Since 2009, IALC-accredited English Language School Good Hope Studies has been offering volunteer projects throughout South Africa.
The school’s organisation ‘Good Hope Volunteer’ is now giving its volunteers a CHOICE if they would like a volunteer T-Shirt OR if they instead would like a tree to be planted in their honour in the Platbos Indigenous Forest outside of Cape Town.
Good Hope Studies are offering this green reward to its volunteers for a number of reasons:
- A flight from London to Cape Town emits 1.1 tons of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere.
- On average, one acre of new forest can suck up about 2.5 tons of carbon annually.
- If each passenger on a flight planted one tree, we could neutralise the effects of Carbon into the atmosphere.
If volunteers choose a tree they will be presented with a certificate from Greenpop and a thank you for leaving a legacy in South Africa!
Greenpop is a non-profit organisation in Cape Town, South Africa, working to restore ecosystems and empower environmental stewards through reforestation, urban greening, sustainable development, and environmental art projects across Sub- Saharan Africa.
IALC would like to congratulate Good Hope Studies for this incredible green initiative.
