The eco-country of Bhutan celebrated the birth of the prince in the most unusual way!
How could Bhutan, being the most environmentally friendly country in the world, having a carbon-negative status, celebrate the birth of a prince in a royal family? Of course, planting trees! Lots of trees!
In early spring, 108,000 seedlings were planted in honor of the newborn son of King Jigme Khesar Namgyal Wangchuk and Queen Jetsun Pema in the tiny mountain kingdom. The constitution of the state provides that at least 60% of the territory should be forested, and it is not only a country's commitment to an ecological lifestyle.
It is worth noting that Bhutan was not the first time surprised the world with such an epic event. In 2015, the country set a world record by planting nearly 50,000 trees in one hour.
