Plettenberg Bay, South Africa - April 25, 2022 - It is with great enthusiasm that Martin Korver, entrepreneur and Founder of Greenmouse Africa, announces that he is the subject of a new interview. The interview, which was conducted by freelance journalist Stefan Junge on behalf of an online periodical aimed at entrepreneurs and businesspeople, was published on April 12, 2022.
Early in the piece, Martin is asked how the idea for Greenmouse Africa originated. “I got a call from an old friend in Holland that had knowledge of the Greenmouse business in the Netherlands, and is a match maker of note. The Greenmouse business already had some success with this type of business. It’s something that had not been explored much here in Southern Africa, so that meant it was something that had the potential to become successful—and quickly, too,” he reflects, adding, “There are so many cell phone accessories available, but none are as sustainable as what we have created. We are providing something everyone needs but in a more sustainable way.”
Further along in the interview, Martin Korver responds to a question about a current trend that excites him, answering, “People are becoming more aware that we need to be sustainable and buy things that are more environmentally friendly. It is a very important aspect of what we, as a species, are doing right now and it’s important for the sake of all of our children. The younger generation has learned so much more about the environment and our impact on it than we did as children. They are more mindful and cautious about what they are leaving behind. It’s exciting to see and to be a part of.”
