Planting a billion trees
13th Nov 2010 The Daily Star
The 'Billion Tree Campaign', the combined campaign for tree plantation by Art of Living Foundation and United Nation's Environment Programme (UNEP) has been launched in Bangladesh. Marico Bangladesh has supported the phase one of the project as part of their 'Go Green' campaign.
The campaign is raising awareness of the inter-dependence between humankind and the planet's ecosystems, as well as the linkages between tree planting and climate change mitigation, the restoration of biodiversity, air and soil quality and food security.
The Billion Tree Campaign offers hope and a simple solution for climate change mitigation, while enriching biodiversity.
