Join me to plant 15,000 trees across Bangalore

I am Vandana Gupta, a homemaker living in Bangalore for the past 15 years. Bangalore has been known as "The Garden City" with its unbelievably pleasant weather throughout the year, and a green haven for decades. But over the years things have changed drastically, not only in Bangalore but throughout the world. And words like global warming, deforestation, reforestation, eco-system etc are a common language.

Instead of cribbing and complaining, I decided to take a stand on this and started the project The Green Revolution, where I decided to plant 10 Lakh trees in and around Bangalore. This initiative was also inspired by me attending Self-Expression and Leadership Program, where I was required to take up a social responsibility that would touch, move and inspire others.

As the first phase of the bigger campaign, I will be planting 15,000 trees. In the last 3 months (June to August 2016) I planted 2000 trees/saplings in lands provided by friends and in other places, like Doddaballapur, Bangalore.

According to the US department of Agriculture one acre of forest absorbs six ton of carbon dioxide and puts out four ton of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people. Trees, shrubs, and turf also filter air by removing dust and absorbing other pollutants like carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.

With this is mind my future planning is to create patches of forest on waste lands and in colonies which will become lungs of that area. Children are the future, and for their future to be safe and healthy, they need to love and respect trees and the environment. And there is no other better way to show our love for Mother Earth than planting trees. So 150 schools have been identified where children will be involved in planting trees and taking care of them.

There are other projects in the pipeline too, like planting trees on road meridians, and creating pasture land for roaming cows. My Guruji always said, "Instead of being a Consumer always, be a Contributor".

All this and more is not possible without  the support and help of people who want to Contribute to society and do their bit towards making the world a better place to live in.
