Fevicol Champions' Club (FCC), on the occasion of World Environment Day 2022, has planted more than 600 trees in different areas of Dhaka and Chattogram divisions. The FCC is an independent association of woodworking artisans supported by Fevicol, the leading adhesive brand in Bangladesh. This initiative was taken as part of the club's social responsibility activities.

The theme of this year's World Environment Day is One World: Living Sustainably in Harmony with Nature. In addition to celebrating the day with an event, the FCC took the initiative to plant over 600 trees in the capital and the port city. About 860 members of the FCC participated in the implementation of this initiative. 

The tree planting program was inaugurated by Khandaker Saifur Rahman, Head of Marketing, Pidilite Bangladesh, the makers of Fevicol. "It is essential to maintain the balance of nature," he said. "We applaud the FCC for taking such an essential initiative in protecting the environment, which is the planting of trees."

Mainak Dutta, Country Manager at Pidilite Bangladesh said, “This world is ours – it is the only world habitable to humans. So, it is our responsibility to keep it healthy. We are hopeful that the club will continue to work dedicatedly on environmental and social development with a view of making large-scale positive impacts across the country.”

FCC started operating in Bangladesh in 2019 with the aim of supporting the individual and social development of woodworking artisans. At present, the club carries out activities in Dhaka and Chittagong. FCC conducts various social work initiatives such as blood donation camps, tree plantation drives, and health awareness programs every quarter. This quarter's campaign was conducted as a continuation of such initiatives.
