How your purchase helps.
We're very proudly supporting Greening Australia and the incredible work they do (and have been doing since 1982) to help them create Australia's biggest carbon sink, storing over 3.3 million tonnes of carbon each year.
We're donating 5% of every sale to help Greening Australia maximise their impact between now and 2030, with projects demonstrating conservation on a massive scale, from our Great Barrier Reef to my home, the island ark of Tasmania, covering millions of hectares of land and protecting hundreds of native plants and wildlife. We're donating funds from every sale to help restore and protect our breathtaking, unique (and vulnerable) natural Australian habitats.
What we’re doing to create change.
The reason we wanted to donate a percentage of each sale (not a percentage of 'profits') is so that we can be completely transparent about the amount of money from your purchase that YOU will be donating to Greening Australia. Wanting to plant trees and have a real and tangible impact on our environment is the reason we started Ramble Folk in the first place, so we always new that we would be donating a high percentage. Our aim is to help Greening Australia to create the massive impact needed over the next 10 years, so the standard 1% was simply not going to cut it for us!
Your Ramble Folk purchase is already being super cool to our environment. We create reusable eco products from upcycled, repurposed, scrap and leftover materials mostly sourced from op-shops, and every new product we design has the same mission in mind: To normalise, embrace and beautify the middle 'R' (Reuse). We design and make everything we sell right here in Australia, and we support other Australian businesses that are doing incredible things for our environment too, by having our recycled packaging designed, made and printed onshore.
We're committed to making, packing and shipping every single order PLASTIC FREE and delivering your upcycled, Aussie made products to your door in a home compostable mailer.
Why we chose Greening Australia.
Basically, we want to plant trees. We want to help plant as many trees as possible, and support those incredible individuals and organisations who are working to do all they can for our climate leading up to 2030. Greening Australia is the country's leading environmental enterprise, and on World Environment Day 2021, they announced that they've 'joined a consortium of Fourteen Australasian environmental organisations collaboratively working to support the recommendations of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration'. This decade marks the timeline scientists have identified as the last chance to prevent catastrophic climate change. Greening Australia remains committed to restoring Australia's fragile and diverse eco systems in ways that work for communities, the economy and the environment.
Greening Australia's 'Vision 2030'.
The 5% contribution we make from your purchase goes directly toward supporting Greening Australia’s 'Vision 2030' - to plant over 500,000,000 native trees and shrubs, restore 330,000 hectares of habitat, store over 3.3 million tonnes of carbon each year, protect our Great Barrier Reef by stopping 400,000 tonnes of sediment each year from polluting it, and restoring 10,000 hectares of wetlands in the reef catchment. You can read more about their programs and 2030 goals here.
How you can help.
In addition to your purchase with us (well done legend) you can help in many other ways too. Greening Australia needs volunteers across the country. You can also make a single or regular monthly donation or you can subscribe to their newsletter to be kept in the loop with how your donation is making a difference.
Also, incase you haven't heard already from that annoying website pop-up thing, if you sign up below to receive our emails, we will also donate $1 to Greening Australia as our way of saying thank you for trusting us with your email... we promise we won't get weird. How easy is that! :)
