Tree-Planting Event in Shanghai

MMK Million - Tree Planting Day March 11, 2017, Shanghai

Team China had it's first MMK Million activity last weekend and we all went out to a suburban area of Shanghai called Songjiang on a nice Saturday morning, equipped with lots of coffee and a positive attitude to contribute to a better environment by planting some trees.

Once we arrived at this interesting botanic garden we suited up and planted over 12 trees and after which we enjoyed a delicious organic Chinese lunch made of quality produce.Tree-Planting Event in Shanghai

We were told about the benefits of tree planting and wanted to share several of these:

  • An average size tree creates sufficient oxygen in one year to provide oxygen for a family of four.
  • Planting trees in the right place around buildings and homes can cut air-conditioning costs up to 50 percent. 
  • Planting trees for the environment is good as they are renewable, biodegradable and recyclable. 
  • During photosynthesis, trees and other plants absorb carbon dioxide and give off oxygen.
  • Trees keep in cheek the air and water pollution.
  • Why planting trees is important is evident as they are the natural habitat of the animals and birds, as well as many endangered species.
