THE GREENPOP REFOREST FEST
Posted: Apr 08 2016
The Greenpop Reforest Fest kicked off on the weekend of the 18th - 20th March. It was a festival filled with great music, a range of fun + educational activities and of course a massive collective tree planting collaboration.
"Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." Berthold Auerbach
A fantastic line-up of artists including Jeremy Loops, Warongx and Majozi performed at the festival that saw festivalgoers dancing and singing till dawn!
"Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land." Aldo Leopold
But apart from the entertainment, eco-workshops and talks were held about conservation and sustainable living, giving festival goers the opportunity to not only play but to learn as well.
“I was in my yard and thought that the tree was a living being. We take trees for granted. We don't believe they are as much alive as we are.” Ziggy Marley
We're honoured to be an official supporter of this great initiative. And as the proud owner of a beautifully crafted Houdt product, you’ll be happy to know that you’re also supporting the growth of trees in our world!
By the end of the festival, 850 Treevolutionaries got together and planted 8001 trees in the Platbos Forest Reserve! We think that’s pretty awesome!
