Daintree Rainforest

Rainforest Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation that has been protecting and restoring rainforests since 1999 by providing opportunities for individuals and businesses to protect rainforests forever.

Rainforest Rescue projects re-establish rainforests through planting, maintenance, and restoration programs as well as purchasing and protecting rainforests. B-Alternative has purchased sections of land and helps support the Traditional Owners of Daintree Rainforest.

Half Cut

HalfCut aims to protect crucial forests for habitat for threatened and endangered species, protect Traditional Owners land titles, start mass tree planting projects.

 

HalfCut is a peer to peer, social and environmental movement that engages people to become ‘Halfcutters’ who are dedicated to the protection of the Daintree Rainforest. With half the world’s forests gone, Halfcutters do things by halves to represent the 50%+ of the world’s forests that are already destroyed.

​They do this by both shaving their face, or colouring or braiding their hair.

landcare 

Landcare Australia is a national not-for-profit organisation established more than 30 years ago that supports the landcare community with funding, capacity-building, on-ground projects, information, networking and promotion of landcare achievements.

 

B-Alternative partnered with Bass Coast Landcare Network to donate a percentage of all compostable packaging sales in the Bass Coast region directly to local region projects. Through the ‘Packaging for Plants Partnership’ we work to revegetate and restore local landscapes.

​People who ordered packaging through B-Alternative contributed to the regeneration of natural ecosystems on the Bass Coast, enhancing biodiversity, sequestering carbon dioxide, encouraging breeding of threatened species and constructing natural biolinks through the local area.

The Nature Conservancy:
Shuck Don't Chuck

A partnership between The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and B-Alternative, Shuck Don’t Chuck collects used oyster, mussel, and scallop shells from restaurants, venues, and seafood wholesalers, recycling them as a key component of TNC’s shellfish reef restoration projects. The program aims to reduce landfill waste while supporting marine biodiversity and contributing to the restoration of vital marine habitats. To date, TNC has restored 12 hectares of shellfish reefs in Port Phillip Bay, including in Geelong. These reefs are creating cleaner waters, more fish, and homes for hundreds of other species.
