World Environment Day 2021 marked the start of BMC’s ‘Be A Tree Parent’ MEGA Vriksha Campaign. Instituted by the K West Ward Asst Commissioner Mr. Vishvas Mote, along with Anusha Srinivasan Iyer of Make Earth Green Again MEGA Foundation and Shaan Lalwani from Vriksha Nursery, the campaign involves and encourages societies and residents to adopt tree pits from the 348 Mumbai locations where trees had fallen in the K West Ward, post Cyclone Tauktae, and replant identified, fast-growing native tree species in those locations.
“We have just donated oxygen by planting a tree today. I do gardening every second day and it is an exhilarating experience. I am elated to see such an initiative by the BMC and Make Earth Green Again MEGA Foundation, and hope that Anusha Srinivasan Iyer and Vedant Gill will plant many more such trees, with citizens’ help,” said Dino Morea.
Besides the celebs, citizens have joined in and become the protector of the trees, thus setting forth a movement that will make a difference leaving behind green footprints.
“Receiving support of this kind from Dino Morea just feels amazing. We are all blessed to have the family’s assistance in our endeavour,” averred Vedant Gill of Make Earth Green Again MEGA Foundation.
The campaign has also seen active participation from police personnel and citizens alike. And the numbers seem to only be growing.
