Here at YFC, we are serious about sustainability. And with Earth Day this Thursday 22nd April, we’re in the mood to honour, celebrate and give a loving hug to this amazing planet! As this year’s Earth Day theme is ‘Together, we can restore our Earth’, we figure now is the perfect time to highlight the Earth-loving sustainability efforts of some of our favourite local businesses. Read on to discover what these guys are doing to nurture the planet and help secure our future - it’s pretty cool.
Ana and Sven from Amber Drop Honey are not your typical beekeepers. After learning about the global decline of bee populations and the devastating impact this could have on our food supply chain they sprang into action. Bees are arguably the most invaluable species to life on earth. Most of us admire bees for the honey they produce. But bees play one of the most important roles in our world today. Bees are considered as the pillars of agriculture for the important work they do in pollination. If you’ve ever enjoyed most fruit, vegetables and other crops you should generally thank the bees!
Earth fact: 84% of the crops grown for human consumption need bees to pollinate to increase yield and quality
Along with producing amazing honey, Ana and Sven also rescue hives that would otherwise be exterminated and give the bees a new home and nurture them. Plus, they give a small portion of sales to Save Our Bees Australiato help raise awareness.
The crew at Australian Organic Food Co are passionate about helping us make a difference to this world by creating yummy foods that have been grown locally and farmed sustainably - and it starts with the soil.
Earth fact: 95% of our food comes from the soil, yet industrial and chemical-heavy farming (pesticides, herbicides, and other fossil-fuel based fertilisers) has depleted over 1/3 of the world’s fertile soil.
With this in mind Australian Organic Food Co choose to work with farmers and producers who are 100% on board with soil health and use regenerative farming practices. The team says ‘change starts with your plate - so get eating!’, and we have to agree.
Not only do Will and Gabby from Community Refill create cleaning products without toxic nasties that actually work, their products come in packaging (mostly glass) that can be reused, refilled and/or recycled with ease.
We love Community Refill’s business mission to leave a positive mark on the world while keeping us clean and healthy!
Would you practice yoga wearing nothing but plastic bottles?? Sydney-based Dharma Bums make amazing activewear with sustainability top of mind, making recycled, durable fabric out of post-consumer PET bottles. These fabrics reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators – while using 85% less energy and producing 50% less CO2 emissions. For every 16-18 PET bottles recycled, Dharma Bums can make one pair of leggings!
Earth fact: A staggering half a trillion PET bottles are produced around the world, each and every year. Around 80 per cent of these end up in landfill where they take almost 500 years to break down.
The folk at Dresden Vision are on a mission to bring high-quality, sustainably made prescription glasses to anyone in the world, no matter where they live and how much money they have.
Their funky frames are made from recycled plastic, including plastic from discarded fishing nets!
Plus, in order to meet their zero-waste mandate, Dresden reuses excess dye-coloured plastic waste from their eyewear moulds to create one-of-a-kind transitional frames with blended colours - nice!
In NSW, more than a third of the waste we send to landfill is food. That adds up to about $10 billion worth of good food that’s being thrown away every year by NSW households! Love Food Hate Waste is all about helping households and businesses tackle the problem, for the Earth’s sake. Oh, and think of the money you could save when food isn't wasted!
We’d normally say it’s what’s on the inside that matters, but when it comes to packaging and sustainability, the wrapper is just as important! Grounded Packaging is all over it, promoting a shift away from society's current ‘single-use’ mentality by creating a circular economy system aimed at eliminating waste and promoting continual use of resources. They do this by
