Save Our Planet – Plant a Tree is a registered non-profit organisation with the sole objective of greening South Africa. Since establishment in 2012, we have made a significant impact on the environment by planting trees in rural areas. A primary focus of our organisation is to educate our youth on the importance of planting trees and looking after the environment.
With the assistance of our sponsors we give on average 1500 school children tree gifts on a monthly basis. By educating our youth and encouraging them to plant trees from a young age we hope to bring a change in mind-set for the future.
We also plant large sustainable trees with a height of 2 to 3 metres mostly in rural schools on behalf of sponsoring companies. By planting these larger indigenous trees it makes our project more sustainable as these trees have a higher survival rate in our harsh environment.
We provide a transparent greening platform to enable your Company to spend its funds with the peace of mind that your contribution will directly translate into the planting of indigenous trees where needed. Together with our implementation partners Willow Feather Farm and Sam Mnguni Environmental Services, we will ensure that you are able to leave your own living legacy.
We look forward to partnering with you to do our part in ensuring that our beautiful planet is cared for, for the sake of future generations!
