Trees are our closest relatives. What we exhale, they inhale. This is a constant relationship that no one can afford to live without.

Have you noticed that the summers are getting hotter every year? Rains are untimely, floods and droughts are more common.

The increasing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere are affecting our environment. Just about everything we do adds to this, driving, using computers, cooling cars and offices. We as a generation are now more aware and concerned about this than ever before.

An average urban dweller's carbon footprint is around 4,000 kilos per year. A tree offsets only about 20 kilos of CO2 from the atmosphere per year.

As individuals, we need to do something to reduce our carbon footprint. The easiest, simplest and most effective solution is to plant trees. Unfortunately, due to hectic urban lifestyles, you may not find the space or time to plant trees and nurture them.

This June, for World Environment Day, we are offering an opportunity for you to participate in this much needed endeavor.

Project GreenHands will plant trees on your behalf. You can know the exact location of the trees along with the details of the farmer who will plant and take care of them. All you need to do is donate Rs.50/- (approx. $1) per sapling.

Every single tree counts. A green world – together let’s make it happen!
