Planting trees - Beyond Fashion
The importance of Planting trees was a topic which you would have heard back in school. Now, depletion of resources, global warming, emission of toxic gases from industries into the atmosphere, all play a role in emphasizing the importance of it repeatedly. We can see more companies supporting and implementing Go Green initiatives, and keen on reducing the carbon footprint.
Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSRs) of companies are now more focused on the environment, as it is becoming the need of the hour.

Different initiatives across the Industry
More and more companies are opting to go green by planting trees. It can be a direct yearly initiative, and some companies use a portion of the amount from their sale and use it for planting trees.
Adopting villages, schools also help students and people of the locality and can be used to plant trees in that area.
More emphasis on 'Made in India' products, brands leaning towards sustainable fashion methods are commendable, in the sense of development to the industry and the environment.

If we consider the Future to be environment friendly, and sustainable then planting trees is the way forward. Programs and welfare schemes for Agricultural families will do a world of good to preserve and ensure growth in planting and agriculture.
Educating farmers and forming NGOs, self-help groups can be a solution. This will educate not only farmers but also people to pursue something in this regard for the betterment of Nature. What is on the cards for the fashion industry? Initiatives regarding planting trees, gifting saplings, and rewards leaning towards 'Go green' can be an option.
