Give Me Trees Trust

Peepal Baba, the founder of the Give Me Trees Trust has been planting trees since he was in class 4, he planted so many trees under the project Give Me Trees at school and college level that later he formed the trust of the same name to continue the noble cause. To date Give Me Trees Trust has planted and preserved more than 2 crore trees. With more than 11,000 volunteers in India, this organization has many hands to support mother earth. This organization is based in Mayur Vihar, Delhi. This organization promotes natural farming techniques and Peepal Baba also gives talks on organic farming.  Give me trees Trust has become the largest voluntary tree-planting movement in India

 

Say Trees

Say Trees is a group of environment protection enthusiasts and the NGO is based in Bengaluru. This organization is bringing saplings outside the school with a motto of inculcating the environmental values in students and they wish to cover a green belt on the outskirts of the city. They also tie up with organizations to bring the change.

 

Green Yatra

Green Yatra is dedicated to the protection and conservation of nature and humanity. Their main objective is to create a green environment for the future generation and the team works dedicatedly from Maharastra and the team is growing steadily with many more activities than tree plantation such as sustainable solutions, water footprint. This team pledges to plant 10 crores plants by 2025 in the Pedh Lagao campaign.

 

Sankalptaru

Sankalptaru's mission is to create a healthy and green environment for the future and fill the land with trees. They also promote extensive agricultural activities across the nation. With each sapling, they tend to bring change to the nation. The unique system of purchasing a sapling and seeing it get to grow at the place wished for is a transparent process for all the contributors. Apurva Bhandhari is the founder and has an excellent core team that handles all the processes well.

 

Forest Creators

Forest Creators are looking for massive change and plan for afforestation to build green earth. They believe in creating the balance on the land and wish to have factories and also a carpet for trees. With mentor Shri. Shubhendu Sharma of Afforestt the Myawaki Forest of 1500 trees was created in 2014 and now there is no looking back. This team has taken many such projects and completed them well in time.

These organizations are doing extensive work for building the green environment and the future we all wish for. If we wish to be part of the change but if one cannot work as a volunteer due to various reasons

  • Lack of time due to the hustle-bustle of life
  • Voluntary activities taking place far away from home.
  • Less awareness of environmental groups.
  • Not involvement at the ground level

 

Then donating to such a cause can make us part of such noble initiatives. Making a small contribution to the environment is like giving back to Mother Earth.

All the titles have the respective links of the NGOs. This post is only for awareness purposes, we do not gain any monetary benefits out of this.

This blog post is a part of #CauseAChatter at Blogchatter, where we are writing on #EnvironmentalTalks and pledge to spread awareness among our readers and wish to see the change in the future.

To understand the restoration of the environment and how a common person like us can be part of it, we are hosting the EnvironmentalTalks on 7th June on Instagram and Environmentalist, Peepal Baba will explain to us the practices to follow for a green environment.
