#BeTheChange: The Spekboom Challenge

To show love for the planet and to close off February, Liberty Promenade is planting Spekboom plants at Mitchells Plain primary schools.

This February, to close off the month of love, Liberty Promenade has partnered with Soil for Life to sow seeds of love for the environment, while encouraging the community of Mitchells Plain to adopt climate-positive behaviours through the means of an environmental miracle plant – the Spekboom.

This week, the iconic shopping mall and the public benefit organisation planted one hundred Spekboom plants, and creating awareness around climate change at four local primary schools; Tafelsig Primary, Mitchells Plain Primary, Eastville Primary and Woodville Primary.

The #SpekboomChallenge, where people are urged to plant a Spekboom, has hit South Africa by storm and Liberty Promenade has proudly accepted the challenge and is thrilled to be able to involve the school children from these primary schools in this great initiative.

A Proudly South African Plant

The Spekboom (Portulacaria Afra) is a proudly South African plant making waves in eco-conservation. The hardy plant stores solar energy, attracts pollination, is water-wise and fights air pollution. Proven to absorb the highest percentage of carbon dioxide in comparison to any other plant on the planet, the Spekboom is undoubtedly a wonder-plant and is a great companion when moving towards a sustainable future.

“Liberty Promenade, under the Liberty Group and Liberty Two Degrees’ banners, has pledged to do business for good, whereby the environment is considered and climate positive operations are practised, taught and prioritised. We are humbled to be able to be the platform through which hundreds of Mitchells Plain youth are educated on the importance of conserving our environment for future years”, says Brian Unsted, Liberty Two Degrees’ Asset Management Executive of Liberty Promenade. 

Be the change with Liberty Promenade. Together we can be the difference.
