“I realize that every mature tree by photosynthesis absorbs 20kg of CO2 every year. By the same process, each tree lets out about 14kg of O2 every year.”
This is part of the environment oath taken by every member who planted a tree during this tree plantation drive. JCI Nalukody with support from Junior Jaycees, the children’s wing, organized a tree plantation drive on World Environment day. JCI took order from people for different fruit trees, by publishing on social media. Those who gave the order were supposed to have pits ready for planting trees in their compound. JCI members procured the saplings from nurseries and took them to these houses. They planted the trees together and also took an oath promoting awareness of environment protection and importance of trees.
Following the massive success of this program, JCI and MicroCharity are now extending this for the whole of June. For a contribution of Rs.222, a tree will the planted in your name in a house and will be taken care of by the owners. For those of you living in cities with no option to plant a tree in your backyard, this is a golden opportunity to make a difference to mother Earth on this Environment day.
