Nov 18, 2016: Avashya foundation, an NGO under India’s foremost integrated logistics provider Allcargo Logistics has extended its efforts to the state of Rajasthan after completing a successful tree plantation drive in Karnataka.

The NGO is affiliated with Grow-Trees.com which is an exclusive Indian partner for the United Nation’s Environment Program (UNEP) and has planted 1711 trees on the perimeter of the Sitamata Wildlife Sanctuary in Rajasthan.

Living in a country where people find merriment during festivals in spreading blankets of smoke around their cities, it is refreshing to learn that some of us are doing our part in celebrating the beautiful life this planet has given us and are working towards paying back our debts. Such actions are a step towards purification of the air we breathe, beautification of our environment and bringing optimism into the hearts of people.

This initiative by Avashya falls under its flagship environment sustainability programme, Maitree. Avashya has planted over 2,39,000 trees under this program in the last two years.

“This initiative is in line with Avashya Foundation’s endeavor to give back to society in several different ways. Planting trees is a classic investment that pays rich dividends for the planet and our aim is to plant 10 lacs trees in the next 5 years under this initiative. I would also like to take a moment to thank Grow-Trees.com for completing the drive successfully in Karnataka & Rajasthan.” said Ms. Arathi Shetty the Non-Executive Director of Allcargo and Avashya Foundation on the plantation drive.
