Stepping up to climate action.

Thank you to all the SME’s and organisations who chipped in for this revegetation project in Central Victoria. Your contributions all add up. 

TREES PLANTED

172

Recently 7 small businesses and organisations kicked in for trees, and their contributions have added up to 172 trees. And it is made more epic by the fact that they are small businesses. Being a small business ourselves, we know the challenges they face in keeping their venture afloat. Out of this act, an epic amount of Australian fauna – right down to the tiniest insects – will have new habitat and future generations of humans will have cleaner air to breathe.

We define ourself as a Sustainable Marketing agency, both in a environment/world and ongoing business sense. We  have stepped away from large agency practices who treat their clients as an account number, we believed that our community deserved a local company who represents their values and acts ethically and transparently. We support a number of local and national projects and companies (Fifteen Trees included), who align with our ethos.

When and how does data become complex?

  • How are emerging technologies redefining data complexity?
  • How have research methodologies adapted to deal with complex data?
  • How does complexity change as the volume of data increases?
  • How do we choose what data to collect, analyse and inform decisions?

These trees were planted in recognition of the panel giving up their time and sharing their expertise during the discussion.

All of the timber used for our furniture comes from sustainably managed forests. However, we don’t believe that it’s enough to just leave things as we found them, we want to leave the world a better place. That’s why we are pleased to say that with every furniture purchase you make with us one tree will be planted on your behalf.

The artists, creatives and crew of the ‘Bower’ project whose rehearsals and performances took place in Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney in November 2022 were delighted to support this tree planting project at Longlea, to off-set their air travel and encourage populations of local wildlife, particularly birdlife, to expand their territories in the area.

 

The trees were planted as part of a 300 vegetation project at Longlea, VIC by landcare member Jae Greene. They were a mixture of species indigenous to the district and included wattles (Gold-dust and Black), Drooping She-oaks, and eucalyptus (Redgum, Yellow Gum and Red Box). While the site had some remnants of Yellow Gums and Red Box, it had been cleared by past landholders and was in dire need of some serious revegetation work.

The trees will allow the local population of Sugar Gliders, possums, parrots, budgies, Honey Eaters and Spine-bills to expand out in their territory with more viable options for food and shelter.

 

A big thank you to those who chipped in for the trees. They are helping us restore this beautiful land in Central Victoria.

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.

70 TREES PLANTED

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.
