Plant for Pakistan’ campaign starts today

A major one-day plantation campaign titled ‘Plant for Pakistan’ will commence today. Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to inaugurate the campaign by planting a sapling in the federal capital.

1.5 million trees will be planted under the campaign as part of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government’s ten billion tree Tsunami 2018 drive.

During the campaign, people will be given free of cost saplings at one hundred and ninety distribution points across the country.

The purpose of the campaign is to encourage people, communities, organisations, business and industry, civil society and government to collectively plant trees.

The day will also create awareness about the benefits of forests and increasing forest cover in big cities of the country.
