Plant Trees, Save the World. With Greenpop
September is Arbor Month in South Africa, so get involved.
Posted: Aug 21 2019
South African-based environmental organisation, Greenpop, calls for more tree planting action in response to recent studies.
South Africa celebrates Arbor month in September each year. It’s a month to focus on tree planting across the nation. Local NGO, Greenpop, is launching their bold new tree planting goal this month in response to the recently released studies showing that tree planting is the best way to mitigate climate change.
Greenpop aims to plant 500 000 trees by 2025!
This Arbor month, help Greenpop launch this new goal. In the month of September 2019, they want to set their bold new goal in motion and raise 10 000 trees in 30 days.
Since 2010, Greenpop has planted trees and worked on environmental projects across sub-Saharan Africa. They have planted just over 115 000 trees in the last 9 years in urban greening, reforestation and conservation agriculture projects. Their focus has been on connecting people with the planet, engaging communities and inspiring environmental stewards.
According to experts, we need to plant 1 trillion trees. “While this may sound unachievable, it is possible,” says Lauren O’Donnell, Greenpop’s Director. “There are thousands of tree planting organisations globally. If we all support our local tree-planting organisation - we have the potential to impact real change in the world.”
This Arbor Month, help Greenpop launch its new goal. In the month of September 2019, they want to set their goal in motion and raise 10 000 trees in 30 days. 1 tree = a donation of ZAR120.
You can be part of the solution.
Make a difference this Arbor Month by donating to trees. These trees will be planted in collaboration with local organisations across Sub-Saharan Africa. They will help fight climate change, restore ecosystems, and improve lives.
