What is Greenpop?
Greenpop is an NGO on a mission to (re)connect people with the planet.
They plant trees through urban greening and reforestation projects, spread environmental awareness and activate people through green festivals and workshops.  Greenpop was founded in 2010 and has since planted over 70 000 indigenous and fruit trees at schools and other urban sites, community farms as well as forests across South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania.

The Benefits of SAACI members joining Greenpop?


Money does grow on trees!
Every R1 invested in tree planting can yield R2 to R5 in economic returns. It’s a solid investment; trees in urban and forest settings provide some of the most valuable ecosystem services in the world. As for education, it’s the best investment there is for the future of our country and planet!

In addition to the above incredible returns, working with Greenpop will also allow you to reap the returns below:

    • The Greenpop Foundation is a registered non-profit (NPO) and public benefit organisation (PBO) that issues donation receipts and a Section 18A Certificate at the end of the tax year to be used in your tax returns.
    • Greenpop has more than 75% black beneficiaries and is verified as a Socio Economic Development Beneficiary with contribution recognition of 100%. A company can thus claim the full value of their contributions to Socio-Economic Development (SED) spend.
