IFS Officer’s Visiting Card Can Plant a Holy Basil | Ingenious Efforts to Make the Earth Greener
Indian Forest Service officer- Parveen Kaswan is active on his social media account, where he shares photos of wildlife. However, now, he has shared something unique that will inspire a lot of people to go Eco-friendly.
The IFS officer has shared a picture of his visiting card that will yield holy basil, if planted.
Today in the World of global warming it is very important that we all understand our duty towards our mother nature. And we keep doing our share of keeping the environment clean and safe with waste management.
“So, now anybody coming to my office is getting this. This card when planted grows into a bright basil plant,” Kaswan wrote on Twitter describing it as “as a parting gift”.
He also explained that the card wasn’t made with the idea of sharing his contact details but to encourage people to “plant using this card”.
*Basil. Sorry for typo.— Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) September 1, 2020
Holy basil also called as Tulsi. With many Benifits.
He got several response from his followers to which he replied very kindly:
Great idea! However there is a catch. The card will mostly get into a card holder and may never get planted. When we value the person, we also value his/her visiting card. The card should ideally have a tear off section containing the seeds.— ???? उत्तिष्ठ भारत ।। Rising Bharat ???? (@ghoshpp1) September 1, 2020
No. This has no details on it. I don’t share contact number also. That was done for this purpose only. It’s just for the person as a parting gift. And telling them that you need to plant this card at your home. The work is done.— Parveen Kaswan, IFS (@ParveenKaswan) September 1, 2020
Numerous people came up with several ideas to make the Earth a better place, many have adopted ideas that are being shared and feel its importance of carrying out their duties towards this environment
People are very keen to adopt the eco-friendly idea, while others share multiple more ideas to enhance the possibility of making Earth better. They also said this could be done with birthday, wedding cards, business pamphlets, price tags, etc as well which are often disposed off.
