Preserving the Planet
Spec-Savers engages with hundreds of thousands of South Africans every year. Spec-Savers, together with the Wilderness Foundation, initiated the Spekboom initiative. Spekboom has enormous carbon-storing capabilities. Its capacity to offset harmful carbon emissions is equivalent to that of moist, subtropical forest.
The vision is to tap into the international carbon market and thereby restore hundreds of thousands of hectares of degraded thicket, provide tens of thousands of jobs in the process and create a source of income for rural communities for many decades. They plant a Spekboom with every Climate Eyes purchased, this plays its part in offsetting your carbon (car etc.) emissions.
