The Naturool Co. Giving Back to Nature.

Lisa and Andrew were so concerned about plastic waste, they founded their own company to provide a solution. And then .. they purchased 100 native trees from us to plant on their behalf. An eco-couple walking the talk.

TREES PLANTED

100

Andrew and Lisa are the founders of The Naturool Co., a family venture that aims to inspire change. Their journey to create an environmentally friendly alternative to cling wrap began after a chance encounter with wildlife hurt by plastic pollution.

Seeing first-hand the impact of plastic waste spurred Andrew and Lisa on to change their way of life. They didn’t just reduce their use of plastic, but developed a natural and non-toxic product for the busiest part of the house (the kitchen) that won’t choke our waterways or pollute the soil.

 

We are trying to give back to nature by being conscious about our choices.

Andrew | Co-owner | The Naturool Co.

 

Introducing, a World’s First reusable, cling wrap in a roll! Its also multi-purpose, durable, eco friendly, recyclable, non-toxic, vegan, BPA & phthalate free. It’s the one wrap you’ll ever need for your food storage, baking and heating needs.

 

 

The one hundred trees were a mix of purposefully selected plants to complement the birdlife, insects, and other creatures who call The Grampians their home. The trees were also selected to survive the cold winters and dry summers the mountainous terrain experiences. They will grow to varying heights (tall and understory) to ensure a variety of habitats for the local wildlife.

 

The trees were planted as part of a large project to protect the river systems of The Grampians.

 

The trees will provide homes for many species including the extensive bird life found there. Given it is a famous area for bushwalking, you’ll often find many avid bird watchers (twitchers) hiding out on the trails, binoculars in hand and taking in the immense bird song. Grampians birdlife is vast and the many winged wonders you may come across include parrots (Galah, Crimson Rosella, Musk Lorikeet, Rainbow Lorikeet and Blue-winged Parrot), and cockatoos (Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Gang-gang Cockatoo, Long-Billed Corella, Little Corella, Yellow-Tailed Black-Cockatoo, even the endangered Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo).

 

Some of the unique birdlife found in Western VIC.

 

All these birds need different trees to survive, and we are thankful for the expertise of the Buloke and Northern Grampians Landcare Network in their support in helping to plant these trees. Here’s an interview, we recently conducted with Andrew Borg, coordinator of this network.


 

Here at Fifteen Tree, we share Lisa and Andrew’s passion for the natural environment, and through planting trees we are sustaining our future and that of our children. We are making a difference together.
