Hearts@work Foundation, an initiative by Gujarat based textile dyeing company Zenitex, recently executed Project-2 of ‘Clean India – Green India’ campaign at eight sites in and around Maroli village in Navsari district of Gujarat.
 
Under Project-1, carried out on World Environment Day this year, 175 trees were planted at VR Popawala Children’s Home in Surat.
 
In Project-2, a total of 1,850 trees were planted. The tree plantation drive saw participation of 450 students of Mahuvar Prathmik Shala, Maroli. The enthusiasm of kids and local volunteers along with Giants Group Members and Hearts@work team was a formidable mix for a marathon effort in the direction to a Green Future.
 
Zenitex delivered a total of 300 tree guards along with the trees, and work for another 500 tree guards is in progress at the company’s facility. The engineering team at Zenitex has whole-heartedly taken the task of making tree guards in-house and even welding and painting the same, to produce quality product at reasonable price.
 
Zenitex has thanked all those who donated the tree guards. Welcoming such gestures from likeminded people, Zenitex CEO Viral Desai said, “The prime motive of this campaign by Hearts@work is to spread awareness amongst the masses towards the importance of trees in our lives. If you take care of nature – Nature has its own way of giving back in abundance.”
 
“We would be more than happy if other industries and business houses join us in this endeavour of making our planet green. If this happens, then, we can assure the future generations of a greener future,” Desai adds. (RKS)
