Our commitment to our COMMUNITY
At Twizzle Designs, we believe that it's super important to commit to what we believe is important. So we're working to make it easier for you to do the little…
Sunday 31st July is National Plant a Tree Day. Started by Planet Ark, the National Plant a Tree Day has grown into Australia's largest community tree-planting event. 🌳 Choose a tree that suits your local area (check height!) and get your hands dirty on Sunday - planting a tree in your garden. Live in an apartment? Plant a dwarf olive tree in a pot on your balcony! Trees give us shade, are a home for native animals & birds, and a valuable carbon sink. Or maybe just go for a walk in a forest. 😀
In an Australian first, you can recycle your unwanted fishing tackle at all Queensland BCF stores in their “Rig Recycle” green boxes. They accept old, unwanted, or recovered fishing tackle and will dispose of it in an environmentally safe way.💚 This initiative has a significant impact in reducing waterway pollution. All the tackle placed in the bins will be sorted, recycled & given to charities. So help the waterways, and the environment, and drop off your old fishing tackle to a green Box. 🥰
Plastic Free July® started in 2011 in Western Australia. Now it’s a global movement that helps people around the world become part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can all have cleaner streets, oceans, and communities. Why not start small… choose to take your own plastic-free cup drink cup, to not use plastic drink bottles, and to refuse plastic straws when you’re out and about. Every little thing we do, does make a difference – especially when there are millions of us doing it! ♻💚
Today has the shortest daylight hours of the year and is a great time to celebrate dark and cold long winter nights! We like to enjoy some hot home-made soups with crusty bread, eaten around the firepit on the winter solstice. 🥣🌛 I make an exception once a year – because I live in Qld and DON’T like the cold winter nights! 😂 Maybe you’d like to also enjoy some delicious soup tonight – even if you don’t have a fireplace… and it’s heartening to know the days get longer again after today. ☀ .
One look at our website and you’ll know that Twizzle Designs is a very strong supporter of Australian designed and made products... And this is because we love Aussie businesses - and being able to support Australians who are working hard making a positive difference for our local communities. 💟 So get out there and discover what Aussie businesses have to offer – you may be surprised with what's available. If you haven’t met us before, we invite to come and visit our Aussie eco-gift store. 😊
Thank you to all those who ordered the delicious bilby chocolates this year. Just letting you know that we've made the donation to our second bilby charity - Save The Bilby Fund - to help care for the bilbies. And I'm happy to be passing on their sincere thanks to you all. 💟 I'm so grateful that. together, we've been able to make a positive difference for the wonderful little bilbies. 💖 Thank you. 🥰
A time to reflect and say thank you as we honour the bravery and sacrifice of the Australian men and women who have served our country. Today we like to pause and take time to reflect on how their sacrifice has made the world a better place today. We are very grateful that we live in a peaceful and lucky country. Our family tradition includes home made Anzac bikkies on Anzac Day - so I'm busy making them now for morning tea. 🍪☕ Do you have a family tradition for Anzac Day?
Thank you to all those who ordered the delicious bilby chocolates this year. We have now made the donation to the Austrralian Wildlife Conservancy to help care for the bilbies. Just sharing their thanks with you. 💟 I'm so grateful that. together, we can make a positive difference for the wonderful bilbies. 💖 Thank you. 🥰
Happy Easter 😊 Hope the Easter Bilby came by and left you and family some nice Easter choccies - and that you have a relaxing and enjoyable day. Looks like the weather is going to be pretty good, so maybe a picnic in the park will be tempting? Whatever you do, have an uplifting and positive day ahead. 💟
We just wanted to share with you that we're proudly supporting Greenfleet to plant trees and restore forests and bushland. They carefully choose trees and plants to suit the native fauna and flora in an area. And the forests are planted to grow for a minimum of 100 years. Their efforts make a huge difference. Because of their work, we can offset our (hopefully already smallish) business emissions in a positive way.
We love sending your orders in colourful, plastic-free, home compostable mailers. No wonder they call it Hero Packaging - it's saving tonnes of plastic from going to landfill! But there's more - you can reuse them once more due to their clever additional sealing strip. Then they can be composted at home. Got a worm farm - the worms love this packaging too! Zero waste.
Don't forget to switch off all your (non-essential) lights at 8.30pm local time tonight, Saturday 26 March. You'll be joining our family - and hundreds of millions of people in over 7,000 cities across 192 countries and territories - to support stronger action against climate change. 🌏 It's never been more important to come together to shape a healthy future for all people, and the environment. It’s just for an hour but it makes the world of difference… Thank you. 💚
At Twizzle Designs, we believe that it's super important to commit to our beliefs. We're working to make it easier for you to do the little things to help the environment - and your local community - and it starts with our business commitment to do the same. We are always on the lookout for actions we can take to make our footprint on the planet as small as possible - at work and at home. And to do the right thing by our community as well. Like everybody else, it's a work in progress!
