Greenpeace India launches Garden City 2.0 initiative 26.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Greenpeace India has invited people of the city to the launch of the vertical garden named Garden City 2.0. The 30 ft x 30 ft vertical garden has been installed at Phoenix Market City in Whitefield. Citizens are invited to sow seeds placed in the structure and having their names on the pot. They can watch the growth for eight weeks after which the plants will be given back to their owners.

PM Modi writes heart-warming letter to Swacch Bharat hero Prachi Deshpande 10.8.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Recently, PM Narendra Modi made a good Samaritan’s day when he replied to her and praised her efforts in keeping India clean. Mission Swachh Bharat is close to PM Modi’s heart and he keeps an eye out for any endeavours in that field. Prachi B Deshpande, a resident of Pune, decided to fight on war footing by no longer dumping waste from her home in dustbins, but instead making compost fertiliser from it. Not just content with the environmental-friendly way of disposing her own waste, the Punekar also collected waste from her neighbourhood homes and temples and starting organic farming on top of her roof. When Prachi wrote a letter to PM Modi about her effort, she probably didn’t expect a reply from a man as busy as the PM. PM Modi wrote to her: “Your contribution towards making the society and environment clean and healthy will bring in positive transformation.” PM Modi also termed her endeavour as a good example of people’s participation in the Swacch Bharat ...
