The idea of Grow Trees has been widely appreciated by those whom I have gifted these too. They are friends, well wishers and associates from the Media, Marketing, Advertising and Financial Services community, within India and around the world. The idea of planting a tree in their name, gives them satisfaction, in returning something to nature. This is one of the finest gifts one can offer to anyone you care for.
“The most impressive part about the entire planting programme onsite was the involvement and ownership of this initiative by the local community. Their acknowledgement of the jungle being the abode of the wild and us humans in a way being trespassers, the need for planting trees for immediate livelihood and long term sustenance and their healthy approach to sharing the wealth from this community resource, was indeed very reassuring. Their participation in the planting activity and sharing of myriad encounters with the wild, made my own planting experience much more richer and memorable”
Vodafone India has partnered with Grow-Trees.com for India’s first private initiative to develop a wildlife corridor between Kanha and Pench national parks. 300,000 trees will be planted across 100 hectares of forest land over 3 years. To kick start this initiative, the Vodafone team travelled to Rata village, located on the outskirts of Kanha national park along with representatives from Grow-Trees.com and their on-ground partner, Foundation of Ecological Society (FES). With this unique project, Vodafone India will be able to offset the33 million kg of carbon footprint generated by its offices every year for 3-years. In addition, it will support livelihood generation for local communities, enable reforestation and facilitate habitat connectivity in tiger breeding areas. This is a win-win-win proposition for all - the organisation, the community and the environment, exemplifying the true spirit of sustainability.
A tree for the birthday! What can be more precious than this gift that helps our environs? One, that can be remembered for generations to come. As an environmentally responsible organisation, UAE Exchange immediately identified an opportunity to bring in a smile to the future generations in this thought. We found it novel to wish our employees a truly healthy life by planting a tree in their name on their birthdays. We are delighted at your concept of Grow-Trees that makes a difference to the world. We wish all success to each of your noble endeavours.
When we at Lotus Greens went looking out for an agency to help us with our green plantation drive campaign in October last year, we didn't have to look far. Grow-Trees not only helped us in planting 21,000 trees on the periphery of the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Alwar in the ecologically fragile Aravalli Hills, it also ensured positive outcome from the entire exercise.
By involving the local community - about 300 villages in the vicinity of the reserve - in the plantation drive, Grow-Trees succeeded in making the villagers important stakeholders in ensuring the life and longevity of the planted trees. As the villagers were involved in planting the trees, it is natural that they would ensure its safe nurturing and nourishment till the trees are past the vulnerable stage. Also, in the ripeness of time, once the trees grow to maturity, they would act as an ideal restorative to the ecologically fragile region and greatly benefit the local population.
We look forward to many more chances of association and collaboration between Lotus Greens and Grow-Trees in the future. Its impressive credentials and vast experience in carrying out hundreds of plantation drives and green initiatives make Grow-Trees an obvious choice and partner to tie up with for anyone keen on pursuing environmental and green initiatives.
