PLANT A TREE
By 2020, in partnership with Earth Day Network, our tree planting initiative will have reforested hundreds of acres of rainforest and thousands of individual trees.
This means the rehabilitation of threatened ecosystems that without you, would never have been achieved.
Apart from the reforestation projects, by switching from single use plastics to a reusable lunch packing solution you have made an incredible step in the right direction.
Being too focused on the ideal can be the enemy of making progress in the now. But the steps we are taking today will encourage more and more people to make the small but easily achievable changes in their life, which when done together, will have a real impact on our environment.
Thank you for being a part of this important journey. We're all in this together.
Current Reforestation Project Map
Our planet is currently losing over 15 billion trees each year—that’s 56 acres of forest every minute!
Earth Day Network’s Canopy Project plants trees to benefit local communities, increase habitat for species, and combat climate change.

Aussie Ark is NSW’s largest independently owned and operated conservation organisation and is home to seven keystone species once found in the Barrington Tops of NSW. The vision of Aussie Ark is to establish a robust insurance population of Australian threatened, native mammal species such as the Tasmanian devil, Eastern quoll and long-nosed potoroo, suitable for semi-wild release into large, predator proof fenced sanctuaries in the Barrington Tops, for eventual reintroduction to the wild.
Additionally, their efforts are also protecting an abundance of native fauna already existing within the sanctuaries at Aussie Ark including, 50 species of mammal, 278 species of bird, 42 species of reptiles and 18 species of frog.
Their core activities include building insurance populations, fire management, feral cat & fox exclusion, feral herbivore control, weed eradication, bush rejuvenation, field science programs and wildlife translocations. In fact, they are the first conservation organisation to initiate a war on weeds, one that we will WIN! In addition to this, they are also the only organisation dedicating to restoring the flora and fauna of the Great Dividing Range, back to its pre-European settlement state.
Seabin Project provides practical and tangible solutions to reduce the plastics in our oceans which is one of the world’s greatest problems.
Seabin’s mission statement is simple: To live in a world without the need for Seabins! It may seem like a contradiction but at the end of the day, marine litter should not be in the water in the first place.
The idea was if there was rubbish bins on land, why not in the water? Over time, the scope of the project evolved into a comprehensive research, technology, and educational initiative with global interest and reach.
How it works: Water is sucked in from the surface and passes through a catch bag inside the Seabin, with a submersible water pump capable of displacing 25.000 Lph (liters per hour), plugged directly into either a 110V or 220V outlet. The water is then pumped back into the marina leaving litter and debris trapped in the catch bag.
The Seabin can catch an estimated 3.9 Kgs of floating debris per day or 1.4 tons per year (depending on weather and debris volumes) including micro plastics down to 2 mm small.
