Scientists believe we are witnessing Earth’s sixth mass extinction, with one million species predicted to become extinct in the coming decades. Habitat destruction, pollution, natural disasters, poaching and overharvesting are responsible for this unprecedented crisis. Sadly, not one group of animals is safe.
At home in Australia, we saw the devastation caused by bushfire with an estimated 1 billion animals killed or impacted. Suddenly, the crisis became even more real and our decision to leave the corporate world and start Karma Collective became even more important. We know that saving one species in our delicate ecosystem can save many more, and that’s why the little things we achieve are so important.
At Karma Collective, we’ve come a long way since 2016, when we started making candles at home to sell at markets around Melbourne.
