Aranyamayee News (5-AUG-2018) : A total of 508 trees were planted in NIT Rourkela campus on 5-AUG-2018 in its second series of plantation spree, accounting for a total of 1,004+ trees.
What it means? Well, 1,000 trees when grown up can be able to compensate for the carbon emissions from 130 cars in Rourkela and produce around 20,000 KG of extra Oxygen per year. Remember that, each one of us needs around 255 KG Oxygen per year to survive.
We may hope that, loads of fruits, health and environmental benefits awaited in the years to come.
