50 Million Trees Planted In 24 Hours

50 Million Trees

India plants 50 million trees in 24 hours. 49.3 million tree saplings were planted in India last July 11. 800,000 people came together to plant 80 different tree species. India aims to plant 235 million acres of tree by 2030. The government allocated $6.2 billion towards afforestation. This is part of the Paris climate agreement they signed on Earth Day 2016. 6 of the 10 most polluted cities in the world comes from India. Tree planting can significantly increase air quality and reduce greenhouse emissions. The reforestation effort will be monitored through aerial photographs. If less than 1% of India's population can do it in a day, imagine what the world can do.
