+OUR WAY OF LIFE
Kindred Temple is a way of life to reconnect to the beautiful soul that you are. We are a place where you can just be. Our daily selfcare rituals help balance the mind, body, and spirit. We use natural plant-based ingredients to create nourishing rituals. We handmake our products in small batches to preserve mother nature's potent properties.
+ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY
We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
We are committed to working towards a more sustainable future and are proud to support the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor, the first Australian project certified by the Gold Standard to help minimise our impact on the environment.
The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is a multi-species native reforestation project located in Southwest Australia which is a global biodiversity hotspot. It removes over 1 million tonnes of carbon in a region where over 90% of the woodland has been cleared.
The project was established on degraded, semi-arid agricultural land that no longer supported viable farming practices with the goal of returning the environment to its origins.
We did this by planting up to 50 native tree and shrub species indigenous to the region, including provenance seed collected from the project properties. Seeds and seedlings are planted alongside fragmented remnant vegetation and nature reserves, with the design objective of restoring the project landscape to its natural condition of vegetation.
This project aims to remove existing carbon from the atmosphere today and to recreate a healthy and functioning landscape, restored after decades of habitat loss and degradation.
This will become the new bush that reconnects to the Australian Outback. It is a legacy project which will strive to ensure the land is continually nurtured and improved. Current and future plantings form part of the Corridor providing essential connectivity for birds and animals to transition through the landscape. It provides the habitat for food, nests and protection from predators.
It also encourages native animals and plants that have vanished from the area or been pushed to the brink of extinction to return and breed. The significance and importance of welcoming back iconic threatened species such as Malleefowl, Bush Stone-curlew, Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo, Western Spinytailed Skink and the Woylie (Brush-tailed Bettong), as well as over 30 species of conservation-significant native plants, is immeasurable.
We are proud to be apart of the Eco-Packaging Alliance, contributing to global reforestation one tree at a time. As a business we are conscious of our carbon footprint and the impact we have on the environment. We have taken steps to minimise packaging and waste. Our stickers and tissue paper are produced by noissue using soy-based ink, acid free paper, and are certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio-based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular field corn and wheat straw. Their use makes up barley 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource.
