With Christmas seemingly around the corner, ‘tis the season to start thinking about the perfect gift; one that truly matters.
Non-profit organisation Greenpop, focuses on reforestation and (re)connecting people to nature and this Christmas they’ve picked-out a unique and personalised gift that will also stand the test of time. A tree!
By donating only R140 to help plant an indigenous tree in one of their urban greening or reforestation projects, the organisation will give you a laser-cut bamboo key ring (Tree Ring) to give as a gift or stocking-filler.
Each Tree Ring is personalized with the engraved GPS coordinates of its corresponding tree, so you’ll know exactly where your tree lives!
The initiative is great for companies and individuals looking to reduce their carbon foot-print by making our planet a whole lot greener this festive season.
It’s a win-win and if you’re more of a digital giver, Greenpop also offers e-Tree Cards that you can order online.
By purchasing an indigenous tree online for R120, a gift card with the unique coordinates of your gifted tree will be generated for you to send to your friends and family, letting them know you planted a tree in their name: http://bit.ly/GPgifttrees.
However, if you’re a more hands on kind of giver, Greenpop has you covered nonetheless. By enquiring on their website, you can pledge your holiday asking for donations which will go towards educating tomorrow’s environmentalists!
This will provide children, teachers and ground staff in under-funded schools the key information to create green spaces within their community; improving the environment and creating a sense of pride.
Every little bit will make a positive impact towards an important cause. All fundraising will be done through GivenGain. Get started by visiting: http://bit.ly/HolidayActivists.
