GMA News: 1M coconut trees to be planted in Mindanao via Century Pacific, GCash, HOPE partnership

Female farmers comprise 40 percent of the farmers in the coconut tree planting program.

Some one million coconut trees are expected to be planted in South Cotabato and Sarangani in the next two years through a joint initiative of Century Pacific Food, Inc. (CNPF), mobile wallet GCash, and non-profit organization HOPE.

Billed as GForest, the project allows GCash users to use a feature on its mobile app to help the environment by using various GCash cashless services to gain "green energy" which can then be collected to plant virtual trees.

For every virtual tree planted, CNPF, GCash and HOPE will plant a real tree in southern Philippines.
