Carbon Reduction Program
With a deep understanding on the need to protect our biome, and an ardent proponent of Carbon Reduction Program and efficient Greenhouse gas conservation, Vikasa Tarangini launched the Green Kumbh Yatra along with Dr. Braulio Ferrriera de Souza Dias, Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity. Green Kumbh Yatra, which is organized by Living Planet Foundation, is a unique program that highlights the conservation of biodiversity across several countries in the world. The aim of Green Kumbh is to establish the Green Kumbh Yatra as a powerful focal point around which people can save environment and build a clean, healthy, diverse world.
A Pioneer in Propagating Reduction of Plastic Usage
Sri Venkateswara Temple in Tirumala Hills, India is the most visited place of worship and the second richest pilgrimage center of any faith in the world. Around 40 million people visit the temple and the path to the temple included 7 to 9 miles trekking on the sacred hills. In recent years these hills were heavily polluted with plastic water bottles and other plastic products causing severe environmental hazards and Vikasa Tarangini initiated a trekking with 70,000 devotees to highlight the use of plastic alternatives and to completely reduce plastic usage. The hills are now in the visible transformation stage with pilgrims embracing plastic alternatives protecting the environment.
