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 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.
Over the past two years we have managed to plant over 12,000 trees/shrubs and plan to plant many more in 2021 and beyond, thank you for choosing CO2 neutral Marmoleum flooring.
