Citizens' group plans tree planting

In a bid to minimise city’s carbon footprints, a group of citizens have launched Green Bengaluru Campaign (GBC).

The group has taken up a drive to plant at least 5,000 saplings by September-end. The forest division of the BBMP too has come to their help to make the drive successful.

Eshwarappa of GBC said, they have identified at least 17 locations across the city including Koramangala and BTM Layout with four volunteers at each location.

“We are taking the help of forest cell of BBMP which is providing us with tree guards, saplings and labourers to dig pits,” said Eshwarappa. GBC is working in tandem with the ward corporators to identify locations and make arrangements to ensure that the trees survive.
