SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

 

We encourage the public to plant trees with us. Wondering how that relates to you? Planting trees is seen as a sustainable activity because they act as air and water filters. Trees absorb greenhouse gases like nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. They also convert carbon dioxide to oxygen through photosynthesis. One tree can clean about 330 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year.

Over the years, we approached local organizations in the city to spread the ideas of tree planting and awareness campaign through tree planting activities. These includes some primary schools, parks and kindergartens.

Other than local organizations, schools and kindergartens, we also visited Old Folks’ homes and churches to help in greening their environment while at the same time raise awareness on what we can do to build a greener environment.

BENEFIT OF TREES ON THE ENVIRONMENT

While planting trees can certainly have a positive impact on your energy bill, sustainable gardening can also positively impact the environment. The roots filter groundwater and control run off and erosion by holding soil in place. They also cool down the air, and not just with shade. The transpiration process they go through releases moisture into the air, producing a cooling effect for our environment.
