Sundarbans, the land of deep green forest shade, is not only just a green cover but also a home to many endangered species. It is a living habitat for many animals, one of them being the calm yet fearless - The Royal Bengal Tiger. They need the green cover to camouflage for survival, which is declining at an alarming rate.
Moreover, the ecological and climatic conditions of the Sundarbans are extremely fragile. These appalling signs demand for our immediate attention! According to the Forest Survey of India (FSI), between 2017 and 2019, the mangrove cover in the Sunderbans shrank by more than two square kilometres, from 2214 sq km to 2112.11 sq km. A long term vision with short term commitments and efforts from all of us can ensure a secure future for its wildlife, people and environment.
Weaver Story is committed to a world where the wildlife, the rural livelihoods and the environment are no longer faced by the threat of endangerment or displacement. To maintain the ecosystem balance, we have pledged to plant 1000 trees in the span of an year, and replenish more, thereby reducing our carbon footprint by several folds. This is a partnered initiative with GrowTrees, aimed at giving back to nature, for all the good it nurtures us with.
This initiative is open to all the customers of Weaver Story. You can have a role in providing a secure future for not just the tigers, but also the people whose livelihoods depend on it. You can be a reason for those people to have better employment opportunities, make a direct impact on carbon reduction, upgrade water catchment areas, and offer flowers, fruit, fodder and fuel to the local communities and other endemic species.
So let’s come together, and bring a good societal change to support the economy and the environment, because a little contribution goes a long way. Make each and every tree count under your name.
