SLEMAN Religious Office made an unlikely suggestion for a dowry, which recommends the groom provide plant seeds along with other sets of dowry. Chief of Sleman Religious Department Muhammad Lutfi Hamid stated that such a system had been proposed since January 1, as a manifestation of the one billion trees campaign.

Lutfi said the suggestion aims to promote green environment through reforestation. “If there are 6,000 marriages in a year, that means we can have at least 6,000 trees,” he said.

Moreover, Sleman Religious Office has also issued an instruction to Islamic schools for planting trees in the schoolyard. Chief of Sleman Environment Office Ephipana Kristiyani praised those measures, saying that the nature and environment should be preserved for the next generations.
