We love to support local Buisness, and would love to hear from you if you are an artist or buisness person who would like to collaborate with us.

Tree PlantingYou heard right, We Plant Trees! If you don't know about us owners (Izzy and Zac), We're avid permaculturists! We commit a percentage of our profits from Ethical Crystals to growing Native Australian Bushtucker trees which we plant on volunteer public land. We do this to play a small part in keeping our area Green, in a way that will encourage folks to enjoy Australian Native plants the way that we do. The more our Ethical Crystals buisness grows, the more we can Grow 🌱 Our most recent project is a 60 Tree Bushtucker forest with additional Riparian repair at the Victory Squash Courts in Gympie. This area is made for the public to one day picnic beneath the fruiting Native bushtucker trees and listen to the frogs around the waterways. Soon we will be adding another lot (50-70 trees) of heavy carbon sucking Blue Gum Eucalyptus, to offset some of our businesses attributed carbon footprint. Feel free to go visit, and play a game of Squash while you're there!
