A social organization by the name of Greenpop is making greening POPular by planting trees in Africa. Greenpop describes itself as the coolest environmentalist social enterprise in Cape Town, South Africa. Its creator film producer Misha Teasdale realized that his carbon footprint was unsustainable for the planet, so he created Greenpop, an organisation dedicated to repopulating the forests of South Africa.
Greenpop runs with the help of passionate citizens and organizations with years of experience in relevant environmental projects across Sub-Saharan Africa. These initiatives include planting and gardens in urban spaces, reforesting degraded areas, building capacity for climate change adaptation and inspiring future environmentalists through eco-education campaigns.
Teadale reflects on the difference between success and significance in the Greenpop documentary The Rise of Us, he states that he wants his life to be about significance. One day we are all going to die, Teasdale said, we are not going to think about how much money we had in the bank we are going to think about the people we care about, we are going to ask, “did I add more than I subtracted? Did I have purpose?”
Greenpop is growing a Treevolution- a world where people and nature thrive all together. With the help of people like you, they have planted almost 100,000 trees. Those trees provide daily benefits to 350,000 people in communities located in 3 countries. They need your help to keep planting trees, greening communities, and empowering environmental stewards across Sub-Saharan Africa.
