We have taken on a certified ‘Biodiversity Buy Back’ programme with our friends from the Burren Beo Trust, in the Burren Co. Clare on the West Coast of Ireland.
Our Biodiversity Buy Back programme sponsors the training of volunteers to protect the Biodiversity of the Burren. This includes the scraping back and removal of non-native species from growing in Ireland’s beautiful, UNESCO protected land, The Burren. We also use our programme to offset Carbon & emissions for Companies. We are regularly looking for businesses that really want to balance their emissions with actual actions.
We share this land so we share the responsibility to care for it.
We believe we have an environment that deserves our respect, so we work with a goal to make it better. As such, we run a tree4tee campaign where one indigenous Irish tree will be planted for each piece we create. To date we have planted over 1400 trees . Our goal is to reduce the adverse environmental impact causing Climate Change by implementing a certified planting programme of Indigenous Irish Trees on Irish soil.

ADRIFT WAS A JOIN PROJECT WITH NATIVE EVENTS, The idea was to stimulate the festival goers to consider all aspects of the ocean and the environment while being able to enjoy the festival at the same time. We held Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness workshops, Food Foraging and tasting sessions, a talk series or the benefits of local food growing and sourcing to reduce food miles and associated CO2e. We also ran separate ‘Think Energy’ talks with prominent public figures and scientists.

Ocean Plastics & Drift Net Knife.
Sea plastics & drift net collaboration project with knife maker Sam from @thisiswhatwedoo. OUR GOAL WAS TO GENERATE A CIRCULAR ECONOMY, Find A solutions to tackle single use plastics and discarded fishing nets.

OUR GOAL WAS TO SHOW THE MONETARY VALUE OF OCEAN PLASTICS SO THAT CORPORATION CONSIDER AN ALTERNATIVE TO DUMPING. IT WAS AN HONOUR to be working alongside advocates and artists @thisiswhatwedoo @emilyrobynarcher on theses projects.
