Children pose with a tree at the ‘I own a tree’ programme organised by the Eco Club at the Jnanabharati campus on World Habitat Day. dh photoBhaskar G S, Chairman - Eco Club, Rotary Midtown said that the ‘Eco Club’ will not be complaining about trees being uprooted in the name of infrastructure, but instead will go on planting more trees around the City. For each uprooted tree, we will plant 10 trees,” he said.

The club has come up with a unique programme, ‘I own a tree’ designed to bring in the much needed bonding of people with the environment. The programme allows a person to sponsor and own a tree for two years by paying Rs 365.

During the first two years of the sapling’s life, Eco Club will take care of the sponsored tree, where the sponsor can come and visit the tree whenever he wishes. One can also volunteer and help in planting saplings.

Eco club has plans to plant more saplings in the BU campus, in government schools and along the City’s main roads with the permission of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike.
Those interested can contact #408, 7th main, 2nd block, Jayanagar, Bangalore - 560 011.  Call 26563401 or 9845226157 or 9845014992 or visit www.iownatree.org
