GMA (Green Meets Africa) is the brainchild of Plettenburg Bay, South Africa’s Martin Korver. Martin is the original conceptualist of many startups in Southern Africa, including Greenmouse Africa which was established in October 2020 during COVID lockdown with the idea of bringing sustainable and recyclable “must have phone accessories” into Africa. This subsidiary of GMA is in full Partnership with Greenmouse Netherlands, designers & supplier of the accessories.
Korver and his business have been approached by various commercial businesses and have seen the need to “go Green” in Southern Africa for the phone accessories market. After extended market research, there was a clear niche from a value perspective that there was a big opportunity for the “Buy Smart Buy Green” concept, as minimal packaging is used, and 80% recycled plastic is used for our products. This made Martin and GMA decide to become the most available and sustainable phone accessories brand in the Southern hemisphere and world.
Korver’s mission is to provide green alternatives in Africa and share his wealth of experiences and knowledge with others.
