Here at Vanchi, we take our social responsibility seriously and value giving back to the community in a real and meaningful way. We support a variety of charities that are close to the hearts of our team, including the Birthing Kit Foundation, St Kilda Mums, and Mission Australia.
One of the initiatives that we are proud to support is One Tree Planted, a non-profit organisation focused on global reforestation. Their mission is to make it simple for anyone to help the environment by planting trees.
When the 2019-2020 fires destroyed approximately 15 million acres of land and caused unprecedented damage to the flora and fauna here in our backyard, it became evident how important charities such as this are in re-building, re-greening, and helping these stricken communities to recover.
For this very reason, we have committed to purchasing at least one tree for every VANCHI Nappy Bag purchased to do our bit in restoring the bush and natural ecosystems. You get all the good feels as well, knowing that your purchase contributes to supporting this incredible cause. We love visiting the bush with our little ones and want to make sure that this unique landscape is around for generations to come!
Last week on World Chimpanzee day, One Tree Planted made an exciting announcement that they are partnering with the Jane Goodall Institute to plant 3 million trees in the Albertine Rift Forest in Uganda. The Albertine Rift Forest is home to a diverse eco-system that supports countless different species and is a prominent habitat for endangered Chimpanzees.
Here at Vanchi, we think that Dr. Jane Goodall is an incredible female role model, so we were thrilled to hear about this partnership! As an amazing champion of animals and the environment, Dr. Jane Goodall began her research in 1960 at 26 years old, at a time when it was unheard of for a woman to venture into the wilds of the African forest. She has continued to study Chimpanzees ever since, and her ground-breaking research eventually redefined what it means to be human.
