It gives us immense pleasure to introduce to you a new initiative by the All India Association of Industries to revive the ecological balance in Mumbai. “Adopt a tree” a step to help and develop “Sagar Upvan” a botanical garden developed by the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) located at Colaba. The adoption includes maintenance of a tree or a section of the garden, security, planting of new variety of plants to ensure a well maintained public space. An initiative that boosts the ecosystem without impacting your pockets.
The Sagar Upvan had been under the adoption programme of AIAI since 2004, as a token of commitment towards the city and creating a better environment for the public.
