Plantation Day – Time to give back to Mother Nature
The temperatures all over the country are hovering around 40° C. This was unpreceded before. What is the cause for this? Who is responsible? We all know the answer. But are we, as responsible citizens doing enough? It is our utmost duty to stop degradation of the environment and what better way than planting trees?
The GIBS Social Foundation Trust(GSF) took the noble initiative of planting saplings in Bangalore to cause awareness and do their bit towards environmental conservation.As a symbolic gesture, GSF organized “Bangalore Plantation Day” on 24th April 2016 at Vijaynagar, Bangalore. The day began with planting of saplings by Mr. Ritesh Goyal – GIBS Chairman, 70+ volunteers, students from various colleges, Corporates and volunteers of WeRiseforHer in association with World Merit to emphasize the importance of planting new trees, and also aimed at fostering green practices and protecting the ones already around us.
