So it’s that time of year again when you start thinking about Christmas presents. I know every year I try think of something to buy my parents that they will like appreciate and actually need. I realised a while back that whatever they need they will buy themselves and how many bottles of wine or nice sounding chutney can you actually give. So I’m thrilled to discover the Greenpop present initiative.
Greenpop’s philosophy is simply put; planting trees helps. Or in their words:
Planting trees, changing lives
and deforested areas with the aim to spread environmental awareness, uplift under-greened communities, make greening enjoyable and combat climate change.
What they do for you is they plant either an indigenous tree for R75 or a fruit tree for R100 in schools and communities. They then send you a certificate with the co-ordinates of the tree.
