Greenpop’s Reforest Fest is South Africa’s premier eco-festival where attendees not only have a blast but help heal our planet while doing so.
Since 2011, Reforest Fest attendees have planted between 5,000 and 10,000 indigenous trees each year, and the event contributes towards Greenpop’s Uilenkraal Forest Restoration Project which aims to restore degraded forest patches at the Platbos Forest Reserve and Bodhi Khaya Nature Retreat.
So far, the project has planted a total of 105,645 trees, restoring forest habitat and furthermore helping to preserve and expand a forest that is home to many incredible, often endangered, species, such as our elusive apex predator, the Cape Leopard.
This year Greenpop got even greener by partnering with Hemporium to add some sustainable hemp elements into the mix.
Hemporium showed how versatile hemp can be by sponsoring a wide variety of items including aprons for bar staff, t-shirts for the technical crew, soaps for the wash stations, and textiles and twines used in making the Hemp Stage decor.
