World Environment Day Celebrations at Isha Project GreenHands
On World Environment Day, while Isha Volunteers all over the world were campaigning for a ban on single-use plastic to beat plastic pollution, another kind of environmental activity was happening on the home grounds - the tree planting season launch of Isha Project GreenHands (PGH) in Tamil Nadu!
PGH has planned to raise 4 million saplings through its 35 Isha Nurseries across the state this year. These will be distributed to people for plantation.
Sapling distribution, awareness rallies by school children, plantation of saplings and many such events were conducted in 27 locations such as Bannari, Bhavani Sagar, Chengalpet, Chamraj Nagar, Chennai, Cuddalore, Erode, Gobichettipalayam, Hasanur, Kallakurichi, Kanchipuram, Karur, Madurai, Namakkal, Neyveli, Pondicherry, Pulinjur, Thanjavur, Tirunelveli, Tiruppur, Srivaikundam, Thiruvarur, Trichy, and Villupuram to celebrate World Environment Day.
The United Nations Environment’s theme of Beat Plastic Pollution was highlighted in every event, where people of all ages and from all walks of life took an oath to switch to eco-friendly products and avoid plastic.
The Launch of PGH Online Campaign for Tree Planting
Today, almost everyone realizes the importance of planting trees. But in reality, city-dwellers do not have resources in terms of space or time to plant them.
To enable people to realize their tree-planting dreams, PGH has launched an online tree-planting campaign
