This journey started with Skills Train and WPO Plant a Forest campaign in June 2018.
We managed to successfully plant 30 trees at the WPO Plant a Forest Site, Klein River Cheese Farm, Stanford. This is something we are incredibly proud of as our social responsibility program.
Therefore continuing our successful campaign we are taking it to the next level.
We at Jewellers’ Network have decided to elaborate on this and bring environmental responsibility to The Industry…
Henry Ford said:
Coming together is beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.
In saying this we at Jewellers’ Network realise the importance of protecting the Earth’s Natural Resources. After all, without these resources, the Jewellery Industry would not even be a possibility. All of the materials our Industry depends on, come for Mother Earth.
We would like to invite our Advertisers and subscribers to take part in our 2019 endeavour and submit your insights and share your Environmental Responsibility Programmes and initiatives within The Jewellery, Diamond and Watch Industry in Southern Africa.
What is WPO* Plant a tree?
*Women’s President Organisation
It has been shown that deforestation of indigenous trees has a significant impact on sustainable ecosystems including water shortages. Trees and forests gift humans with selfless love by providing clean air, protection, food and support to the smallest and biggest of living plants, animals, insects and humans. Walk through a forest, and feel the difference in your energy, mood and well-being. Let us reciprocate the goodwill gifted to us by trees and forests by supporting the SA Reforestation. Trust in the endeavour to sell 10 000 trees
WPO Plant a Forest
The mission is to plant a forest of 10 000 trees, one pledge at a time – in support of the South African Reforestation Trust
Thanks to a trusted, approved and prepared area of land, best suited for indigenous trees, the Cape Overberg ecology can be significantly restored with this effort
Reaching farther together
The WPO vision of “Reaching Farther together” brings all the resource of the WPO members in South Africa to champion a project that will make a significant environmental contribution
