The initiative namely “1 Heart 1 Tree” is started by Naziha Mestaoui. The most interesting part of this initiative is that if you want to participate in it, you can buy a virtual tree through this app and can add it to the Eiffel Tower. In simple words, a smartphone user can “plant a tree” on this landmark whenever they want.

The tower is normally visited by between 15,000 and 20,000 people a day.
