To kick off our Under the Influence Tree-bate we set out as a team to plant spekboom at our year end function and at our new warehouse. This is truly a miraculous little plant, endemic to South Africa. Spekboom is one of the most effective carbon storing plants in the world. In fact, it is 10 times more effective at removing CO2 from the atmosphere than a hectare for hectare forest in the Amazon! Read more about this miracle plant here.
We were also really excited to have launched our Tree-bate program with Seedballs Kenya, with 48,000 seedballs donated for a conservative estimate of 9,600 trees to successfully grow from those carefully crafted seedballs. These will be distributed by Big Life Foundation in some of the most denuded areas of the Amboseli ecosystem.

We have only just begun, and we are excited to make a growing impact across the continent.
