Every square metre of Marmoleum installed now contributes to restoring Australian native vegetation.
Carbon Positive Australia plants native trees and shrubs creating long term carbon sinks which in addition to capturing carbon provide habitat and protection of local native species.
Carbon Positive Australia is a not for profit organisation and uses the funds raised through donations and carbon offsets to plant native trees on degraded land in Australia. Carbon Positive Australia reforestation projects sequester carbon whilst helping to restore the landscape and conserve the natural biodiversity.
Carbon Positive Australia also conducts vital research about Australian natural bushland. Since 2001 they have planted over 5.4 million trees across 3,812 hectares and 160 sites. Carbon Positive Australia (formally known as Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund) helps individuals, families, and organisations to minimise their impact on the environment.
Their MISSION ... to assist the community to adopt a more sustainable approach to a healthy environment and to reduce greenhouse gas (carbon) emissions.”
Carbon Positive Australia restores degraded land in Australia back to its natural state by planting native endemic species of trees and shrubs. Seeds are collected and harvested locally to ensure plantings support the natural biodiversity of the local area.
Eurardy is a special place and part of the South West Botanical Province of WA, which outranks Australia's rainforests for species diversity. Before its protection in 2005, the Eurardy site was used as a pastoral lease of which over 2,300 hectares had been cleared for agriculture and grazed extensively for decades.
