Green Manufacturing - Chemically speaking


The chemical industry is an integral part of our being today. But it is also one of the most polluting sectors in the industry. Deadly chemicals used to manufacture textiles, pharmaceutical drugs and various other chemicals add to land, air and water pollution. Thankfully, there is a significant degree of concern about the same.

This is where green chemistry, also known as sustainable chemistry, comes in. It encourages processes and systems that look for alternatives to hazardous substances either being used, or being produced. 

Not only does it mean a cleaner, greener environment, research also shows that it makes economic sense to manufacturers of generic medicines since it encourages maximum inputs and minimum cost. Definitely time for more companies to give sustainable growth a chance.  

Against this background, green chemistry provides a sustainable solutions to future chemical manufacturing, according to Prof James Clark, Director, The Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence for Industry, University of York, UK.

Sustainable Green Initiative plants fruit trees on community lands like orphanages and old age homes and on lands owned by marginal and Bpl farmers.  We work with self help groups and NGOs who help us identify right beneficiaries who can continue the process of planting and nurturing trees. (See our methodology)
At Sustainable Green Initiative, we plant trees to help the fight against climate change and also hunger, poverty and rural migration.  By planting a tree through us, you help in doing your bit to mitigate your carbon footprint and carry on the fight against hunger, poverty and climate change.

Did you know a tree sequesters about 1 ton of carbon and processes enough oxygen for two peoples requirements in its life-time?

So what are you waiting for? Plant a tree today.

Plant a fruit tree for your loved one this Valentines Day
