He’s Been Planting A Single Tree Everyday For 37 Years. The Result? Incredible 6k
Meet Jadav Payeng, one of the most remarkable humans on the planet and you’ve probably never heard of him or his work. Thirty-seven years ago in 1979, Jadav took tree saplings and seeds to a remote Indian island which was under threat from complete erosion and turned it around by planting trees.
The trees not only helped save the mini river island by giving it stability form the trees roots, but also a way to give back the planet as a whole by planting more trees, while on the other side of the world trees are being cut down in rainforests.
