Back To School, Let's Raise A Forest!

Back To School 2020

We are deeply saddened by the devastation bushfires burning around the country have had on communities, firefighters, wildlife and our natural environment. 

In due time, once the fires have settled and the land is ready to take on new trees, our environment will need all the help it can to regenerate and restore. 

So this Back to School period we're planting trees to help restore precious Australian bushland and wildlife habitat devastated by fires - please help us raise a forest. 

Buy any lunch box or water bottle from our Back to School department between 1 January and 9 February 2020 and apply the code TREE at checkout and we will plant a tree on your behalf.

About the cause & One Tree Planted

Australia is currently experiencing one of the largest natural disasters in history, with over 6 million hectares of bush devastated by bushfires, and around 480 million animals killed.

Biome has partnered with One Tree Planted to help regenerate areas in Australia affected by fires.

By planting trees, we will restore wildlife habitats and create healthy ecosystems capable of being resilient to climate change, which is critical as these areas are considered to be biodiversity hotspots.

Reforestation efforts will also assist native vegetation in growing back, while also improving soil quality, preventing erosion, and controlling invasive species - which can be particularly aggressive after forest fires without intervention.

One Tree Planted will plant various types of native trees and companion plants, depending on the specific needs of each section of habitat being restored. 

Trees will be planted once the fires have ended and the soil repaired and ready to take on new trees. By supporting this initiative, you will allow the One Tree Planted team to hit the ground running and repair our beautiful and iconic landscape as soon as possible.
