Alice + Ivy. Inspired by Nature.

The Alice & Ivy Cotton Company was created out of love. The love for family is written in the company name, which celebrates Great Grandma Alice and Great Aunty Ivy.

TREES PLANTED

75

Love is woven into Alice & Ivy Cotton Co‘s commitment to natural, breathable fabrics that support healthy skin. And the love of the environment is visible in the selection of natural colours and simple fabrics including cotton, Australian wool, and sustainably sourced bamboo.

 

 

Creative director of the company, Ally, has blended her skills as a commercial buyer and product developer with her yearning for natural simplicity to create a range of products to inspire healthy homes and lifestyles. Love is also driving her to minimise the company’s reliance on plastic. And any company who is taking plastic out of the production line deserves our recognition and support.

 

Trees for this project were sourced from the First People of the Millewa Belar Nursery.

 

The Alice & Ivy Cotton Co is also sharing its love of trees with generations to come by supporting Fifteen Trees with the purchase of 75 trees.

 

We love supporting sustainability at Alice & Ivy Cotton Co. Whilst we aim to use only recycled or compostable materials across our small business, it is not always achievable. To try offset our environmental footprint, we gladly support the Fifteen Trees community tree planting program.

Students from Carey Baptist Grammar School planted out some of the trees.

 

The trees were planted in the Mallee district of northwest Victoria at Raakajlim, A Mallee Conservation Sanctuary (490 ha) adjoining Hattah-Kulkyne National Park. The property is under management of Fiona and Phil Murdoch. This couple are preserving an important ecological area for numerous desert mammals, reptiles, birds and insects such as the Arid Bronze Azure butterfly. They are also designing and building water points and soaks as drought refuges for wildlife.

 

We are passionate about the environment and our vision is to restore a functioning, semi-arid landscape; a diverse habitat and sanctuary for threatened plants and animals.

Thank you Ally for your support. We are so grateful.

Fiona Murdoch | Manager | Raakajlim

 

Thank you to Ally for your generous contribution to a beautiful project out in the Mallee district of Victoria. And thank you too to Fiona and Phil whose love of desert regions has meant a huge tract of rural land is now under protection for generations to come.

Individual actions really do matter! Individually we can really only make small differences to the world around us, but collectively our numbers add up. And if enough individuals are involved then forests can be grown!

We have a handful of organisations who purchase trees when they can. These organisations are masters of ingenuity when it comes to incorporating tree planting into their business practices.

The Institute of Public Accounts has supported one of our revegetation projects by purchasing a tree for every attendee at their recent Victorian Conference held in Ballarat, VIC. The trees (70) were planted in the district, in the weeks following the conference.
