On the 14th of June Food & Trees for Africa and Cova Advisory planted trees at Tsosololo Ya Africa Secondary School in Tembisa. The school were happy to receive 40 trees, half fruit and half indigenous shade, to create an orchard at the school as well as shade for learners. School learners enthusiastically ran the tree planting programme and planted trees in honour of National Youth Month and National Environment Month.
These 5,100 trees will offset a whopping 1,881 tonnes of CO2 in their lifetime whilst contributing to an improved environment – providing all the benefits that trees provide. Ritchi Smith of Konica Minolta South Africa comments, “We should be concerned with our environmental impact every day, and that’s what KMSA is committed to do.”
