Real Development Sustains Technology As Well As Ecology

Imagine world with environment. Can you? It is simply not possible. The oxford dictionary defines environment as, ‘the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives and operates’. GreenPro India strives at making this very environment the most suitable for a wholesome development of children. We specialize in playground and outdoor equipments that boast eco-friendly qualities. Looking at the fast paced life of today, development and technology is unavoidable. Although one can surely try to adopt a more sustainable and harmless technology and this is exactly where we come in to the picture. We also believe that environment is not just the surrounding, but we along with the other entire biodiversity make the environment complete.  Hence it is inevitable that we protect nature to protect our existence. The concept of World Environment Day was conceived on 5th Read more [...]

Happy International Children’s Day From GreenPro India

Greenpro India is the most excited to wish all the children a happy International Children’s Day. Although children’s day is celebrated on different days in different countries, the International Children’s Day was first proclaimed by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in 1925 and then established universally in 1954. This day has been observed in many countries as Children's Day on June 1 since 1950 and is celebrated across the globe to honor children and their innocence.

Hence this day plays an important role in spreading awareness regarding protection of children. Children need to be protected from working long hours in dangerous circumstances, sexual, physical and mental abuse, poverty and malnutrition; and Read more [...]

The Evergreen Garden of Selfless Love: A Mother

She is the one who knows all your secrets, even when you didn’t tell her. She is the one who forgave all your mistakes not before teaching you the right. She is the one who gave you all she had for nothing in return. She is the mother. The whole world celebrates the 2nd Sunday of May as mother’s day. This year it happens to be on 12th May 2013.

Work is Worth all the Respect: Happy Labour Day

International Labour Day is celebrated on the 1st of May every year. It is a day to celebrate and appreciate the labours in a society, who relentlessly do hard-work for the betterment of everyone else.  From construction works to clerks and everyone else whose rigorous labour sustains our economy and society is a labourer and deserves respect. Hence Labour Day is the day to show respect. Although the origin of Labour Day is unclear there are two stories. One that says it originated in New Zealand.  On 28 October 1890 thousands of trade union members and supporters organised parades in the main centres where even government employees were given holiday to be able to attend the parades and several private businesses were also closed.  Labour Day is said to be the result of spreading communist thoughts. Apparently Canada is also said to be the origin of this phenomenon as during the 1870’s Read more [...]

We only have one earth! Let’s make it our one love

Today is April 22nd, the international earth day. Out of all the international days that we celebrate this is the most popular and thoughtful day and celebrating it is synonymous to celebrating life in itself. Imagin what would we do without clean air, potable water and non toxic vegetation? What would we do without earth? We would simply not exist. In the rampant chase for money and development man has forgotten that with a planet and without the nature development remains a big joke and proof of Man’s stupidity. Earth Day hence is an earnest effort to keep us reminding of the direction we are heading and the direction we should be heading towards. In an UNESCO Conference in San Francisco of 1969, John McConnell initiated the concept and name of earth day. He suggested March 21 being the Earth Day as it is the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. In 1970 U.S Senator Gaylord Read more [...]
