Delhi Greens wishes all its readers a Happy Holi and extends warm wishes for an organically colourful celebrations!

That process has now been completed and we are back in action, more determined than ever, for spearheading the cause of environmental protection and sustainable development. The task continues to remain uphill but we now have more friends and allies walking with us, who understand our cause and share our vision. We have all of you and that is all the motivation we need to continue working for harmony and sustainable development. The world surely has shaken in the past few d...

Blog IMPACT: Students Use RTI to Dechoke Trees

Green Alert
Here's another tree dechoking success story we present as a model for the citizens of Delhi. After reading the blog posts, Trees Dechoked: GK-I Residents Show the Way Against Concretization, students of B.Tech (Biotechnology) at GGSIP University took upon themselves to save trees from concretization and old rusted tree guards that are generally planted along with new tree saplings for protection and are often left unremoved thus hampering the growth of the trees. The students had previously written to the authorities at the MCD and PWD for removal of concrete and old tree guards but no action was taken whatsoever. This was discouraging since although large number of rules and regulation for protection of environment and especially trees existed, no civic authority bothered to follow...

Vitality and Abundance

Green Alert
May this Diwali be a celebration of vitality and abundance to all of us. Let me be authentic about who I was before I started writing in this blog.

I realized that no amount of rest and recreation was enough and I became lazy and bound to home. Fifty Blogs down the road (yes! unbelievable isn’t it?) I realized that you are the creators of my vitality. With the Blog I am committed to creating a possibility of a green and clean city while
