ENO news from Chennai, India

Today our school held a " Plant for the Planet" day, We purchased 380 plants and 12 trees, to be planted by our student body. It was an exciting morning, and the children and parents, had a blast planting the plants and trees. We put together a little booklet for the children with the event today and it was made out of 100% recyclable items from our school. No trees lost!!!

As we are not able to participate on Sept 22, today was our Sept 22nd. We are so excited to be part of the ENO campaign and look forward to working with everyone in the years to come.

Next week, we are planting more trees, 357 to be exact, the forest dept , has donated the trees for us to plant. We are planting them around our city with the help of the Chennai Govt Offices.

We also plan to plant 1000 trees in total by the end of 2008.

Wish us luck!

I will post pictures from our event today by next week!

Happy planting!
