Greenpop brings together communities and corporates to run urban greening and reforestation projects in South Africa and Zambia and have planted over 40 000 trees to date.
The facility aims to promote a variety of community projects, and in doing so hopes to make a positive impact in the lives of both customers and those less fortunate.
