                                               Free Plant Distribution Drive

A free Plant distribution drive was carried out during the Reunion event at Somaiya College, Vidyavihar on 22nd and 23rd January 2016. The saplings of “Ocimum tenuiflorum” commonly known as tulsi plant were distributed. The plant is well known for its medicinal properties and to purify the indoor air quality of households. Owing to these properties people were encouraged to plant and take care of the sapling. Suggestions for healthy growth of the plants were also given. This ultimately helps in aiding to increase a little bit of the greenery in the planet. 

There was also a model demonstration of a “sustainable building” which explained the various technologies that can make urban environment eco-friendly without compromising on the comforts. Technologies like rain water harvesting, vermicomposting, Solar panels and algal panels that address problems like water scarcity, solid waste, and, high electricity usage. The processes were explained in detail and encouraged the young crowd to learn about eco-friendly ways of living. 

People were also encouraged to participate in various activities for environmental causes conducted by green health foundation. More than 500 people volunteered to support which exclaims the grand success of the event.
