South Africa faces various environmental issues, from global warming, a decline in biodiversity to air and water pollution. Even though we know these problems exist, itâ??s easy to be overwhelmed and feel lost as to what to do. Fortunately we can protect the environment every time we shop by simply swiping a MyPlanet card.

MyPlanet is a fundraising initiative which supports organisations like Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in fighting global warming and conserving our natural environment.

Each time a MySchool, MyVillage or MyPlanet card is swiped at a participating retailer, up to 5% of the purchase value will be donated to a beneficiary of the cardholderâ??s choice. Best of all, it wonâ??t cost to you a cent!
