Toimata Foundation is pleased to have partnered with Earthwise, a locally owned business based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland that has been making eco-friendly household cleaning and body-care products for over 50 years.   

Earthwise is providing funding for sustainable action and innovation projects across the Enviroschools and Te Aho Tū Roa networks.

“We are delighted to be working with Earthwise to bring this opportunity to our nationwide networks. Participants in Enviroschools and Te Aho Tū Roa are creating so many inspiring initiatives, and it is great to be able to offer the opportunity of a funding boost.“ - Kristen Price, General Manager, Toimata Foundation.

For Toimata, working alongside Earthwise is a good fit in terms of values. The new funding is being directed to community initiatives where it can make a real difference. These empowering initiatives are important for many reasons - community resilience, manaakitanga, developing practical skills, whanaungatanga, financial literacy, intergenerational learning, financial savings, youth entrepreneurship, advancing the green / circular economy AND more.

“We are proud to be a new sponsor of Toimata, with sustainability at the heart of everything we do, this network shares a very similar ethos to us. We are really excited about this partnership and the opportunity to continue to empower the next generation of young people and make a meaningful difference in communities across New Zealand.” - Jamie Peters, Managing Director & Owner - Earthwise Group Ltd.

Toimata and Earthwise will be identifying the projects to be funded over April and May.  We look forward to sharing some of the stories of the difference made in communities by this sponsorship.
