28th February 2022: Businesses Doing 'Good'
View this email in your browser
Businesses That Live & Breathe Sustainability

Have you heard the term ‘greenwashing’ before?

It refers to those who make big claims about their eco-friendly credentials to make them seem more sustainable than they actually are. “Sustainable” collections from fast fashion brands like H&M, BP installing solar panels on petrol stations despite massive oil & gas spending… the list goes on.

That’s why who we buy from is just as important as what we buy. Look out for brands that run as social enterprises, donate profits to charity and are B Corp certified, to name a few. Business that gives back to the community and puts people and the planet before profits will always be a winner in our books! 

Read on for a few products from our favourite businesses who truly are doing good.

We love all of the products & generosity of BioPak. They are B Corp-certified and do so much to help the environment. Get your favourite food outlet onto sustainable packaging.
Stasher are B Corp-certified and are also members of 1% For The Planet, helping fund ocean restoration projects. And they have these amazing bags for all your food storage needs!

Weekly Inspiration

The fashion industry has been a notorious drain on natural resources like water and energy, but their recycling efforts haven’t been much better either! Luckily, Levi’s are making an effort to reduce their impact through a number of great initiatives.

Read more about it over at The Fifth Estate.

A fantastic initiative over in the U.S. repurposing corks into comfortable shoes!

Hopefully something we can see expanding into Australia soon to put used corks to better use.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed at the sheer amount of change needed to help our planet. There is hope, though! UNSW Sydney has identified a pathway to net zero by 2050 for Aussie residential and commercial buildings.

Learn more about their findings and let’s see what we can do to implement change.
