Environmental Protection

The environment has been a hot topic across the globe in recent years, and rightfully so. Climate change is a monster that stares us straight in the face and is increasingly harsh and difficult to predict. Soil and water degradation, forest resource depletion, and environmental pollution are taking place on a large scale at the hand of humans. Human exploitation of resources to exhaustion, the production and use of impure energy, and the release of many toxins lead to the environment becoming incapable of self-decomposition.

With the desire to raise public awareness and inspire action for the environment towards sustainable development, while leaving a healthy environment for the generations to come, Greentrees has been carrying out meaningful activities to protect the environment
