About Us

Who are we?

We Grow Forest Foundation is founded by a group of women committed to saving the planet and treating it with respect. We are a carbon-neutral non-profit organisation accredited by Environmental NGOs of India (ENGOI). Our motto is to protect natural habitats, reduce carbon footprint and ensure reforestation through urban forestry and related efforts. The Clean Shoreline – Sea of Change is a flagship project of We Grow Forest Foundation that works to reduce ocean pollution and create awareness about waste segregation and recycling while working towards making Thiruvananthapuram a Carbon Neutral Capital. We are also a part of the UNGPML (United Nations Global Partnership on Marine Litter), which is a sign of recognition of our work toward eliminating marine pollution.
