April 22nd is Earth Day, an annual celebration of the planet and its incredible importance. A green future is a prosperous future. In light of this, this year's theme for Earth Day is 'Invest In Our Planet' - to preserve and protect our health, our families, and our livelihoods. In light of this significant celebration for a considerably important cause, Australian Bush Flower Essences are on hand to discuss Earth Day, our company’s impact and the products that can encourage you to feel at one with nature.
Earth Day commemorates and raises awareness of environmental issues that threaten the sustainability of our planet and, ultimately, the livelihood of every species that lives here. The time we have to make drastic changes is minimal, and we need to restore nature and the health of our planet - whilst working to build both a prosperous and sustainable future for us all.
The Earth Day Organisation utilises a diverse range of events and charities to replenish the planet whilst building countries and economies encompassing a sustainable future.
ABFE on Earth Day
The nature of our work at ABFE means we work harmoniously with the natural environment; to make essences from the powerful healing flowers from some of the most incredible native wild botanicals Australia offers. In our essence making process, we are considerably conscious of mother earth and the spirit of the plants we are working with, and ensure our practises are sustainable for the plant and are careful not to interfere with the balance of nature.
There is minimal footprint on the planet with the making of the wild harvested Bush Essences. We have had feedback from many farmers saying they have kept virgin Bush land that they were going to clear as they realised through Ian’s work that doing so would have destroyed many healing plants. consequently many diverse ecosystems and green corridors have been saved over the years.
Some of our operational environmental practises at ABFE are: using eco packaging, from biodegradable bubble wrap and starch chips in packaging to sugar based eco packaging for skincare. We have solar panels on our roof, and use electrical company car; all our office lighting is run on LED; massive reduction in single use plastic, only recycled cardboard with no plastic coated varnish used in packaging, we use sea freight for international distribution.
