By choosing Native Hard Sparkling, you're directly supporting 100 individual native species.
Pūmanawa, pictured left, was the first we supported from hatch to release at Pūkaha National Wildlife Centre in Wairarapa. Pūmanawa was released into the wild at Mt Bruce reserve in August 2020 with her best mate Toi by her side.
Piari is another little kiwi at Pūkaha we've supported. He was born in the 2020 breeding season with special white toes and a cheeky personality. Piari was released into Mt Bruce reserve in late 2020, after hitting the pest-proof weight of 1.2kgs.
You can be proud that you're part of the journey contributing towards our precious native species from hatchling to a strong, pest proof survivor.
Tiritiri Matangi Sanctuary
We've partnered with the team at Tiritiri Matangi, a pest-free Island in the Hauraki Gulf. We support Tiri's kōkako monitoring programme - specifically, a breeding pair called Noel and Rehu, our third and fourth individual species under the 100 Club. The programme helps locate nests, determines significant dates and records outcomes for offspring. This 'middle-aged' couple have successfully bred 10 fledglings so far.
Kōkako are iconic birds and belong to the endemic wattlebird family, another being the huia which is sadly extinct. The team at Tiritiri Matangi are making sure kōkako are looked after and will still be here for future generations.
Trees that count
Native & Trees That Count love trees but not just any old trees, Aotearoa’s unique native trees. Trees That Count is a conservation charity bringing together business, community and everyday Kiwis, with the vision of planting 200 million native trees across the country.
Every single tree counts, so whether you’re planting one native tree in your backyard, hundreds in your community or thousands on a farm we want to know and help support. By counting the native trees which are planted each year we can monitor and measure the positive impact we are all doing to improve the environment.
We want to make it easy for Kiwis to make a difference and help plant millions more native trees so we're giving you the option to fund a native tree with any purchase through our online store.
Champion your backyard
With over 4000 endangered native species in Aotearoa, we know that education & public engagement will play as big a part as our 100 Club and Trees That Count campaign. We believe and are inspired by the vision statement of one of our local partners - Squawk Squad:
"To inspire a generation of tamariki to become kaitiaki of Aotearoa New Zealand, through education and action."
The Better Packaging Company design revolutionary, customised packaging solutions for the new eco-nomy – a circular economy in which generating waste is not an option and the earth’s resources are not treated as infinite. At Native, we use their home compostable pallet wrap and courier bags and labels.
For us, sustainability is a continuous journey that we're learning more about everyday. As we continue to grow, we want to ensure that our internal goals align with our external goals or as the boss likes to say, "how we do anything is how everything". Whether that's through The Better Packaging Co's products or Innocent Packaging's compostable tasting cups, we are on a mission to make sure we're using the best options out there for a more sustainable supply chain.
