Skanray Technologies, a Mysuru-based primary health care company, conducted a tree plantation drive last week in which more than 100 saplings were planted in Hebbal Industrial Area.
Director of Medtronic- USA, Yehuda Shklarsh inaugurated the event by planting a sapling. Yehuda who has been a frequent visitor to Mysuru and Skanray addressed the gathering sharing his childhood experiences of growing in a farming family and stressed the need to preserve nature and keep Mysuru beautiful as it grows industrially.
Managing Director, Skanray, Vishwaprasad Alva encouraged his employees to plant saplings and contribute towards preserving the environment. “Skanray has 750 staff across the globe. If each member of the company along with his/her family plant a sapling each year, Skanray alone can help add 30,000 trees in the next 10 years. If we kick off a movement of forestation with students and professionals, more than 10 Lakh trees can be grown making Mysuru the world’s greenest city in addition to the country’s cleanest city title,” he said.
