Planting 10 crore trees in Mumbai is an unshakeable commitment towards a holistic healthy lifestyle by a businessman.
Trees & Mumbai?
A mumbaikar businessman and an environmentalist who is walking towards a green Mumbai. One man's journey has now become a full-fledged NGO "Green Yatra" with a mission to achieving a habitable planet by planting 10 crore trees by 2025 around Mumbai. Pradeep was driven to start this initiative when he felt so suffocated working and living in the concrete jungles of Mumbai.
Do the Japanese way.
How heck was this going to happen? Sounds like a frivolous dream...but Pradeep is making it happen through the only possible option he thought - Japanese MIYAWAKI method..This organic and natural method can create an urban dense forest 10 times faster and 30 times denser. 1 Acre over 12000 trees can be grown. Dozens of native species are planted in an area and this becomes maintenance free after the first three years. This dense forest curbs air pollution retains the groundwater, recharges the groundwater table, and helps balance biodiversity.
This method effectively came down in favour of this mission and helped Mumbai breathe green. Pradeep and his team have planted 1lakh trees so far and they have a humongous task ahead.....despite the Covid19 Pradeep and his army believes its doable.
