  • SGI works with the twin objectives of combating climate change caused by the billion of us in urban areas as well as  helping the billion who sleep hungry, have the assurance of two daily meals! 
  • One of the most tried and tested -- and promising -- method to combat climate change is a simple one: plant trees. Planting trees takes care of a host of issues -- from pollution abatement to creating sustainable livelihoods.
Why should you plant a tree through SGI:
  • SGI works with farmers who own land but are unable to farm on it due to resource constraints.
  • SGI identifies such farmers through NGOs who coordinate with various self help groups like Mahila Mangal Dals in rural and remote parts of India. Special emphasis is given on making women a part of the project since their earnings are almost always used for running the house
  • SGI works closely with NGOs to help the farmers plant and nurture fruit trees on their land with the objective of ensuring that a majority of the trees reach maturity and start yielding fruits. These fruits are then sold in the open market/ processed by the farmer and leads to his sustained economic sustenance.
How it adds up:
  • Planting a tree through SGI costs you INR (Rs) 500/- or US$ 9.95.
  • Proceeds from this help a farmer plant one fruit tree and the monies made available to him help him take care of his food and nutrition needs for one week. In return, he nurtures your tree to maturity over two years.
  • On maturity, usually by the third year, the tree starts yielding fruit worth INR (Rs) 500/- or US$9.95.  On an average, a tree bears fruits for 50-60 years. As fruits are sold at market rates, the yields are adjusted for inflation.
  • As you can see your INR (Rs) 500/- or  US$ 9.95 takes care of one person's food and nutrition needs for an entire year!
  • Ideally a farmer who you help plant a grove of 100 trees is ensured of a continued and sustainable livelihood over his lifetime.

On receiving your tree planting request:

  • SGI will plant the tree(s) of your choice and your chosen project site and where possible and necessary (esp remote locations) send you a geo-tagged photograph of your plant.
  • You can map with your friends or use it to gift trees to friends, family, coworkers, employees or your boss. Trees unlike a floral bouquet last many many years.
  • Planting a tree makes a difference. A tree has the potential to sequester about a ton of carbon over 50 years. What's  more, it generates enough oxygen for two human beings for their lifetimes. Any which way you look at it. You are cleansing your air and making up for the carbon that you (un)intentionally emit.
  • Good Karma notwithstanding SGI ensures that the tree(s) of your choice are planted within a period of 90-180 days. This time lag is based on planting seasons which vary from place to place and region to region and also on the tree(s) species being planted.
The simplest way to combat climate change is to plant trees: Trees breathe in Carbon Di Oxide and through the process of photo-synthesis create food for themselves and breathe out Oxygen.  

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
