Bhubaneswar: After plant saplings of different varieties, books and cotton bags, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) has come forward with 'seed card', a New Year greeting card with the message 'Gift Green and PLAN(T) Your Future'.
The 'seed card' is a beautiful card made from handmade paper that contains seeds inside. When a user throws away the card in the open the seeds germinate and thus more trees are added to the existing plants in the environment automatically.
BMC Commissioner Prem Chandra Chaudhary, while gifting seed cards to delegates attending the ODF ++ declaration meeting at BMC Conference Hall here, said, "If we can start adopting small ideas like this in our daily life then we can create more greenery and beautify the city as well as fight climate change threats."
