Rahil Mittal

Rahil Mittal, young youth of India, inspiring NGOs of the Nation through
the creative initiative of one million plantation initiative with United First.

17-year-old Rahil Mittal, an 11th std student, studying in Nirma
Vidyavihar, Ahmedabad, has supported the 1 million plantation – Climate
Actions Drive for 14 states & 2 UT, an initiative taken by the Live to
inspire NGO. The growing effects of global warming and environmental degradation inspired his decision to take up the initiative to help achieve
the goal. He believes that people should have an innate tendency of
association with the natural world, developing a connection which
involves no mutual harm. He quotes,” You can’t force people to take
care of the natural environment, but if you encourage them to connect
with it, them just might. The Earth is a big family with nature at the
highest level, if not accept it’s dominance, we should atleast respect it.”

Two Movements in INDIA which we appreciated by 15 states and 2 UT:
1. Plantable Pencil Movement: The idea that a pencil stub can be planted
when it’s too short to write with is amazing. This gives it a new lease on
life, instead of being thrown away, the pencil becomes a symbol of
sustainability. Sustainability means using natural resources in a way that
we could keep doing for a long time. We can be more sustainable by
reducing our use of natural resources. The use of this pencil doesn’t
end when it is reduced to a stub, instead, a new life begins in the way of
a plant. It is important that we give back to Earth. I believe it is important
to do your bit to help make the world a greener, cleaner & better place
to live.

Most pencils, once sharpened down to a stub, serve no further use. A
solution to combat this waste is a pencil with a water-activated seed
capsule which can be planted when it becomes too short to use. It costs
just INR 10 for this unique pencil. What is a writing utensil will now also
grow into a plant !! The aim is to plant over 2 Million Plantable Pencils in
the coming year. They usually germinate in about two weeks.

2. JAPANESE Miyawaki Method:

The method involves planting two to four trees per square meter. Miyawaki forests grow in two to three years and are self-sustaining. They help lower temperatures in concrete heat islands, reduce air and noise pollution, attract local birds and insects, and create carbon sinks. “The method advocates the
planting of diverse native species, thereby bringing in more biodiversity in comparison to monoclonal plantations.”

Many world peace ambassadors, ministers and social activists are joining and supporting the cause. This is the first initiative of one of its kind in
India. Founder of United First, Sajan Shah who is the youngest
motivational speaker of India says, Young people like Rahil are the key
example of youth with moral and social responsibilities.
