Green Brigadiers at AL work towards restoration of the Alasanatham Lake.
On 11 th January about 60 enthusiastic volunteers from our Hosur
plant joined the Green Brigade and planted 40 saplings of Bamboo,
Bougainvillea, Neem, Indian gooseberry & Guava varieties around
the Alasanatham Lake in Hosur. They were also took part in the
restoration of the Alasanatham Lake along with the team from
Environmentalist Foundation of India(E.F.I).
The four-hour activity began with the E.F.I. team introducing themselves and their area of work. The larger benefits of sapling plantation and lake cleaning, human water dynamics, waste management, disadvantage of plastics and the disposal of the same, the need and importance of community engagement in water conservation etc. was discussed during this event.
The key takeaway for our green brigadiers is the exposure to the quantum of waste that is being left behind/dumped/flushed out on our water bodies and the satisfaction towards contributing to the environment. This is the message they took back home.
