India: Newly-weds given potted plants in green drive

In a green drive, newly-weds get potted plants as gifts in certain districts in India.

The volunteers of a Pratapgarh-based NGO working for environmental protection are gifting flowerpots (gamla) with a sapling to newly-wed couples while visiting/attending wedding ceremonies in Pratapgarh, Allahabad, Rai Bareilly and Jaunpur districts.
