The Green Ticket is a Non Profit Organisation offering a one stop shop for corporate and individual concious living through carbon footprint offset options and enterprise development through reforestation, afro-forestry and food security whilst developing green collar jobs.
We aim to provide sustainable livelihoods and food security to communities by developing job opportunities, environmental knowledge and economies related to mitigation and adaptation, e.g. reforestation, conservation and the Carbon trade market.
Our re-forestation programme is ideally situated in Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route in the Western Cape, South Africa which is one of the most biodiverse areas in the world.
This is an evergreen afro-montane fynbos and forest region and is perfectly suited climatically to have authentication in carbon sequestration - The Green Ticket is however not geographiocally restricted.
Our carbon calculator conforms to the standards set out by the Green House Gas (GHG) protocol and will help you to work out the amount of harmful emissions deployed into the atmosphere and the amount of trees you need to plant.
We record and monitor all trees planted to ensure healthy growth and longevity.
The continued preservation of existing forests is our seed bank and the savior for our future forests.
Vanessa Haywood, ambassador for The Green Ticket:
"Having grown up on a farm and spending my days playing in fields and forests, I learnt to value nature and how fragile it is.
Being out in nature is where I reflect on life and "regroup" - it's my church. My sanctuary.
Humans are very quickly destroying what's left of our natural environment and in doing so, also forcing wild animals out of their natural habitat.
The Green Ticket are an amazing non-profit organisation that focus on re-forestation and reducing our carbon footprint. They also educate, empower and create job opportunities for disadvantaged communities! I am a great supporter of The Green Ticket!"
