Green is the new White!
Carbon Offset your wedding
Cast aside the traditional bonbonniere and step into the future by offsetting your guest’s carbon footprint! Working with climatefriendly.com.au, the carbon footprint of each wedding guest’s attendance at Stones of the Yarra Valley has been audited and is equivalent to $1.10 per guest. Stones of the Yarra Valley offers couples the option of purchasing this carbon offset credit which goes towards the Tasmanian Native Forest Protection Project. We will produce a beautiful card for each guest’s setting to let them know of your thoughtful contribution.
About the project
The Tasmanian Native Forest Protection Project involves the protection of large tracts of privately owned land in the Tasmanian Central Highlands. The land in the project area is degraded native forest which has been logged in the past and, in the absence of carbon revenue, would continue to be either selectively logged or cleared for agriculture in the future.
The carbon project provides an alternative source of income to the landowners, enabling them to set the land aside for conservation purposes only, and manage it in a way that encourages natural regeneration of the forest.
In addition to its climate change benefits, the project helps to protect and restore Tasmania’s valuable native forests, which provide a habitat for a number of endangered species including the wedge-tailed eagle, spotted quoll and the iconic Tasmanian devil.
