To Achieve Global Cool (Only Trees Are Consuming Carbon Di-Oxide)

What is Mission Green Earth ?

Let’s say we plant a Tree for every person on the planet, approximately 6 Billion Trees. That’s a tough one, so how about if we start with 1 tree for every 6 people. That makes it 1 Billion, which is still a lot, so let’s target 1/10th of that goal to start with... 100 million trees... That is Mission Green Earth, at least for now. But, why ?

Why ?

A couple of thousand reasons, but to name a few. We want to do this for ourselves. For cleaner air, more oxygen, decrease pollution (As per NASA studies, trees help decrease a lot of toxins from the air), Global Warming and of course greener surroundings & a Green Earth.

  • To reduce global warming
  • To have Clean & Green Environment
  • To protect Environment
  • To protect bio biodiversity
  • To promote global cool
How ?

Let’s work on it. You can take up the responsibility of getting a sapling, finding a location, some tools to plant it and regular watering & maintenance to sustain it. Or we can leverage our network of people who will do all that and you simply “Adopt a Tree”.

We’ve found that a lot of people want to help and be part of this but their time, space & material constraints do not allow them to plant a tree as conveniently. We’d like you to leverage us at Mission Green Earth to make this happen.

All you do is “Adopt a Tree”, we utilize our vast network of volunteers & resources across ‘Art of Living’, United Nations Millennium Campaign, several forestry departments and horticultural boards to make it happen.

Art of Living is the world’s largest NGO and has partnered successfully with United Nations on numerous projects & initiatives in over 147 Countries.
