About us

twigged is a community for anyone who wants to reduce their impact on the environment, by buying or selling not only environmentally conscious products, but also by reducing plastic packaging waste of everyday things. The people and businesses who make this positive impact is what twigged is all about. Every time you buy something – big or small – we’ll plant a tree in your name. We aim to plant more than 10,000 trees by the end of the year. This will not only remove 20 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere each year, it will also create a habitat for all sorts of native animals that have lost their habitat elsewhere.

“We aim to plant more than 10,000 trees by the end of the year.”

What we want to achieve with twigged, is a platform to allow you to access everyday things, without the environmental impact of buying them through current ways. We aim to do this through:

  • Plastic free packaging on all products;
  • We aim to have products as environmentally friendly as possible. An example of this is that washing machines sold through twigged must have an energy rating of 5 or more;
  • Single use plastic is a material we want to avoid. Our wonderful sellers ensure this is kept to an absolute minimum;
  • For any food products, we avoid anything that doesn’t meet our sensible sustainability threshold. This means ingredients such as palm oil are a complete ‘no-no’; and
  • We plant a tree in your name just for buying something – not bad hey?

Australia: one of the worst in the world for deforestation

Currently, Australia is the only developed country in the world that ranks in the top 10 for worst deforestation. More than 5,000 square kilometers of Australian forests and bush land are cleared each year. This leads to all sorts of problems:

  • Less trees to absorb all that CO2 we’re putting into the atmosphere;
  • Lost habitat for Australia’s native animal population; and
  • Increased soil salinity, which makes it difficult for farming.

twigged will make an impact. Starting small can be that drive for change. We’d love to have you on board, or for any feedback you may have. Please shoot us an email at cam@twigged.com.au.
