"When the last tree is cut down, the last fish is dead, and the last stream poisoned, you will realize that you cannot eat money."

Humans are constantly converting forests into concrete jungles. For decades we have been practicing deforestation for our selfish needs in the name of civilization, without realizing the consequences we will face. We are sure that is a gloomy start to the blog, but we promise there is a silver lining. It is never too late to save your planet. We wouldn't be writing about it if it was too late.


Cut The Greed, Not The Green

Humans have always depended on flora and fauna for their survival. From providing oxygen to offering shelter to feeding us, life is impossible without plants. For decades, humans have prioritized development over the environment. The consequences are devastating: Climate change-induced extreme weather events, a possible preponderance of pandemics, the mass extinction of species, a large-scale loss of livelihoods, etc.

It does not stop there! The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), in its 2018 report, stated that we only have 12 years left to turn around the fight against climate change. The precise doomsday deadline also brings a feeling of helplessness and climate melancholy. With carbon emissions crossing the permissible levels and the forest area is being destroyed at an alarming rate, what can we as mere individuals do?

Medly Green Initiative

Well, something, at least. As an organization, we at Medly understand how crucial trees are for our life and how we are responsible for doing our bit for a better world. We take great pride in sharing that we have collaborated with Sankalptaru that helps us plant trees and do our bit for the environment.

One Two Three, Let's Plant A Tree

At Medly, we love nature and believe trees are our lifeline to cleaner air and a healthier planet.

As a part of the Medly green initiative, we have pledged to plant-

  • One tree for every new employee joining Medly, India.
  • One tree for every employee’s birthday.
  • One tree for every employee’s work anniversary.

The employee receives a certificate which they can show off! The certificate contains details of the location of the tree. That means you can actually visit the tree and say hi! Along with that, you get a link to view the Medly virtual forest. The virtual forest shows you the number of trees Medly has planted on behalf of the employees. It also shows you the amount of CO2 absorbed by these trees.

Medly Green Initiative

To give you some statistics, we have been able to plant 217 trees so far and have been able to absorb 108.5 tonnes of CO2! These trees are fruit-bearing and native to India. Medly pays the cost of planting the trees, which goes to the farmers. This way, everyone wins!

It is a great feeling, and we have received tremendous support and encouragement from the employees. Duh! We love celebrating their birthdays with a gift that keeps giving. We hope to do all we can to protect our planet. A unique gift of life, these trees would provide communities with greenery, fresh air, and fruits for decades to come. Medly green initiative is just a small step towards the bigger cause.

Other Sustainability Initiatives At Medly

Taking the sustainability approach forward, we strictly say no to single-use plastic in our office. We have customized glass bottles for all our employees; We include them in the swag kit for new joiners.

These are some of the very tiny initiatives amongst many that we do at Medly. We understand that it is the responsibility of our generation to ensure earth lives. Above all, it is the only home we have.

Concluding Thoughts

The effects of climate change obviously will not wither away overnight. We can still contribute in every small way to win the fight against climate change. We hope we inspired you to do your bit towards safeguarding the planet through this blog.
