About the Green Belt Movement

The Green Belt Movement is a non-profit grassroots non-governmental organization (NGO) initiated by Wangari Maathai. It's mission is to restore the environment and improve the quality of life for the people through the planting of trees.

From its inception in 1977 the Green Belt Movement has planted more than 40 million trees across Africa with the help of 100 thousand mostly women volunteers. Not only has it played a crucial role in environmental awareness and protection, but has also contributed to raising the social status of women and the propagation of democratic values. donates part of the sales of MOTTAINAI goods to the Green Belt Movement.
