Positively impacting communities

Antipodes is passionate about supporting local communities:

  • Each year we donate over 2,000 products as well as financial contributions to community groups across New Zealand.
     
  • The World Wide Fund for Nature is the major charity we support. We donate funds (NZD$60,000 from the sales of Chia & Kiwi Seed Superfood Serum), the majority of which are spent on conservation in New Zealand, Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. We also help build awareness of their environmental work through our marketing.
     
  • We purchased a new scull rowing boat for St Patrick’s College in our base city of Wellington, New Zealand. We love that the school can keep rowing fees to a minimum, enabling more students access to the sport. This team sport encourages a focus on fitness, good nutrition and health; helps develop a strong sense of self; and fosters lifestyle balance.
     
  • Our 55 SECONDS FOR 55 DOLPHINS Natural Beauty Challenge helped secondary school students understand an important environmental issue, and how they can raise awareness to impact change at a policy level. It also aimed to provide an experience of the positive power of social media for young people.
