Orchids The International School initiates #ShineYourCity Campaign

Mumbai: As India’s biggest festival Diwali-the festival of lights is just around the corner, and the students of Orchids The International School (OIS) are just trying to make it more special.

Given the kind of environmental hazards, the city faces, taking control measures is imperative. Trees are instrumental in purifying air by absorbing dangerous gasses and giving oxygen.

Therefore, considering the city as their home, Orchidians have decided to save the environment and promote a clean and green Diwali this year by planting thousands of tree saplings in neighborhood areas around the school branches across the country. Renowned environmentalist Dr. Subhajit Mukherjee flagged the ‘Shine Your City’ campaign at TMC ground, Brahmand, Thane West to encourage the kids.

The students brought a variety of saplings, including Tulsi, Snake Plant, Mari Gold, Mogra, etc. The students participated in the drive enthusiastically and helped each other in planting the saplings. All the saplings were planted in an open area outside the school premise, which required reformation. The students, along with the teachers planted the sampling. They also pledged to look after the planted saplings, plant more and more trees, and encourage others to do the same.

Students from grade 6 to grade 10 participated from multiple branches of Orchids The International School in the tree plantation drive at the TMC ground, Brahmand, Thane West.

Dr. Subhajit Mukherjee addressed the students on the importance of Rainwater Harvesting, biodiversity and the need to save the environment. He said, “We as humans ignore the fact that the only thing keeping us alive is the oxygen present in the environment and we shouldn’t take it for granted. Therefore, saving the environment is crucial for us and it should be the primary focus for the young minds. We should encourage and educate everyone in the society to take small steps towards saving our environment for making a larger impact towards a greener and cleaner future.”

#ShineYourCity is our modest effort to celebrate Diwali, with an aim to reduce carbon footprint and to reinforce the sense of responsibility amongst our students to keep the neighborhood clean and green. It was great to see the students do their bit.
