M Yoganathan, a bus conductor from Tamil Nadu, India has single-handedly planted over 300,000 trees in the last 30 years.
For the last 30 years he’s grown over 300,000 seedlings and given them to passengers so they can grow some nature of their very own.
He uses over 40% of his monthly income buying saplings and educating children and youngsters in local schools and colleges about the environment.
Popularly known as The Tree Man, Yoganathan has been felicitated for his work as an Indian environmental activist with awards like the Eco Warrior Award bestowed by the Government of India.
