Plastic Free July has been an incredible success for our #BioPakHeroes - with over $2000 raised for a great charity (WWF) and more awareness raised for a pressing issue (the proliferation of plastics in our lives).

There is no 'Planet B' and thus why 3 team members have taken on the Plastic-Free July Challenge. The plastic we mindlessly generate and consume through our lifestyles has a permanent and adverse effect on our planet. In an effort to raise both money and awareness, the BioPak Heroes chronicled their month-long journey on EverydayHero.

We had the chance to catch-up with the team and hear first-hand how they found the month overall and their key takeaways.

We have expanded our ‘1% of profits donated to rainforest protection’ program to contribute to the wonderful work of the leading independent conservation organisation in New Zealand: Forest & Bird. Forest & Bird is the voice for nature, working to protect and restore Aotearoa's wild places and the wildlife that call them home. BioPak is proud to support Forest & Bird’s campaign to stop the spread of kauri dieback disease which causes the kauri tree, an ancient and spiritual tree native to New Zealand, to starve.

Rainforest Rescue Update

A Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo spotting, leaf litter research, and the powered up native nursery are all in this month’s Rainforest Rescue blog update!

We are pleased to officially join the global community of forward-thinking companies adapting to a more socially conscious business world.

As a responsible business, we have an obligation to preserve and protect the environment and to give back and support the communities in which we operate. We donate our time, energy and 1% of all profits to environmental restoration initiatives with Rainforest Rescue, a not-for-profit organisation that has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since 1998. Our partnership has flourished since 2012 – together with our customers we have contributed to the protection of 4 hectares of rainforest and the planting of 10,500 trees.

This means we have purchased carbon credits to compensate for the unavoidable green house gas emissions created through the production, transportation and disposal of our products. Carbon credits fund renewable energy or tree planting projects that reduce of remove greenhouse gas emsissions from being relased into the atmosphere. We fund The Wulabo Wind Power Project in China, through The Carbon Reduction Institute.
