In Sociedad Geográfica de las Indias we have been planting trees with Grow-Trees.com for almost 5 years on behalf of our clients travelling to India. As a travel agency we are aware of the environmental impact caused by tourism and we deeply support this organization´s way to reduce this damage. It is also an added value that our travelers appreciate enormously. We are proud to know that thanks to Grow-Trees.com, whenever someone travels with us, India becomes greener.
As we all know that Green stands for harmony and growth. We live in a world where people crave to see greenery and breathe fresh air. Mankind is experiencing the harmful effects of natural imbalance. Everybody understands the significance of greenery and hopes that imbalance should be repaired. But, the bigger question is who will take the lead. I appreciate the initiatives of your organization and through your website Grow-Trees.com, I call upon all the public at large to plant atleast one tree on an occasion of celebration. We are enjoying the fruits of trees planted by someone else. It is our turn to reciprocate. Don’t look back. Decide now. It will be a decision you will never regret. We have also planted saplings inside our premises. Our staff and students actively participate in this initiative.
Grow-Trees has been an innovative and amazing association with things getting done online so easily. I congratulate their team for helping us do our bit for the environment. The recipients of the certificates were thrilled with posts on the office intranet gushing about ‘the brilliant initiative’. Grow-Trees helped many of us at DIAGEO to adopt the habit of gifting trees to family and friends. I laud their efforts and wish them great success. It is services like theirs which will help create a world where the environment will no longer need protecting.
It has always been a part of my upbringing to give things back to nature what we get from it and the fact that modernisation is sweeping away nature day in day out always worried me. I am not sure that how much of the current nature would be available for our future generations and I fear that the way we carry mobile phones our future generations might be carrying oxygen cylinders and hence the inner side of me always wanted to do something for the nature and more importantly for future generations. The premier drawback of living a fast lifestyle in a city like Mumbai is that you want to do too many things but would never find time to do them. I first heard about Grow-Trees through our annual Joy of Giving CSR event at Firstsource. I liked the idea a lot because while the ideal way to participate would be to actually grow a tree and tend to it till maturity, we do not have such opportunities in modern urban life. So, the method of planting trees through Grow-Trees comes closest to that experience, I guess. I will introduce this concept to my little son someday, but have already done it with my pals and colleagues who have planted 100s of trees through this medium. I wish you the very best in all your efforts and hope you expand to more and more states in India and ensure that the least we give our future generation is a clean air to breathe.
