Hearts@work – Zenitex and Gateway Ladies Club, Surat, Celebrated World Environment Day 2016 In A Distinctive Way

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”.

A few refreshing and encouraging quotes for all readers to change their modes to Action Mode:

  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”. – Margaret Mead
  • “We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment”. – Margaret Mead
  • “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed”. – Mahatma Gandhi
  • “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another”. – Mahatma Gandhi

ZENITEX – HEARTS@WORK CELEBRATE EARTH DAY 2016 BY LAUNCHING GREEN INITIATIVE OF PLANTING 100,000 TREES IN A YEAR

Today leaders from 160 countries will officially sign the Paris Climate Agreement on Earth Day 2016.

The deal was thrashed out in Paris last December in order to stem global warming. 

The signing makes this year’s Earth Day one of the most important in years, and the organisers will be attempting to build on the momentum created by last year’s Paris Climate Summit. 

“Earth Day is the largest, most recognizable face of the environmental movement,” said Kathleen Rogers, president of the Earth Day Network. 

During the Paris talks world leaders agreed to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, with developed countries providing $100 billion of public and private finance to help developing countries by 2020. 

The organizers behind Earth Day, which occurs annually on April 22, are hoping to use the 2016 celebration to plant 7.8 billion trees, divest from fossil fuels and make cities 100 per cent renewable. 

“Let’s take the momentum from here and build on it. Let’s start now. And let’s not stop.”

Activities associated with the day often include planting trees, raising awareness about recycling, volunteering for green projects, and reducing the amount of energy people consume. 

Earth Day is supported by a host of celebrities, including Oscar Winner Leonardo Di Caprio, Emma Watson, Miley Cyrus and Matt Damon. 

We are pleased to announce today, that Zenitex and its Social Responsibility / Community Welfare Initiative “Hearts@work” foundation has planned a Mega Tree Planting Event on 5th June 2016 in and around Surat. Whereby, 20,000 trees will be planted on 5th June 2016 itself and another 80,000 Trees will be planted upto 4th June 2017, thus, making a total of 100,000 trees in a year. We will be repeating this initiative for 3 consecutive years and have targeted to plant 300,000 trees in coming three years, just to start with.

vd quote green india clean india zenitex-heartsatwork 220416

We seek support from all the individuals, natives, communities, organizations and educational institutes to come forward and join us in this Green Drive and make it a success for us and our coming generations and most importantly for “Mother Nature”.

Lets’ not sit in the luxury of our homes and just discuss the issue. Lets’ wake up, lets’ get up and walk to make the difference.

Planting Trees is the best and the most easiest solution to control “Climate Change”, “Global Warming”, “Melting Oceans”, “Soil Erosion” and “Water Scarcity”.

BEWARE!!!! If we don’t; Then consequences are FRIGHTENING even just to think about it.

Contact us if you wish to plant a single tree or number of trees in your society campus, in your villa backyards, in your schools’ / colleges’ / universities’ playground and campuses, on your hospitals’ and clinics’ campuses, in fact, anywhere where you can plant a tree and take care of it. And we will provide you the same on 5th June ’16 and onwards. You can contact us by sending an email on info@zenitex.in and mohammed@zenitex.in. While sending your emails KINDLY mention in the subject line “WE ARE HEARTS@WORK – WE WISH TO GO GREEN – +91 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _”, also please mention your mobile number in the subject line as shown in the example. This will enable us notice the email immediately and take action and get in touch with you.

Just give it a second and visualize, if each individual plants one single tree every year, throughout India, we will have 1 Billion new trees every year. WOW! That’s sounds satisfying. Come Friends, Come Comrades, Come beloved Teachers and Professionals, WELCOME EVERYONE!

“The Earth” belongs to all of us – Nature we call it “Mother Nature” – Then Come, Lets’ take care of it responsibly”.

Meanwhile just implying any of the below suggestions to make a start today itself, a start to make the difference.

