  Swachh Bharat Abhiyan Ginger Hotels   |  Pune
The volunteer team comprised of Roots Corporation employees and Vendor Partners. The hotel has an unused bus stop outside our hotel in Hinjewadi, Pune. The bus stop located is in the heart of IT Park where there is a lot of road traffic. This bus stop was not in use just because it was not clean. Moreover as it’s located in the heart of IT Park pollution is also one of the biggest aspect because of less tree plantation.
Enthusiastically all volunteers thought to first clean the entire area of bus stop and contribute towards “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan”. The volunteers also contributed to minimize the pollution in this area by planting some tress. Trees planted would be use for both reason to reduce the pollution and in future people using bust stop can wait under the tress shadow in this hot summer during day time.
