“To make up for the world’s loss of trees in the past decade, we need to plant about 14 billion trees every year for 10 years in a row.” UNEP. In South Africa, we need to plant trees as we are part of the global problem. We also need to address disparity – there is a huge divide between ‘leafy’ privileged and ‘barren’ under-privileged areas. Without a culture of planting trees in under-greened areas, environmental and social challenges are exacerbated.
What we do?
Greenpop plants trees and invites everyone to join the treevolution, see inspiration instead of gloom in the green space and create innovative and sustainable solutions. We pride ourselves in making green living fun, educating people on best practice tree care, monitoring our trees and ensuring that together we leave a lasting legacy.
Why it counts?
We live in built environments and it’s easy to lose touch with the fact that we live on earth and it sustains us. Getting our hands into the soil reconnects us with nature. Tree planting has benefits that reach far beyond carbon sequestration - different cultures, races and ages come together to do something that benefits all.
