Working Towards Regeneration

We're as concerned as you are about social and environmental issues, and we believe it is our responsibility to make a difference. We here at Ora hold ourselves accountable as a force for positive change.

From day one, sustainability has always been part of our core values. But as we built this business, we've shifted our focus towards what we are calling regeneration. 

With regeneration, we want to go beyond sustainability and mitigation of harm, towards actively restoring and replenishing the Earth and the communities and ecosystems on it. 

Practically, this means taking a considered approach to the way we conduct business, create our brand and products. It also means operating in a way that gives back to the planet, empowers people and brings prosperity to our communities, wider society and future generations. 

Our Earth, Our Home

Ora is a proud member and supporter of 1% for the Planet. As a member, we commit to donating 1% of total sales to environmental causes, with 100% of contributions going directly to non-profit partners of our choosing. This means that every time you purchase an Ora product, we will donate 1% of your purchase on your behalf to protect our planet.

What is 1% for the planet?

1% for the Planet is a global movement of businesses and individuals collectively supporting environmental solutions. Created by Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, and Craig Mathews, the founder of Blue Ribbon Flies, the movement connects dollars with doers, bringing together individuals, businesses and vetted environmental organisations to help fight climate change.

Today, 1% for the Planet has a presence in more than 45 countries around the world, with the involvement of over 2,000 organisations committed to donating revenue (not just profit) to protecting the environment.

Reducing Our Footprint

We take a pragmatic approach to carbon emissions and carbon neutrality, and work hard every day to reduce the emissions from the manufacture and distribution of our products.

Every year, we estimate our company’s carbon emissions based on past and existing products. We are bound to reducing our carbon footprint by offsetting carbon emissions with Greenfleet.

We do what we can to reduce our use of packaging materials, waste, electricity and paper, and wherever possible use materials that are fully recyclable or post-consumer recycled. From our infinitely recyclable amber glass jars to our eco-friendly, sugarcane fibre waste labels, we have made it a point to honour our environment, every step of the way.

Regeneration - One Tree at a Time

Ora has chosen to partner with Greenfleet, an Australian, community-based environmental advocacy organisation whose purpose is protecting and restoring forests, wilderness and ecosystems around Australia and New Zealand.

As Australia’s first carbon offset provider, Greenfleet has planted 9.6 million trees since its conception in 1997, creating more than 500 biodiverse forests in Australia and New Zealand which are protected for up to 100 years and have offset more than 3.5 million tonnes of CO2-e.

Where we are currently unable to avoid or reduce carbon emissions as a result of doing business, we offset our carbon emissions with Greenfleet, which goes towards sustainable reforestation that plays a pivotal role in carbon drawdown.
