The green campaign is meant to compel business houses to become more environment-friendly.

This year the campaign has lured over 7,000 volunteers from universities in the city.
Besides sharing information on green products and green companies that are environment friendly, the campaign calls upon youth to only buy products made by business companies that are working towards protection of the environment.
Volunteers have organized activities like bike riding to advertise the campaign, hosting green festivals in residential areas and programs to promote green products by ambassadors for the campaign.
Many discount promotional programs for green products will take place in supermarkets, especially in the Co.op Mart supermarket chain.
