Priyanka Chopra: The National Green Ambassador

Priyanka Chopra is now a day’s most of the time in news for her forthcoming show, Ktharon Ke Khiladi or because of launching her website. After adding UNICEF’s crown, the actress has added one more coronet on her head by becoming the national green ambassador to initiate eco-friendly campaigns in India.

The Forest Minister Jairam Ramesh made this announcement yesterday. He stated at a press conference held yesterday in Delhi,

“I have been talking to Priyanka about how she can be a part of environment friendly campaigns nationally and be involved with projects such as tiger conservation and river cleaning, especially the Ganga river. I have said that this would be like her public service.”

“She (Priyanka) has been very kind and has given her consent for it.”

Excited Priyanka was happy after becoming the national green ambassador, she said,

It was small efforts by individuals that go a long way in keeping the surroundings clean and green. I would never want that my children or grandchildren don’t see forests or not go for picnics in gardens. People should not throw tissues and garbage on the streets. Small things do make a difference”
