The Eco Warrior’s purpose is to be the online hub where you can find inspiration and purchase easy alternatives to reduce your waste and live a more sustainable lifestyle. When it comes to shipping your order we want to stay true to our mission. This is why we have partnered with Sendle, a shipping company that is also a B Corporation who strives to keep our planet and environment healthy.
Myamyn Conservation Australia
One of the projects we are currently supporting is Myamyn Conservation Australia in Victoria (Verified Carbon Standard).
Blue gums, planted in sections of the Annya State Forest – an ancient forest – have been negatively impacting the biodiversity of the area. By protecting this land against further clearing and replanting it with natural vegetation, we are helping preserve the habitat of endangered native species, such as the scented spider orchid, the powerful owl, and the long-nosed potoroo.
– Annya State Forest is protected from further clearing, and new native plants are laid, which ensures biodiversity.
– The precious habitat of threjatened and endangered native species is protected.
Madre de Dios Conservation Project
Another project we are supporting is Madre de Dios Amazon in Peru.
The Madre de Dios rainforests are a global biodiversity hot spot, providing habitat to four endangered rainforest flora and eleven endangered wildlife species. Project activities include ecosystem performance evaluation and identifying high value conservation forest areas where timber operations are banned, as well as implementing community support activities.
– Encourages sustainable work (e.g. agroforestry instead of subsistence livestock agriculture).
– Improves local life in Villa Primavera, Iñapari and the Bélgica Native Community.
– Women in The Bélgiica Native Community’s Health and Education Program develop skills and knowledge in handicrafts and ecotourism.
– In Villa Primavera, the Children’s Forest Methodology workshop provides environmental education to teachers, students and parents, fostering sustainable development.
Another project we are supporting is Breathing Space in South India (Gold Standard).
Breathing Space involves the dissemination of 300,000 durable, affordable and clean energy cookstoves. This project helps families breathe healthier air and spend less time and money on cooking fuel. By disseminating cookstoves, this places a smaller demand on forests, and emits fewer greenhouse gases, as well as creates a sustainable channel of market distribution.
– Local women are able to work self-sufficiently.
– Indoor air is improved and deforestation decreases.
– 1.2 million people have benefitted from the distribution of 300,000 cookstoves so far.
Projects we have supported in the past:
– Tasmanian Native Forest Protection
– Toyola Cookstoves
– Healthy Cookstoves and Water Treatment
– Borneo Rainforest Rehabilitation
