#LetsPlantOurFuture with National Foods' thought-provoking initiative

The initiative by National Foods' helped reduce carbon footprint by a whopping 25%


June 23, 2021




Ever since the prominent headlines have been dominated by the spread of the novel Covid-19 pandemic and themes of racial injustice, climate change caused by pollution and global warming has almost taken a back seat. Yet the adverse effects continue to be felt by people across the world.

As global temperatures continue to soar, the urgency of addressing climate change that is eating away glaciers at an alarming rate could not be greater – especially for countries like Pakistan. The country is home to over 7000 glaciers which makes it even more vulnerable to the havocs of climate change.

This battle against mother nature, however, cannot be fought alone. It's also critical to realise that such events do not occur out of the blue; there have been countless warning signs that were ignored over time. But as they say, it’s never too late to stir up positive change!
One Pakistani brand took it upon themselves to raise awareness about the grave issue on World Environment Day, celebrated globally on June 5th. National Foods Limited (NFL) took their promise of a better Pakistan a notch further by upholding its values and leading by example.

Apart from being consistent in delivering premium-quality products, they vowed to be more responsible towards preserving the environment of our beautiful country. They launched an incredibly interesting, yet engaging campaign #LetsPlantOurFuture, that aims to make a colossal positive impact while making people well-versed with the power of repurposing.

The brand introduced exclusive pack sizes for their Recipe Mixes, and stepped up to optimise material consumption by reducing paper usage. NFL’s upscaled initiative can save hundreds of trees per annum, decrease the tree-felling rate, and result in a significant amount of reduction in the brand's carbon footprint.

Here’s how the ever-responsible brand has geared up to reduce their carbon footprint by over 25%, much of which has been achieved already.

National Foods Limited started the mission by sending out 150+ eco-friendly giveaways to influencers in order to expedite the cause. They asked them to play their part in educating the masses and planting seeds for a cleaner and greener Pakistan.

All of the influencers received a box made up of seed infused paper which included three types of seeds, sunflower, cantaloupe and okra to plant, and a pot along with optimised recipe mixes packs.

PM Imran urges youth to gear up for 'biggest tree planting campaign in Pakistan's history'

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday asked all Pakistanis, especially the youth, to prepare themselves for the "biggest tree planting campaign in Pakistan's history" ahead of the monsoon season this year.

The premier shared an infographic on Twitter that showed the number of trees per person in different countries. According to the chart, there are 10,163 trees per person in Canada, 699 per person in the United States, 130 per person in China, 28 per person in India and five trees per person in Pakistan.

"We have a lot of catching up to do," the premier noted in his tweet. "And we will be gearing up this monsoon season for our plantation drive — the biggest in Pakistan's history."

Earlier this year, Prime Minister Imran launched the Spring Tree Plantation Campaign 2021, vowing that his government would make a "green Pakistan" by planting 10 billion trees.

According to the Pakistan Economic Survey 2020-21 that was released last month, the target of planting around 350 million trees and 814.6m plants across the country in that time period under the Ten Billion Tree Tsunami Programme (TBTTP) had been achieved.

The success of the Billion Trees Afforestation Project (BTAP) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa encouraged the government to launch the TBTTP across the country; the programme was approved by Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (Ecnec) at a cost of Rs125.1bn.

The programme was launched for the revival of forest and wildlife resources in Pakistan and intended to improve the overall conservation of existing protected areas besides promoting eco-tourism, community engagement and create jobs.

During phase-I of the programme, plantation/regeneration of 3.2bn trees will be completed.

The government is confident that a target to plant one billion trees will be achieved by June 2021 and this project is expected to deliver an environmental dividend in preserving atmospheric health, reducing greenhouse gas effects, lowering cases of random floods, lowering rains, droughts and enhancing other biodiversity supportive actions.

The federal government also plans to incentivise students to plant trees by offering 20 extra marks to students who plant at least 20 saplings. Legislation to this effect is being introduced in parliament and is aimed at integrating youth in the Ten Billion Tree Tsunami plantation project, according to Minister for Climate Change Zartaj Gul.

The minister said the unique effort was being developed to require each university graduate to plant at least 20 trees during the course of their education, in accordance with the prime minister's vision of a clean and green Pakistan.
