111 trees every time a baby girl is born

Hats off!

A small village in India has adopted an admirable initiative: they plant 111 trees for every baby girl that is born. It is a wonderful way of contributing to the environment and making up for our human impact. But, also, it very significant in a country where still in some areas being a girl is often too hard. In fact, expectant parents still prefer to bear a boy instead.

It’s good to know some people are trying to guarantee some oxygen for them when they grow.
