Stoke Design is a Ballarat based IT company that takes sustainability seriously. This comes from a genuine commitment to running a small carbon footprint business. Stoke Design aims to reduce excess consumption, recycle where they can and looks at the broader issues of responsible partnerships and supporting community projects.

It’s simple really: for this innovative and creative team, the 3 pillars of business are people, planet and profit.

 

Supporting tree planting projects is just one way Stoke Design helps out local community.

 

This year, as an end of year thank you to customers, Leigh Ericksen and team posted out these beautiful cards (on recycled paper of course) and arranged through us the planting of 65 trees (plus tree guards). One tree per customer.

 

Evolution Photography & Events thank you for letting us share this image! PS here’s another fabulous eco-company!

 

The trees were planted by Nick McKinley from Leigh Creek Landcare. The LCG is a network of eight Landcare groups in the Corangamite region of South West Victoria. For over 20 years this group have been bringing together members of the community to maintain, protect and repair the fragile environment in our landscape.

Our Landcare Groups and landowners have and continue to deliver numerous projects on farmland, urban, public land, and small semi-rural properties. The results show that landholders, working together with the community and with the support of government initiatives we can delivery significant and manageable habitat change

In total, our network covers an area of 890 square kilometres, within the catchments of the Yarrowee and Leigh Rivers. The Leigh Catchment contains a diverse range of topographic features from gently undulating hills, wide valleys and river flats, to steep escarpments and rocky gorges.

Our catchments support areas of significant remnant native vegetation including forests, woodlands, grasslands and wetlands which provide important fauna habitat values.

Thank you to Fifteen Trees and Stock Design for these trees. They have formed a part of a bigger project that aims to revegetate vast areas of the Leigh Catchment basin.

It’s perhaps not surprising that a company specialising in efficient systems should understand that it is, in itself, part of a system. A social, economic, and human system, one that ultimately needs to recognise its environmental stewardship role in order to prosper. We are glad that Stoke Design takes its responsibilities seriously and applies them to its own business practices, and more than happy to help it reduce its impact by planting trees.
