Thane-based Purushottamlal Gupta has vowed to reduce the air pollution levels, by planting saplings & revive the shrinking green cover in the massive concrete-metropolitan Mumbai.
He started his initiative in Jan 2016. Today 40 more rickshaw drivers have joined his cause!
The saplings he planted have a survival rate of 80% and he has now taken up the mission to plant more than 1,500 saplings by mid-2017.
Their movement is called ‘Sadbhavana Hara Bhara Bharat’ & they organise plantation drives every weekend. Gupta spends his monthly income of rs 15,000 on his children’s education & saplings.
Bringing a green change, one sapling at a time!
