At a time when the whole nation is celebrating 75 years of independence as ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’, a Delhi-based startup decided to celebrate the occasion with a contribution towards a greener environment by planted 300 trees and promised to put 7500 trees in total, upcoming days across Delhi NCR. The directors of ‘The Rolling Plate’ along with their whole team participated in the plantation.
“As Independence day also happens to be the 3rd foundation day of our startup, we decided to celebrate it with a cause associated, and thus the idea of tree plantation came up. We have been supporting some or the other social cause on every occasion, and this year when we have completed 75 years of independence, we decided to contribute to a better environment,” said Jahaan Khurana, MD, The Rolling Plate.
Jahaan Khurana launched ‘The Rolling Plate’, a cloud kitchen-based online restaurant chain, in 2019 with his friend Divy Kohli and has been successfully running the unique idea with around 300 online restaurants across Delhi NCR.
On the occasion of their 3rd foundation day, ‘Directors, along with their whole team of more than a hundred employees, also took out a Tiranga Yatra and then distributed some essentials among the homeless people.
“Giving it back to society has always been our thought with the growing business. The Rolling Plate has given us a presence in the food business community, and whenever we get a chance to do something for either the society or the environment, we definitely volunteer to come forward,” said Divy Kohli, Director, The Rolling Plate.
The first lot of three hundred saplings has been planted at a public park in the Ashok Vihar area of North Delhi. The directors informed that since they have employees from across Delhi NCR, every member has been assigned the responsibility of planting as well as maintaining the plants.
“It’s not just that we will plant and go. We have pledged to maintain them as well. So I will be visiting all the sights where we are running this drive and keeping a check on the growth of plants. The message is clear. We have to save our environment and make it better for the next generation. This is the need of this hour, and all should understand and act accordingly,” Jahaan Khurana concluded.
