13 July, 2021

Sand Grains Foundation undertook a mass tree plantation drive, to take their goal of conserving natural resources and ensuring environmental sustainability further. In sync with this thought, 1000 trees were planted by the team in Kolkata’s New Town at NKDA Green Verge No. 3 on July 13, 2021.

Mr. Debashis Sen, Chairman HIDCO / NDITA, Additional Chief Secretary, Government of West Bengal and Mr. Nick Low, British Deputy High Commissioner, Kolkata graced the occasion amidst the presence of Mr. Manish Bhartia, Director, Sand Grains Foundation.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Debashis Sen said, “We believe that tree plantation is a great way forward towards sustainable living. We are happy to collaborate with Sand Grains Foundation in enhancing the green cover of Kolkata. New Town, being a platinum-rated green city, has set a target of 10,000 plantations this year, and this association would go a long way in achieving this goal.”

Mr. Nick Low, British Deputy High Commissioner to Kolkata expressed, “I appreciate this initiative of tree plantation by Sand Grains Foundation and the efforts undertaken by them to contribute towards a carbon-free, clean and green environment. There is a need to increase the green cover by arresting carbon emissions which involve protecting and restoring nature on an unprecedented scale. We need to be concerned about rising earth’s temperature, leading to climate change, thus playing havoc with humanity, globally. There needs to be a change in the way we look at our planet earth.”

Sand Grains Foundation is thoroughly committed to helping offset carbon emissions by planting and nurturing trees and promoting the use of renewable energy resources. Hari Mitti Foundation, with a vision to build eco-friendly urban plantations and reconnect with the soil, helped take this objective one step ahead.

Sand Grains Foundation takes active initiatives to ensure environment sustainability, ecological balance, protection of flora and fauna, animal welfare, agroforestry, conservation of natural resources and maintaining the quality of soil, air and water.
