24 Feb GDA: Planting Trees For Meetings
GDA – Global DMC Alliance has embarked on a mission to fight climate change by planting trees in support of the The Great Labyrinth of Africa project.
This February, the global dmc network, has planted 150 trees on a farm in South Africa as part of the biggest 13 circuit tree labyrinth in the world.
“Planting our 150 trees will go a long way to lessening the carbon footprint of delegates visiting our stand at travel trade shows – the most recent being IBTM in Barcelona. Reducing our carbon footprint is a critical worldwide issue and we hope this small step will encourage others to do the same,” says GDA Director Matthew Scicluna.
Here are 10 reasons to plant Spekboom in your homes, a little carbon sponge plant:
- Easy to grow
- Sequesters or captures 4 to 10 tons of carbon per hectare turning it into plant matter
- Photosynthesises 24 hours a day (other plants only do this morning & night)
- Fights air pollution & improves the quality of the air we breathe
- Stops soil erosion
- Proudly South African plant
- Water wise
- Is fire resistant
- Helps fight climate change
- Edible (how about a Spekboom salsa!)
