Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu on Friday urges all to plant saplings of trees to save the planet from environmental degradation.

"There are huge environmental and economic benefits of trees... Trees give us oxygen as well as maintain ecological balance," he told a rally in the city on the occasion of the Earth Day, an official release said.

Local Non-Government Organization (NGOs) including Green Bangla Coalition organized the rally in front of the Jatiya Press Club.

Inu said "Everyone should plant and nurture trees to safeguard our environment as well as ensure our economic solvency".

As Bangladesh already is facing adverse impacts of global climate change, it needs to take adaptation measures to deal with climate change challenges, the minister said.

He stressed the need for working at local, regional and global levels to protect Bangladesh from environmental ruination caused by global climate change.

Earlier, the minister inaugurated a clean campaign programme in city's Sadarghat area.
