Evolet India, a Gurugram based electric vehicle Startup, has taken a pledge to plant and maintain a tree for every e-scooter sold. At the promotion of Bollywood movie ‘Sab Kushal Mangal’ starring Akshaye Khanna, Sqn. Ldr. Prerana Chaturvedi, Executive Director & CEO – Evolet, said, “Programs like these help to reinforce the importance for switching to electric vehicles. This innovative model of transportation will make the concept of Electric bikes even greener and more attractive by planting and maintaining trees with the support of our customers thereby engaging local communities as well to develop sustainable farming. The company has allocated 100 acres of land under its umbrella of Rissala Group situated at Karnal, Haryana for this noble initiative. To promote the growth of native ecosystems, Evolet is going ahead with plantation of indigenous trees and pledges to plant & nurture a lac of trees per year”.
The company has taken this decision as a part of CSR initiative and will be implemented immediately. Calling the initiative ‘Let’s heal the planet’, Mr Nitin Manmohan, Bollywood Film Producer, said, “We all are aware of the harmful fumes coming out of the fossil fuel-based vehicles and the noise pollution that they generate. E-scooters not only help curtail noise and air pollution but also are more pocket-friendly. Mobility is important but that does not mean that we should ignore the environment in which we are moving, This initiative by Evolet is a great step towards raising awareness which will highlight the significance of planting trees and drive every individual to take a step in the direction of developing a green, pollution-free country.”
Our country is facing several environmental problems that are on the rise and the receding green cover is one of the key aspect amplifying this cause. Promoting tree plantations is a basic but vital step towards the preservation of the environment which in turn will positively impact the health of citizens. The company is also of the view that switching over the e-scooters will also help contribute towards the overall health of the environment. “We are doing our bit and people from all walks of life have lent their hand in terms of time and ideas. Legendary Bollywood producers such as Mr Nitin Manmohan, Mr Pehlaj Nilahani, Ms Madhubha Darkar; industrialists such as Khaitan and Goenkas; and artists such as Jassi and Daler Mehndi; and many foreign dignitaries, royalties have joined hands to make this a world level movement,” adds Sqn. Ldr. Prerana.
