS PLANET EARTH?

A COLOURFUL & THINKING PIECE OF ART

Earth is the third planet from the Sun, and the only astronomical object known to harbour life. According to radiometric dating and other sources of evidence, Earth formed over 4.5 billion years ago. Earth doesn't need us to be, but WE need her in order to exist.

Some Facts about Earth:

1. More than 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water

2. Over 70% of our planet's oxygen is produced by the oceans

3. Only about 5% of the oceans have been explored

4. Earth doesn’t take 24 hours to rotate on its Axis, but 23h 56 mins 4"

5. Earth is beautiful.
