Speaking in this event, founder of Sahyadri Devarai and actor Sayaji Shinde, said, “On Environment Day, the message is ‘Plant trees, save trees’ but the key issue is how much is followed, rather than when children are admitted to school with a birth certificate, every child should plant a tree. It should be stipulated that the seed should be brought so that when the boy or girl completes his schooling, he will have a tree of his own right. In this young age, they will have the culture of the environment. For this, Maharashtra government, central government, government and private social organizations as well as schools and colleges need to work together only then will we save our environment. Today India has a deluge of infrastructure and in this deluge we are destroying many trees, even though these trees are easily rehabilitated, we are ignoring them.”

In addition to developing environmental awareness among students at an early age, this educational material is useful for developing communication skills, memory and logic development, creativity, self-confidence, hand-eye coordination, observational skills, and creative skills.
The amount of carbon-dioxide, carbon-monoxide, etc. has increased in the atmosphere. Still, if we do not take care of the environment, this whole matter is likely to get out of hand. This is not to say that the end of the earth is near or to scare people, but it is our sincere attempt to suggest that it is time for everyone, from the small to the small, from the rich to the poor, to take care of the universe and environment around us, which is made up of the five elements.”
