To commemorate the birth anniversary of Guru Angad Dev Ji (2004) in an innovative way, the Kaar Sewa Khadur Sahib launched the environment conservation drive in 1999 and has been engrossed into various environmental projects till date. Under this drive, different varieties of trees have been planted beside roads, in parks, public places and villages of Punjab, Delhi, Rajasthan and Madhya-Pradesh in allegiance with govt. as well as N.G.O.’s. Especially ‘trio’ of Banyan, Peepal and Neem trees have been planted. Nurseries with modern advanced technology have also been established so as to facilitate the supply of plants. For plantation at road-sides and their maintenance, at least 50 persons and 12 water tanks have been deputed. The gardens keep environment more clean and green in aesthetical manner.
Under Baba Sewa Singh Ji’s patronage, the Environmental conservation project was the outcome for celebrating the Quincentenary Gurpurab of Sri Guru Angad Dev Ji uniquely during 1999. Roadside plantations work was undertaken on all the roads leading to Khadur Sahib. Over 4 lac, 66 thousand trees have been planted on roadsides, public places, religious places, parks, cremation grounds etc. A nursery with over one lac eighty thousand saplings and plants has been established, along with 12 water tankers and 50 volunteers to support this Environment Conservation project.

The environment conservation drive and other social projects started by Kaar Sewa have been given due recognition at National and International levels.
