For residents of Lucknow, a lush green neighbourhood is now merely a call away.
For residents of Lucknow, a lush green neighbourhood is now merely a call away. Sky Foundation, an NGO working in the environmental field, has started a helpline titled ‘On Call Plantation Scheme’ in order to make the city a greener place. Those interested can ask for saplings to be planted in their homes or the neighbourhood. It has not even been a month since the helpline was launched and already 50 saplings have been planted in various locations across Lucknow. All one needs to do is dial 09452415725 or 09616511633 and the plants will be at your doorstep within 24 hours. As of now, Sky Foundation is not charging a fee for the service. However, an increase in demand and scope of activities might lead it to charge Rs 10-15 per plantation service.
