Tommy’s is Backing New Zealand’s Big Backyard!
We’re working with Trees That Count to mitigate parts of our carbon footprint over the next 50 years, and help protect New Zealand’s threatened biodiversity. That’s good for our carbon footprint, and good for Aotearoa.
By supporting native tree planting, we’re creating more habitats for our threatened wildlife and helping build ecosystems that are more resilient to threats and diseases.
Helping Kiwis Breathe Easier
Native trees improve the quality of our air by removing pollutants and research shows that kiwi kids who spend more time surrounded by nature are less likely to develop asthma. Pretty awesome right?
Kaitiaki for future generations
Supporting native tree planting today will leave a legacy for future generations that we can all be proud of.

Reducing Tommy’s Carbon Footprint
By supporting green initiatives, we’re reducing our carbon footprint and helping New Zealand grow strong in lots of other ways.
Looking after our rare species
Protecting our native birds and rare species
Another initiative in the works is a partnership with Predator Free Wellington that would reuse Tommy’s fluted plastic, or coreflute signs, to help track rats and species that destroy natural habitats and kill native birds. This supports the phase 2 project of Predator Free Wellington, Island Bay to CBD eradication.
Diverting used printers/toner cartridges from landfill
Taking the lead in sustainability
Five years ago, Tommy’s entered a partnership with FUJIFILM Business NZ (FBNZ) as their industry print partner. Through FBNZ’s industry first Minister for the Environment accredited product stewardship scheme, Tommy’s have diverted over 100 kilograms of Tommy’s waste toner cartridges from landfill. As one of FBNZ earlier customers to adopt their recycling programme in our daily practices, Tommy’s have demonstrated leadership and enthusiasm in supporting a circular economy.

Reducing single use plastic bags
Prior to the banned of plastic shopping bags, Tommy’s gave away more than 35,000 heavy-duty, reusable, shopping bags in an effort to help reduce the use of non reusable plastic bags in Wellington. You can regularly spot Wellingtonians carrying these around the city.Learn more
