Environment Care Group - Annual Report 2014

Reason of Origin

In our fast-paced world we tend to forget about the environment around us. Video games and television can distract us from the beauty of nature outside our doors. But just because we don’t often notice it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t care about the deteriorating environment. Hence this team `Environmental Care Group` is launched.

Our Initiatives - SMS - A - Sapling

SMS A Sapling is a brain child of Mr. Tirupathaiah. This project was aimed at Chennai residents who wish to plant trees in their houses, but don’t know where to procure the saplings, how to plant and maintain them. Under this initiative, whoever sends an SMS GREEN to us @ 8754045124, will get a sapling for free. For each SMS that we receive, we call back them, get their address, advise them on the types of trees and distribute it to them for free.


Launched on 26th July 2009 by Mr.Naresh Gupta Chief Election Commissioner @ Queen Marry college Chennai.
