Go carbon positive
By offsetting more carbon emissions than the average Australian generates per year you’ll be going beyond carbon neutral and become climate positive.

how it works
1. Select your Impact Plan
Pick the Impact Plan that suits your everyday life, carbon footprint and budget. Every tree counts, so we offer plans from as little as $15 per month (that’s 50 cents a day!).
2. Make a Lifestyle Pledge (optional)
Select if you want to pledge to make a high impact eco-positive change to your lifestyle. To promote and reward members of our community for reducing their carbon footprint, we created Lifestyle Pledges. These are the behaviours that can reduce our individual carbon footprint the most. Select a Lifestyle Pledge with your Impact Plan and you will get a discount on your subscription.
- Using renewable energy
- Going car-free
- Having a plant-based diet
The honesty system applies. Find out more.
3. Tell us your sustainability passion (optional)
Most of your carbon offsetting is done through planting biodiverse trees. However, for no additional cost, Mallee Collective makes a portion of your subscription bespoke to an area you’re passionate about. Pick one of four UN Sustainability Development Goals to offset your carbon emissions through
- Life Below Water;
- Life On Land;
- Affordable and Clean Energy; or
- No Poverty.
4. Carbon emissions are offset with certified Partners
We combine the Mallee Collective community funds and invest them into hand-picked planting and eco-positive projects with our certified Partners. Offsetting carbon exclusively with certified Partners ensures that the carbon credits procured by Mallee Collective for our members achieve a long-lasting, trustworthy positive impact.
5. Positive vibes
Each month we send you updates on the Impact Projects you have supported. You can read about the projects that your subscription have helped fund and the certified Partners involved. Plus, feel more relaxed knowing you’ve improved the impact your everyday life has on the environment and climate change.

frequently asked questions
What is carbon offsetting?
A carbon offset is a project or activity that reduces greenhouse gas emissions or sequesters (captures) carbon from the atmosphere to compensate for the emissions created by your own activities. By offsetting your carbon to compensate for emissions produced in your everyday life you’re on your way to bringing your carbon footprint down to zero.
Why plant trees?
Trees extract carbon from the atmosphere as they grow, particularly in the first 40 years of their life. Mallee Collective focus the majority of their Impact Projects on planting a biodiverse mix of trees because it’s the only way to ensure that the resulting forest meets the highest standards of ecological sustainability.
On top of capturing carbon, this approach has a number of extra environmental benefits:
- Biological diversity is improved
- Habitat for native animals is increased and migratory routes extended
- Salinity can be reduced
- Water quality in catchments can be improved
- Tree roots can bind the soil to reduce erosion
How do we select certified Partners?
We only partner with organisations that are certified and recognised by national or international governing bodies such as Climate Active, The Gold Standard and UN Sustainable Development Goals.
