Twenty-five years ago, in 1995, a Tree Planting Program and Cleanliness Campaign was developed by the Rural Development Wing.  Under the leadership of BK Mohini Didi and BK Sarla Didi, BK Jagdish Bhai guided BK students to go and clean up the cities and plant trees; thousands of trees.  Thousands of BK centres have continued this valuable work and below we show how one centre in Orissa has planted 7000 trees in less than a year.

The Rural Development Wing also started to celebrate the annual World Environment Day in 2016 when hundreds of centres arrange environment awareness campaigns and tree plantation events each year.
