Sustainability has, and will continue to be, front of mind for us here at Thrills. Our mission is to create quality clothing and accessories while reducing our impact on the environment and inspiring change. It's easy for businesses to talk about how they're going to become more sustainable, but as for us, we're about walking the talk and making real change. We're proud of our journey so far; From using materials such as Hemp and Organic Cotton in our collections to making substantial changes at our HQ to reduce waste. We're not perfect, and we can admit it's a long road ahead, but we can assure you it's a key part of our DNA, and we're here for the long haul.
When people come together and make small changes, the impact can be tremendous. This is why we're so incredibly proud to introduce a voluntary checkout donation option on our website in partnership with Australia's first and only Indigenous youth-led environmental organisation Seed.
From Borroloola in the gulf of the Northern Territory, to mob in Tasmania, to communities across the Kimberley, and island nations throughout the Torres Strait, Seed supports young mob with the skills, confidence, networks and plans to lead our movement for climate justice. They stand shoulder to shoulder with First Nations communities on the frontlines of fossil fuel extraction and climate impacts.
Today, Seed announced their decision to set themselves up as an independent organisation operated entirely by Indigenous youth of Australia, and they need our help to grow.
All around the world, Indigenous communities are rising up and trailblazing solutions to the climate crisis, so we're giving you the opportunity to join the movement and help Seed grow. The implementation of the voluntary checkout donation function is also in addition to our commitment to Seed as our sole 1% For The Planet partner.
Your donation will allow Seed to dream big, build ambitious plans and lay the foundations for setting up a new and sustainable organisation. Every dollar counts. All funds raised will go towards:
Investing in Seed's growing volunteer network
Engaging Seed's community in long-term strategic planning
Elevating the stories of First Nations communities
Expanding and building the capacity of Seed's leadership and staff team
Setting up structures and governance to enable self-determination at all levels of what Seed does
Seeking support from First Nations consultants to build a strong, sustainable, culturally safe and supportive organisation
