Mumbai air pollution: Bandra’s youth lead the way in combatting air pollution crisis

Saakshi Teckchandani (23), founder of Planet for Plants and Animals (PPAIndia), organised ‘Vriksharopan’ – a tree-plantation campaign along the shores of Carter Road

Key Highlights

  1. Trees play a vital role in purifying the air by absorbing toxins and carbon dioxide
  2. The team is driven by a commitment to instill eco-consciousness within the community
  3. The next plantation drive is coming up on November 25 at Priyadarshini Park

They say that youth is insane. Perhaps that’s why they are the harbingers of change.

In a bid to promote environmental well-being, residents joined hands to spearhead a plantation drive on the Carter Road Promenade.
