As we head into the holiday season, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the year that’s been, and say thanks to our customers, our clients and our community. Your support over the year – and the past decade – hasn’t gone unnoticed.

Giving back is one of the key pillars of our business and something we embody as a company throughout all aspects of our operations. Thanks to your ongoing support, we’ve been able to give back in more ways than one – our Give Back Program has made a big difference this year.
 

BioPak is now NCOS certified, the Australian Government’s recognised standard. This is the 100th successful participant in the program. Whilst BioPak has demonstrated leadership in sustainability for years and have measured and offset their carbon emissions since 2010, they felt it was time to align with the robust government standard.

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.
