Skydive Plett goes green
By Shaun Smith

Planting trees is the easiest and most effective way to do something immediate to help the earth cope with excessive carbon in our atmosphere.

I recently met Tony Lubner who started the "Planet Green Ocean Blue” initiative, part of the O.R.C.A. Foundation (Ocean Research Conservation Africa). They measure your carbon footprint and then advise you on how many trees you will need to plant to offset this. You can choose to plant your own trees or they will plant them for you.


As a skydiving operation dependent on burning fossil fuels, we consider it our duty to offset our carbon emissions. To this end, Skydive Plett has planted 52 trees.
