Sunday, 5th June 2016, was World Environment Day. It has been celebrated since 1973 in order to raise the global awareness about the importance of the healthy and green environment in human lives, to solve the environmental issues by implementing some positive environmental actions as well as to make aware common public worldwide that everyone is responsible for saving his environment and not only somebody, government or organizations working for it.
We at Hearts@work a Zenitex Initiative are continuously working in this direction of Environmental Protection. Sunday, 5th June 2016 too, we celebrated the “World Environment Day” in a unique way. As pledged, we would be planting trees throughout the year wherever, we will find place for planting and people who are willing to take care of the trees for at least six months to one year until the young plants are strong enough to take care of themselves on their own. To inaugurate the Campaign of “Clean India – Green India”, Hearts@work team led by Mr. Viral S. Desai, Founder of Hearts@work and CEO of Zenitex, along with Committee Members of Gateway Ladies Club, Surat, namely Mrs. Yashaswiniben Jariwala, Mrs. Jugesh Kohli and Mrs. Anju Sethi, visited “Vrundavan Ranchhoddas Popawala Children Home” in Surat. The beautiful campus of the Children Home was chosen as the venue of the inauguration of the campaign. There, along with the kids of the Children Home, 175 trees were planted. During the interaction, the children there were found to be very well mannered, energetic and passionate.
Since, children are the future and the future is for them, it was an apt location wherein, the kids got involved enthusiastically and wholeheartedly in the tree planting programme. Moreover, they pledged their support and promised that they will take care of these plants and see them grow in to full grown trees.
World Environment Day annual celebration campaign was started worldwide to address the huge environmental issues like wastage of food, deforestation, increasing global warming, extinction of fossil fuels, focusing on forest management, reducing greenhouse effects, promoting bio-fuels production by planting on degraded lands, use of hydro-power to enhance electricity production, encourage common public to use solar energy and production through solar sources, developing new drainage systems and promoting mangroves restoration in order to get prevented from flooding and erosion and other ways of environmental protection.
It is celebrated to spread awareness amongst common public about the environmental issues, encourage common people from different society and communities to actively participate and become an active agent in developing environmental safety measures, let them know that community is very essential to inhibit negative changes towards the environmental issues and encourage people to make their nearby surroundings safe and clean to enjoy safer, clean and more prosperous future.
We at Hearts@work and Zenitex, call upon all responsible citizens to come and “Join us to a true commitment to our environment – Join us in the serenity of leaving to our children a planet in equilibrium” – “Join the race to make the world a better place”.
