Paying It Forward
We have partnered with i=Change to connect with organisations in Australia that are working to create a better future.
We donate $1 from every order on your behalf to one of three causes aimed at restoring the land and oceans that make up our beautiful landscape, and supporting Australians who need a helping hand.
Thank you for trusting to purchase with us, we are delighted to have you with us on our journey to giving a little bit back.
Clean The Seas
Over 160 million tons of plastic is produced each year to create single-use disposable items and packaging.
With no established system to close the loop, this has led to over 70 years of accumulation of plastics in landfill (40%) and the environment (32%), with only 10% being recycled. Plastics end up in waterways and oceans, breaking down into ever smaller pieces called micro-plastics, well known for entering the food chain through the water, air and food that we consume.
Seabin Smart Tech, similar to a rubbish bin X pool skimmer, removes floating plastics as small as 2mm, filtering 600,000L of water per day from oil and surface pollutants.
Seabin Foundation is the not-for-profit arm of Seabin Project, an environmental start-up tackling the marine plastic pollution issue. A Seabin is similar to a rubbish bin on land, but it has a top ring levelled with the surface of the water and a pump underneath, which makes it also similar to a pool skimmer. Seabin Foundation consistently engages with communities using citizen science and STEM lessons to drive environmentally positive behavioural change through education. Citizen Science is the foundation behind the database which in turn provides a tool for policy changes and litter prevention strategies.
Note: To ensure greatest impact, donations are sent to Seabin Foundation to support this and other related projects. This allows them to use their expertise to direct resources to be as effective as possible.
Support Mental Health
Around two million Australians live with anxiety, and around one million live with depression. Sadly, on average eight Australians take their lives every day.
Beyond Blue Support is available for all Australians to speak to a trained counselor at any time.
This service is experiencing increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic as more people reach out due to the effects of social distancing, isolation and employment insecurity.
Our trained mental health professionals listen, provide advice and counseling, and point people in the right direction to receive the support they need.
Bring Joy To Sick Kids
Every minute of every day a child is admitted to hospital. When a once-bright life becomes dulled by needles, hospital visits and painful treatments, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness and rediscover the joy of childhood.
There’s a Starlight Express Room in every children’s hospital in Australia. In these vibrant medical-free zones our superhero, Captain Starlight, brightens the world for seriously ill children and their families.
Through games, movies, performances and more, Starlight helps sick kids forget their illness for a while and get down to the serious business of having fun! Captain Starlight also brightens the otherwise clinical wards with daily ward rounds full of jokes, magic and laughter. There are over 160 Captain Starlights delivering joy around the country!
