Greenpop Urban Greening: the year of 2016
Our last planting day of the year was at the Hague Primary in Delft, where we saw a very enthusiastic group of grade 7’s meet an equally enthusiastic group of Dutch students to plant 40 trees! We had the absolute fortune of meeting the wonderful Mr. Jerome America, a teacher from the school who shares our green ethos and enthusiasm! “This is a great learning experience for the children. They will learn something today that they will never forget; it is the lessons outside the classroom that stay with you,” says Mr. America, “The children will leave a legacy at this school that they will tell their friends and children about.”
This year we added Bokashi into our compost bins. Bokashi is an inoculated bran that forms part of the anaerobic fermentation process, thereby reducing smells and introducing a natural fertiliser to soil. We also, with much excitement, introduced a beehive to our nursery! Our nursery is looking better than ever and is a safe place to keep all our amazing trees before they find their permanent home!
Thank you to each and every person who contributed, volunteered and supported the mission to green the under-greened! 2016 is an incredible testament to how much can be done with enough passion! We hope that 2017 be just as fruitful!

This July, Greenpop has partnered with CAN DO! to explore the environmental impact of aluminium cans, and whether cans are a more sustainable alternative to plastic. In order to do so, we also have to investigate the impact of glass and plastic.
