Green Turn stalls on June 5th, where patrons adopted a sapling and
took The Green Oath to protect and nurture the same.

the cause. Well known Bollywood actor, Aditya Pancholi took The
Green Oath, adopted the sapling and lauded the initiative taken
by Zee Cafe. Veteran actors Farida Jalal and Akhilendra Mishra appreciated
the noble cause taken up by Zee Café. The Green Turn initiative
