We’ve partnered with Carbon Neutral to plant a tree for every online order —
Please note our Plant-A-Tree Program has been put on hold as of March 13th 2020, until further notice. Thank you for your support over this time.
Our team have felt anger and incredible sadness, but we are also more inspired than ever to take action to reach our environmental goals.
Beginning February 1st 2020, we have joined Carbon Neutral’s Plant-a-Tree program. For every online order we place, a tree will be planted in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor.
Carbon Neutral is Australia’s largest biodiverse reforestation developer and manager.
Their Plant-a-Tree Program allows us to plant a tree for every single order we post out to you, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, at a cost of $2.75 each + GST.
This aims to restore landscapes and reproduce natural ecosystems, habitats for native animals, enhance biodiversity, as well as supporting local businesses and employing local people, including workers from Aboriginal communities. It’s an amazing program, and one we’re proud to be a part of.
We purchased an initial order of 380 native trees and shrubs, and will continue to plant more every month as we receive more orders.
Based on our average yearly online orders, we hope to help plant more than 2000 trees each year in the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, which is a 200km stretch of trees and other plant life, reconnecting coastal and drier inland habitats. The trees that we help plant bring many valuable benefits to the environment including:
— Sequester carbon
— Help reduce soil salinity,
— Help combat wind and water erosion,
— Enhance biodiversity, and
— Restore habitat for native animals
