200 Saplings planted at Green Verge 5, New Town, Kolkata

23 Jan, 2023

At Sand Grains Foundation, we recently conducted a tree plantation drive ’41 Shades of Green’ to inaugurate the new Green Verge 5 (Action Area 1B) at New Town, Kolkata.

The event was held in association with the Bengal Chapter of Harley Owners Group and 41 Clubs of India, an organization working to serve the needy and underprivileged. 200 saplings were planted to further our cause to offset carbon emissions and live sustainably in harmony with nature.

We have always fostered sensitivity towards our resources – natural and human. Our environmental program entails achieving Net Zero by 2030. The project revolves around offsetting carbon emissions by planting and nurturing trees thereby aiding the development and use of renewable energy resources. We aim to plant 25,000 trees by 2025 - 2026 and have taken various other measures for reducing carbon emissions and minimizing our footprint on the planet. On the social development front, unleashing human potential through education and providing medical and developmental aid to backward populations has featured among our priorities.

Mr. Sanjay Singh, Director, Sand Grains Foundation, said, “It gives us immense pride and pleasure to inaugurate the new Green Verge and put another foot forward to increase the green cover of Kolkata. Sand Grains Foundation is committed to arresting carbon emissions which involve protecting and restoring nature on a never-before scale.”

The event saw an overwhelmingly positive response from all the participants as well as the residents from the nearby precincts.
