A former supplier in Yilamara, has now started up a family enterprise and after a visit to our Port Douglas store in April 2021, we are launching their collection of threads for little ones and grown ups at our Darwin store!
Today the Songlines family, Russell Yilamara Brown & Clare Schoeller & their little ones, who are based on Groote Eylandt share their story for creating change with us.
How would you describe ways that you give back / pay it forward in our community?
What is your one-of-a-kindness story?
Russell provides art workshops to our local early education centre during NAIDOC Week. He worked with children from ages 6 months to 5 years old to share his culture and stories. After the workshops is finished he donates the finished pieces for the centre to display proudly in each of their rooms.
Can you share with us a story of how you care for country?
Our respect of and commitment to care for country means that all of our packaging is either compostable, recycled or is recyclable. We request our suppliers to minimise plastic packaging to reduce the use of soft plastics in our supply chain. As a family we are committed to reducing our waste by compositing, recycling where we can and using more environmentally friendly options in our household so that we continue to respect and care for the country we live and work on.
