Environment or our nature has highly fragile anatomy and has received a lot of damage by the hands of humans in the past few decades. But there are many people who are aware of this damage and its consequences. One of these people is my best friend’s father, and I am proud to know him. He has worked for various NGOs that work towards such causes.
In his personal life, he does everything in his power to support the environment. Actually, he is committed and dedicated to such causes, especially the cause of planting trees. He cares a lot about the trees around him and has worked a lot in this direction. Since the last five years, he has been planting trees in his locality and the nearby areas. He has put his own efforts to get the unofficial dump yards nearby cleared to plant more trees, and contacts the owners of all empty plots nearby in order to clear them of any waste and to plant more trees.
He also keeps planting trees in other public places such as schools, offices, and gardens. Apart from this, there have been many rallies and green drives organized by him in order to get more trees planted. This also enables him to spread more apprehension in people about deforestation issues. I have also taken part in these rallies, and love planting trees with him. I respect his work and wish to follow in his footsteps. He is a very aware person, and I go with him to plant trees to help him, and to learn from what he has to say.
