International Women’s Day 2014, plant a fruit tree at SPCI - a girls orphanage.

Every year, around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on the 8th of March. This year, for the first time in India, SGI will commemorate this important date by planting one additional fruit tree for every tree that you will come forward to plant. 

In fact it will be a great pleasure if you joined us to plant these trees with us at SPCI, a girls orphanage at Joka, Kolkata.

“To be poor and be without trees, is to be the most starved human being in the world. To be poor and have trees, is to be completely rich in ways that money can never buy.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés.

Did you know: The net cooling effect of a young, healthy tree is equivalent to ten room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours a day.

So join us as we plant fruit trees at this girls orphanage.

For every tree planted by you we will plant one more tree on your behalf and email a gift certificate to you and your gifts recipient. See sample

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.
