THE AL.IVE BODY TREE PLANTING PLEDGE

TREE PLANTING UPDATE!

On Earth Day, we visited Corey at the Yankalilla Community Centre who showed us where our 3,000 Drooping Sheoak seedlings have been growing. We got our hands dirty with the lovely team of volunteers, who showed us the process of transferring the seedlings, and where they’ll end up. Once grown, they will be transported and planted at Cape Jervis to provide habitat and food source for the Black Glossy Cockatoo. So far, thanks to you, we’ve funded the planting of 40,000 trees and have a new goal of reaching 50,000 this year. It was incredibly humbling to see how our little seedlings are flourishing to help keep our planet al.ive and thrive.

TREE PLANTING UPDATE!

We have recently completed the planting of our first lot of trees in Western Australia, this being the first project we worked on in partnership with One Tree Planted. We are now on to our next project, which we are excited to announce is right on home soil in South Australia. We will contribute to the planting of tree seedlings in The Yankalilla Community Nursery in South Australia, a bushfire recovery nursery supporting Australia’s recovery from the Black Summer bushfires. This nursery was established to grow local native plants for coastal community projects and recover species. Thanks to this project, they will expand their nursery and grow an extra 25,000 seedlings for bushfire recovery projects. We are looking forward to joining the Volunteer program and getting our hands dirty at the Yankalilla Community Nursery with our team in the New Year. Stay tuned!

TREE PLANTING UPDATE!

The planting of our first trees from our partnership with One Tree Planted is underway in Western Australia. The planting project in south-west Western Australia will be carried out June to August 2020 where a total of 51,241 trees will be planted across 9 sites. It’s a very special region, as an international biodiversity hot spot, and these plantings are focused on habitat restoration for native animals. The seedlings will be distributed between a wetland at Lake Toolibin which offers important habitat to a number of migratory birds yearly, and a further seven sites to create and improve habitat for the critically endangered Western Ringtail Possum, with the remaining being used to create a wildlife corridor. Unfortunately the Covid-19 restrictions meant that our team, volunteers and the community were unable to attend the planting, but fingers crossed we will be at the next one , which we can’t wait to update you on as it is focused on Bushfire Recovery. Since the new year bushfires - which destroyed 15 million acres of bush, decimating native wildlife habitats - it’s become an urgent priority, and we can’t wait to see these areas come to life. Stay tuned!

WE’LL PLANT AN AUSTRALIAN TREE FOR EVERY PRODUCT YOU BUY

The natural world is in crisis, brought into sharp focus by the recent devastating bushfires across Australia.

It will require us all to unite as one conscious, determined force to secure the stability of our future for generations to come. It feels like a mammoth task but when we focus on the small things we can do in our everyday lives, we can lessen the overwhelm and reduce our impact on the planet.

Not only is our range sustainably produced, we’ve pledged to plant a tree with every product purchased online or via our stockists, and our vision is to plant a forest of trees in Australia.

OUR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT

WHY PLANT TREES?

Reforestation in Australia has always been crucial. Since the new year bushfires - which destroyed 15 million acres of bush, decimating native wildlife habitats - it’s become an urgent priority.

The iconic koala is particularly vulnerable, as 30% of their habitat has been wiped out. One Tree Planted is aiming to plant 6 million trees in Australia this year, and we look forward to bringing you updates on the progress of our tree planting mission.

OUR TREE PLANTING PARTNERS

ONE TREE PLANTED

One Tree Planted is an environmental charity whose mission is to create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation around the world.

Due to the recent bushfire crisis in Australia, they have increased their work in Australia to restore wildlife habitat, create healthy ecosystems and help native vegetation to grow back.

Last year, they planted over 4 million trees around the world! Find our more about their great work here.
