VJ and actress Anoushey Ashraf urged more and more people to plant trees in this campaign. She also spoke about the negative effects of climate change and how they can be reversed through planting trees.
Pakistan’s carbon footprint has increased by 123% over the years and this is why we are one of the countries that suffer terribly from the effects of climate change and global warming,
But we still have a chance. All of these negative things can be reversed.
