In the past year, Guinness World Records has noticed that more and more brands are choosing to break the world record related to environmental protection to deepen people’s awareness of environmental protection, which also gives the record itself an important meaning.
Among them is a world record called [Most people plant trees at the same time], which has been broken twice by environmental volunteers in the past two years alone.
As early as 2018, the city of Portsmouth, Ohio broke this record for the first time: the city proposes to unite the community and work together to create a cleaner and healthier community.
At that time, 1405 volunteers gathered on the main streets of Chillicothe and Market Street, putting saplings of different varieties into single pots, and then distributing them around the city.
In addition to beautifying the community through records, activities such as painting lamp posts, cleaning roads, and dyeing bricks were held in the area.
This joint effort not only improved the greening and environmental atmosphere of the local town, but also helped raise US$100,000 for future eco-friendly projects.
Two years later, a team in Udaipur, India decided it was time to challenge Portsmouth’s record.
In the end, 4,035 volunteers of various ages broke this world record for benefiting the earth with nearly three times the results.
This activity was led by Prince Udaipur, who wanted to plant as many trees as possible on his birthday to compensate for the reduction in vegetation caused by natural disasters.
Although we are not currently under the latest record-breaking plan, we hope that anyone who hears this record will have the motivation to continue to protect our planet.
