Linea Johansson, Miss Sweden 2016 and one of the top models of the world, took part in a tree plantation drive carried out by Hearts@work Foundation, a project of Surat based Zenitex. Under the ‘Clean India-Green India’ campaign initiated by the foundation, 200 trees of different types were planted at Sarthana Nature Park (Zoo) in textile hub of Surat.
Gulmohar, Jack Fruit, Lagerstroemia Speciosa, Ashok, and Bauhinia were among the trees planted on September 24. This is the foundation’s project no. 8 and till now more than 13,000 trees have been planted under the campaign. As a result, achieving the twin objective of fighting pollution and wishing for a greener future has gained pace in the town known for man-made textiles.
Planting trees barefooted, Johansson quipped, “This comes naturally to me as fresh air and clean environment are in abundance in my country and so working towards that is by default.”
Admiring the campaign, she said, “It is a wonderful event wherein, an individual—Viral Desai—and his foundation Hearts@work have taken the initiative in the most important aspect in today’s world. Desai being a young entrepreneur and having a mission and vision for the future is a commendable quality for an individual and no doubt he has been showered with so many accolades, recognitions and awards at this young age. He is a role model for the youth and emulating him is a very healthy habit for today’s generation and generations to come.”
She assured Desai, who is also CEO of Zenitex, that throughout her stay, she would like to participate in future tree plantation campaigns and other social services with Hearts@work.
The main coordinator of the event was decorated ex-army officer Prafull Mehta, who is the superintendent of the Nature Park. Mauna Mashruwala, the elite socialite of Surat, and Gokul Baraiya who has acted in a Gujarati film, were other guests on the occasion.
The participation of well-known celebrities in such farsighted and most required events motivate many others to join the drive for saving the future and making it green. (RKS)
