Part of our commitment to expanding our impact is through donating to environmental organisations that align with our ethos. We ensure that our donations help fund projects that are integral to the preservation and regeneration of the Australian landscape.
We have chosen to donate to Bush Heritage because sustainability stretches beyond carbon emissions. It needs to encompass land preservation, supporting indigenous management of natural spaces as well as wildlife preservation. We know we are a small business and there is only so much we can do to help the environment. For us, this is an important way we can extend our impact.
Bush Heritage is a not-for-profit that buys and manages land for conservation and partners with Indigenous groups and other landowners
(such as farmers), to help them plan and achieve conservation goals on their land as well.
When we donate, we know the money received is being spent in Australia, for all Australians. Bush Heritage is dedicated to working side-by-side with Traditional Owners implementing the respect, listen, and learn approach to benefit our land.
Sustainable Living Fabrics acknowledges the Wurundjeri as well as the Boonerwrung people of the Kulin Nation as Traditional Owners of the land on which we work. We pay our deepest respect to the Elders past, present and emerging. We extend that respect to all Traditional Owners across Australia and acknowledge that sovereignty and land were never ceded.

Sustainable Living Fabrics has supported the work of Greenfleet since 2006. This long standing support enables us to go beyond carbon neutrality and support organisations doing incredible work. At the beginning of our sustainability journey we were donating to Greenfleet to offset our carbon emissions.
Even though we have achieved our carbon neutral status through Climate Active, our donations to Greenfleet continue. This means we can still support their incredible work regardless of our carbon neutral status. Greenfleet is one of the ways we give back to the community.
Greenfleet is a leading not-for-profit environmental organisation on a mission to protect our climate by restoring our forests. They plant native biodiverse forests to offset carbon emissions on behalf of individuals and businesses to help fight the impacts of climate change.
Since 1997, Greenfleet have planted more than 9.4 million native trees across over 500 biodiverse forests in Australia and New Zealand. Greenfleet forests address critical deforestation, capture carbon emissions to protect our climate, reduce soil erosion, improve water quality and restore habitat for wildlife, including many endangered species.
