At present, the pollution levels in Bangalore are increasing at such a rapid rate, that it ranks second in the list of cities with the highest air pollution in India. As per records, 14% school going children are suffering from the adverse effects of air pollution which has led to a decrease in the quality of life.
To tackle this, Weatherseal, a uPVC doors and windows brand in Southern India, has pledged to plant trees every month in a bid to save the environment from deteriorating and to expand Bangalore’s green cover as a legacy to the city.
The most effective step that one can take to improve air quality in the city is to plant saplings and nurture them. This can protect us and the future generations from the adverse effects of air pollution. With this objective in mind, Weatherseal’s Green Drive aimed to plant 365 saplings on Pollution day with support from Bangalore-based NGO partner Eco-Watch in Tilpat Valley in Madiwala BTM lake garden, Bengaluru.
Harish Munireddy, Founder and CEO, Weatherseal says, ”Weatherseal has managed to save 20,000 trees by manufacturing uPVC windows and doors, which are regarded as ‘green’ windows, acting as a substitute for wood while being eco-friendly at the same time.”
