The Big Favour celebrates 100 years of sustainability

"5 June marks World Environment Day, and just as promised, I am doing my biggest Big Favour yet. 100 trees will be delivered to 100 schools" - Damon Beard.

Today is the day!

Thanks to the incredible help from Mondi, The Durban Botanic Gardens, Reaction Unit South Africa, and Key Pinetown, I am delivering 100 trees between 6h00 and 18h00 to commemorate World Environment Day.

The trees, donated by Mondi, are being stored at The Durban Botanic Gardens. The Durban Botanic Gardens Trust will also give each of our 100 schools their copy of The Durban Forest for their libraries.

Today is not only a day to celebrate our environment, but also a day to teach our future generation the key lesson of sustainability. 

Take a look at how the day is going:
