Eco Club members of AIMIT St Aloysius College (Autonomous) took part in a tree plantation drive here on July 26.
The members of the club received over forty saplings from the Director and participated in the drive enthusiastically and helped each other to plant. Dr (Fr) Melwyn Pinto SJ, Director of AIMIT, speaking on the occasion said that the objective of planting saplings was to increase the green surrounding, reduce pollution and provide natural food sources from the fruit trees to the coming generations.
The saplings planted were mostly fruit bearing trees such as mango, rambutan, chikku, blue berry (jambul), Lakshmana Phala, among others.
Assistant coordinator of Eco Club Manimozhi and hostel sub wardens Fr Joel Fernandes and Fr Alwyn D’Souza were present.
