Towards a greener and cleaner Hyderabad
With the ice melting in Siachen glacier, Lakshadweep Islands slowly sinking, constantly changing patterns of Monsoons and so many other things which we can't take control of, we feel helpless.
BREATHE INDIA and Great Hyderabad Adventure Club GHAC have come together to take action on a serious cause affecting our city, nation and the world i.e global warming.
 
We Humans are responsible for the current state of the degrading environment and cannot wait for some miracle to happen to save us from the global warming effects. To counter the global warming effects members of Breathe and GHAC are planting more trees in Hyderabad . Over the past week they have cleaned up and levelled an area in A.S. Rao Nagar, to keep it plastic free and ready to plant trees. They further planted thirty 4-5 year old trees on Sunday 13th June 2010 and campaigned about the program for keeping up the place in the neighborhood.
 
The trees will have rapid growth in mere 6 months and within 2 years each of them would be able to give shade to at least 10 people. It was a first of its kind plantation program in the city of Hyderabad where 4-5 year old trees were planted. Arun Raj, an organizer with Breathe and GHAC says that we would like to create many such Breathe Zones throughout the city and those who would like to have a Breathe Zone in their area may approach us and we will come together to honour the cause.
 
Members, who joined hands in this endeavor take pride in creating this first Breathe zone that would indeed give fresh and clean air to the coming many generations. They are thriving hard to add the green cover to a state which has only 18% of the land under tree cover. Further the members have plans of planting 10,000 Trees this Monsoon in the city.
