Our Ethos

Wonderfruit goes carbon neutral

7 Oct 2016 | By Wonderfruit

Wonderfruit is an annual celebration of art, music, food and ideas and and we are constantly looking for ways to be a catalyst for positive social change.

We recognize that many environmental issues are at a tipping point, and believe the ecological disasters we are facing can be reversed if we act decisively. The fate of future generations depends on our actions today.

With that in mind, since our event in February 2017, we’ve pledged to be climate and biodiversity positive by investing in the planting of 11,000 mangrove trees in the Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park in Myanmar. We believe that it’s important to preserve the world’s valuable natural resources that are already thriving, and not only offset our carbon emissions but protect those precious areas from further deforestation and damage. Not only does each mangrove tree sequester up to a tonne of CO2 over 20 years, planting them has multiplier impacts in community, climate, and biodiversity.

As a Wonderfruit ticket-holder you can relax in the knowledge that you are participating in a carbon neutral and biodiversity-positive event.
