It is an undeniable fact that we have reached a point where we need to urgently halt the unprecedented destruction of the earth’s finite resources in the name of advancement. It is our view that each of us must begin to make conscious decisions as to what we will do as individuals, as families, as companies, as communities to show that we understand the need to reduce our wastage and our foot print for the sake of our children.
It is with this in mind that we at The Success Academyand in conjunction with Willow Feather Farm are embarking on a project entitled “Save our Planet – Plant a Tree.” This initiative we hope will kick-start a continued conversation and awareness around these issues and the need for us to live in harmony with Planet Earth.
Over the next 5 years we are going to donate 150,000 trees to the residents of Pretoria and encourage them to help us plant these trees in their communities. In addition, we will be involving various schools with this, giving a tree to each child so that together with their parents they can learn how to plant a tree and care for it while it matures.
We also feel it is important to learn that being involved in something bigger than our immediate family is also important. To help with this, we are going to run a campaign where residents and children can become involved with greening their communities. In addition to giving residents and children at the schools around us a tree, we are also going to run an additional promotion where we will provide a tree to a school or suburb for every 10 people that register here to receive updates on this project and how you can help.
So, for example if your school has a thousand pupils, there is a potential 100 trees that could become eligible for planting at the school if the pupils’ parents register for updates.
On this site we plan to share information on sustainability, recycling, and other greening and environmental initiatives, creating an education portal that we hope will be of huge value for both children and adults alike.
We look forward to partnering with you to do our part in ensuring that our beautiful planet is cared for, for the sake of our children!
