One of the biggest problem the world is facing is the climate change and the major contribution is the excessive emission of carbon dioxide mostly coming from vehicles and industrial companies. TFPC gave effort to reduced it through Tree Planting. With this small effort, we can helped reduce 1 ton of carbon dioxide through 1 tree planted. A total of 103 tree samplings were planted by TFPC.
