To mark the relevance of Hariyali Teej, RWA Federation Ghaziabad, Floriculture Society, and Green team distributed 3000 plants to flat owners of 30 societies. The chairman of the federation, Colonel Tejendra Pal Tyagi said, “Fine particulate matter (PM 2.5) is an air pollutant, which is a concern for people's health when levels in air are high. If inhaled, PM 2.5 reduces the density of lungs and once the density of lungs is reduced, it is not treatable.”
The trees that absorb PM 2.5 are not as effective as having plants in the balcony. This is why having plants in the balcony is important. Mrs. Jayanti Jain of the Green team wrote down the names of people who took the plants and asked them to share pictures of those plants in their balcony.
Maids working in the societies were also given plants and were told the importance of having plants in homes. The chairperson of Floriculture Society, Mrs. Rama Tyagi led this campaign, provided the plants, and announced that this event will go on till August 9. She also shared information on how to take care of the plants.
