MMK Green Anniversary

Mythri Mahila Koota celebrated their 8th anniversary and World Environment Day by planting Saplings at Agara Lake mini-Forest. 

Agara Lake mini-Forest 4 years ago was a waste dumping ground, with support from SayTrees and funding by Mythri Mahila Koota over 200 saplings were planted, since then Kaagaz Foundation has been taking care of the saplings, planting more saplings, replacing dead saplings, cleaning up the place with some support from citizens who were part of clean-up drives. Today it has over 250 Trees adding Oxygen to surroundings, attracting Birds and adding to the Bengaluru Lung space. 

On this occasion little boy Kanishk Reddy planted 5 saplings to mark his Green Birthday. 

Increasing the Green cover and keeping surroundings Clean are very important steps towards Cleaner Air and Cooler City, this year theme of World Environment Day being #BeatAirPollution, creating awareness about Air Pollution which is in fact killing more people across the globe is very critical.
