Arbor Week is celebrated annually in South Africa in the first week of September.
In June 2018 we partnered with Greenpop, a Cape Town based NGO, to contribute towards conserving and restoring ecosystems across Sub-Saharan Africa. Greenpop’s work includes planting trees and vegetation in urban greening and reforestation projects and, to date, they have planted over 100,000 trees. At Southwood Financial Planning we use quite a lot of paper, and while we are continuously making a conscious effort to reduce our paper usage, we cannot eliminate paper completely. By supporting Greenpop each month our aim is to balance out our paper usage with the number of trees that have been planted by Greenpop’s reforestation projects. We are proud to be sponsors of such an incredible organisation.
