Our goal as a brand is to be a company that uses Australian and New Zealand made products as much as we can, supporting other small businesses along the way. If there is an equally made product of the same quality, we will always choose to stock Australian Made.
When we can, we will endeavour to support women in small business so that we can come together, as a group of like-minded women who are creating change.
We endeavour to work with suppliers with a similar ethos to reduce the impact on our land and resources. For more information about the incredible companies we are lucky to be working with, click here.
Please excuse, we reuse! That is why, your package may not be as pretty or neat as other stores. We vow to reuse every piece of packaging we receive. With any additional packing materials that we need, every effort is made to use recycled, recyclable or reused products. We accept all donations from friends and family of packing materials to prevent waste.
We use home compostable mailing bags or recylcable mailing bag. To learn how to compost our mailer bags, click here
We make every effort to use a carbon neutral delivery service, Sendle for all our deliveries. Sendle calculates the highest amount of carbon that can be generated by any given parcel send and then uses those figures to fund sustainability projects. For more information, click here
In a world of hurry, stress and complexity, I want to help build connection. By bringing together the incredible makers behind a range of products to help you live a simpler way of life we can build a community. A community of like-minded driven but busy women who are doing the best they can to make educated, sustainable choices. Join us online in our private facebook group, Butterfly and Bloom Eco Community
We are reducing the carbon offset of our business by partnering with fifteen trees. Fifteen Trees was established in 2009 and has helped plant over 180,000 trees in Australia and New Zealand. The company is run by 3 women who coordinate the planting of 15 trees on your behalf to offset your carbon footprint. One vehicle is offset by planting 15 trees, with one employee amounting to 58 trees per year. To date, Butterfly and Bloom has offset my car by contributing to planting 15 trees and I hope by the end of our first year trading, I will offset my own carbon production by donating to having 60 more trees planted on my behalf.

They respect, listen and learn from working with Traditional owners of the lands to have the most impact. $1 from each sale will be donated yearly to Bush Heritage to continue to preserve and protect our beautiful landscape.
