Our vision is to remove 5 million tonnes* of Co2 from our atmosphere every year, just with everyone owning 1 plant. Spekboom.
* This is the equivalent of reducing the population of the UK by 1 million people.
Each Spekboom tree can remove 100 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than a pine tree. The plant we send you will initially absorb around 8kg of Co2 per year and then up to 100kg of Co2 per year, once it’s grown into a metre-high bush.
All you have to do is grow one plant into an indoor bush and spread the word.
The more your plant grows, the more effective it will become!
The Spekboom Project aims to eliminate the Co2 emissions of 1 million people.
How do we do this? Initially, we aim to take 500,000 tonnes of Co2 out of the air. That’s a lot. It’s like removing 70,000 people from our population.
The project becomes more successful the bigger the plants become, as the larger the plant the more carbon it will absorb. By growing your plant easily into a bush (about a metre high), it will then be capable of absorbing around 100kg of Co2. Collectively that’s 5 million tonnes of Co2 and is the equivalent of removing almost 1 million people from the UK. We think that’s pretty epic.
