Approximately 45% of India’s land is degraded primarily due to deforestation, unsustainable agricultural practices, mining and excessive groundwater extraction. More than 2/3rds of this can be regenerated. In this changing time, with rise in carbon emissions, it is vital that we conserve trees. Grow Trees is a web enabled initiative that offers both individuals and corporates the opportunity to plant trees and/or gift trees and obtain eTree certificates for the nobel cause. Individuals can plant trees with just a few clicks and can gift the tress along with their personal message to celebrate festivals, birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions. Individuals can send several e-greetings at once, schedule automatic e-greeting deliveries on future dates and upload a picture or a logo to make the greeting even more personal and create a lifetime account to view one’s complete gifting history and set up reminders. Plantings are audited by third party auditors to ensure transparency and accountability.
We plant trees on behalf of our customers in the public lands like the wildlife sanctuaries. We have our own in-house nursery where we keep our saplings.
We aim to generate livelihood for the local community who are trained to plant the saplings, water them regularly and look after each sapling as their own. The local community is paid for their labour and also uses the by-products of the plants in terms of fruits, fodder etc that provides them additional income.