  1. Once in a Week – Walk to work, Cycle or take public transport. Start carpooling for at least 2 days of a week.
  2. Use a reusable coffee cup – avoid destructive disposables
  3. Go paperless – use the technology which will “Save Trees”
  4. Take a Tote / Carry bag to the shop or grocers or vegetable markets
  5. Go meat or dairy free at least once a week
  6. Carry a reusable water bottle
  7. Buy local produce
  8. Invest in a solar-powered phone charger (at least)
  9. Support “Tree Plantations Drive” Wherever it is.

ZENITEX CELEBRATED ‘WORLD WATER DAY AND WORLD FOREST DAY’ IN A UNIQUE AND FIRST OF ITS KIND WAY IN INDIA.

Keeping in mind the ‘World Forest Day & World Water Day’ A field trip was organized jointly by BY DR. S. & S. S. GHANDHY COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY, SURAT and ZENITEX, SURAT.

zenitex viral desai dr s. & s. s. ghandhy college world water day world forest day 47

This was a unique and first of its kind field visit in India. Wherein, a routine part of the syllabus field trip by college students was amalgamated with Environmental Protection and Energy Conservation initiatives. Zenitex was bustling with 26 young students from Dr. S. & S. S. Ghandhy College of Engineering and Technology. What was supposed to be a regular day, turned in to a delightful experience. 

Since, the trip was organized to coordinate with ‘World Water Day & World Forest Day’, gave us the impetus to add these students on the list of environmental protectionists and nature lovers. The whole activity was designed in such a way that firstly they were taken across the processing plant and along with it they were educated about various techniques implemented by Zenitex for ‘Water Conservation’ and ‘Energy Conservation’. For Water Conservation we have implemented ‘Rain Water Harvesting’; ‘Drip Irrigation’; ‘Water Scrubber’ and ‘ETP’, and various measures and innovations have been implemented to Conserve Energy, like reduction in Carbon Emission, Using recycled water for production, reduction in use of Electricity inside the plant and on campus in general, and tree plantations in support of Environmental Protection and a Greener Future.

To encourage the students, and make them a part of the ‘Go Green” world campaign. A Tree Plantation event was also executed at Zenitex campus.  More than 30 trees were planted, most of them being planted by the students themselves. This inculcated in them the need of Trees and brought them close to Nature and thus they pledged their support for the ‘Go Green’ world campaign and promised that they will themselves be actively involved in such activities and will also encourage their fellow students and friends to be a part of this Green Brigade which will help us ‘Save The Earth’.

We appreciate the devoutness of Dr. S. & S.S. Ghandhy College of Engineering & Technology, its administration and faculty for their genuinely imbibing the core values of education and its duties towards mankind and nature, which was reflected in the positive and optimistic approach of its students. And the interest shown by its management in joining hands with Zenitex & Hearts@work in their Social Responsibility / Community Welfare activities and Tree Plantation – Go Green initiatives and training of its students by signing an MoU, which in itself is an exceptional move. The MoU is expected to be signed by next week, details of which we will share with our readers shortly.

Moreover, it was a pleasure to host such enthusiastic and zealous students. They had questions and curiousness about most of the things on the campus. The students were accompanied by  Shri Rameshbhai G. Patel, H.O.D. Textile Processing Department along with Professor Shri Pavanbhai Panwala. To assist them around the campus, in to the processing unit and for tree plantation, Mr. Bhavik Naik, General Manager – Zenitex, Mr. Mohammed Nasir, PA to Mr. Viral Desai, CEO-Zenitex, Mr. K. C. Sahoo, Chief Engineer – Zenitex and other department heads were with them throughout their visit.

Finally the students met Mr. Viral Desai, CEO-Zenitex, who had a few words of inspiration and wisdom to charge the tempo of the bright students. Mr. Viral Desai, advised them to be humble and true to their duties and responsibilities and put their heart in to everything they do and success will surely follow. In the end he told them that “If you take care of Nature – Nature has its own unique way of giving back in abundance” and hence, appealed to them to take care of Nature and keep on growing more and more trees and to Save Water so that it lasts for us a little longer.

Thanks & Regards – Team ZENITEX
