Ethiopians plant 350-million trees to fight climate change
Contributing to a greener environment helps the country and world
Everyone was seeing green in Ethiopia Monday as the Prime Minister, children and adults gathered to plant 350-million trees in 12 hours in a bid to fight global warming.
“Today, Ethiopia is set in our attempt to break the world record together for a green legacy,” Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed was quoted as saying by Aljazeera.
The task was taken seriously with some government offices and schools closed for the special day. And, it all comes after a Swiss study noted that planting trees was one way to fight global warming.
