It all started as a green initiative nearly five years ago by Nirbhay Kwatra. The young man, a Modern School fifth grader then, embarked on a long but stimulating journey of contributing towards saving the planet in January 2012 when he conducted a “Go Green Walk” at Lodhi Gardens for spreading awareness about effective ways of conserving the environment and planting trees. Ever since, Smiling Tree has spread its reach far and wide to take its massive mission forward, gifting plants and saplings on birthdays, weddings, social events, Diwali and other occasions, planting trees, fostering plantation drives at Modern School, St. Xavier’s School, Roshanara Club, Nirmal Hriday, partnering with the Government in plantation drives in Namami Gange Programme, national mission for clean Ganga, and various other venues in and around Delhi.
At Smiling Tree, our mission is to involve people in voluntarily furthering green cover, fighting tree depletion, promoting awareness and practice of creating clean, renewable energy from our everyday; responsible and environmentally caring daily living – proactive steps and activities that will result in positive changes for all, amplifying the larger goal of sustainable ways of life, augmented by lowering energy costs and minimizing all waste.
Smiling Tree has a 5-year-old legacy of conducting plantations, tree care events and activities that instil affection for our planet. Instead of generic messages to save the planet, our team asks its members to adopt a plant, wherein every individual was given a simple task: plant a tree and take care of its well being. Unlike usual plantations where plants and saplings are forgotten after sowing, Smiling Tree takes care of every life it plants in the true spirit of gardening.
Smiling Tree has received recognitions and has gained media attention for its innovative activities and events. From schools and homes to offices, our team is dedicated to making every space an abode of nature
