Restoring Punjab’s green cover for its land and its people.

Punjab’s high population density, rapid urbanization, industrial proliferation, and irresponsible farming have depleted its green cover and left it polluted. Its forest cover is a mere 3.5%.

Every individual – rich and poor, urban and rural, and in all regions – rely on natural capital. Trees give us fresh air, prevent soil degradation and flooding, and are essential to maintaining the ecological balance, and as such life on this planet.

Plant for Punjab is an initiative that promotes responsible environmental practices, cares for biodiversity, creates germplasm conservation banks, reduces carbon footprint and offers protection against future ecological degradation.

HOW IT WORKS

Mobilizing communities to restore their environment.

RoundGlass Foundation mobilizes citizen power by creating partnerships with gram panchayats and eco-clubs to introduce responsible practices and help Punjab restore its green cover.

Mobilizing Community Support

Create awareness and motivate participation through plantation drives as a collective effort of local officials, people and especially youth.

Planting Saplings

Identify indigenous plant species, planting sites and involve the local community in the plantation process.

Ongoing Support

Provide aftercare support for upto 3 years- timely watering, manure application, remedy as needed and continued documentation.

By drawing attention to sustainability, we help people commit to the recovery of nature and act to address Punjab’s ecological challenges.
