Our environment is changing very fast due to the impact of human activities. Throughout the world, we are beginning to witness the severe consequences of climate change and biodiversity loss.
Despite New Zealand having a 'clean green' image, the health of our land and waterways often leaves much to be desired, with pollutants contaminating our streams and hillside erosion impacting a great deal of farmland.
What if there was a way that we could make a positive impact on the earth and prosper at the same time?
The answer can be found in nature.
If a good proportion of our farmland were returned to native forest, most of these problems would be solved. We would have healthier waterways, cleaner air and more biodiversity.
But how is this possible?
For many centuries, Māori have turned to the forest for healing. Science is now showing that species such as mānuka contain a wide range of healing compounds that can be used for lots of different purposes.
We create awesome products using mānuka and kānuka extracts to increase demand for native plants and grow a conversation around the idea of reforestation.
Imagine driving down a peaceful country road, somewhere in New Zealand.
Something feels different, there's more forest everywhere. You can drink water from the streams and taste the freshness in the air. Native species are growing on the surrounding farmland, providing valuable income and jobs for the local community.
There are so many products that can be developed, enriched and improved by adding extracts from mānuka and other native flora.
It's a win-win-win situation. Instead of exporting commodities, we produce high value goods. Instead of cultivating grass, we grow beautiful forests.
