What makes the permaculture calendar ethical?
The permaculture calendar is printed on Australian-made, 100% recycled paper using vegetable based inks. Our printer recycles all e-Waste, printing plates, ink cartridges, paper waste and packaging. The vegetable based that we use don’t release unnecessary VOC’s into the atmosphere or require harmful solvents for clean up.
Once the calendar has reached the end of its life you can recycle or compost it, frame and hang the pictures, or keep the calendar intact as a reminder of the principles and important events over the year. It can also be used as a teaching tool to illustrate an example of each of the design principles.
While the production effort does a lot in limiting its impact on the earth and the people in the process, we’re also demonstrating the ethic of Fair Share by now donating 100% of profits of the calendar to permaculture projects worldwide – with over AU$12,000 contributed since 2013.
