About Vertical Gardens


The word Green symbolises environment, while plastic represents a necessary-evil in this era of modernization. Generally, the words ‘green’ and ‘plastic are seen opposite to each others in terms of their end-use and impact. Plastic is being thought of as a product which kills environment while green improves and sustains life.

We, the Team Income-Tax, Ludhiana tried to use plastic for the purpose of greenery, this way creating and coining a new-idea of Green-Plastic Initiative. Also, unlike conventional way of doing greenery in which plants are grown on the surface of the earth, we planted the plants on the wall. This technique is known by various terms like ‘vertical-garden’, ‘hanging-garden’, ‘green-wall’ or ‘wall-garden’.
