I am passionate about doing whatever I can to make our world a better place in many ways. For me, politically and ethically, that means taking action on climate change.
For a while I worried that running a relatively small business in the wedding industry, I would not be able to make any kind of impact. But of course, I now understand it is the action of each one of us - and the intention, that will truly make a difference. Making sure my own business is sustainable is important to me.
My husband, Matthew went back to uni a few years ago to become an Environmental Scientist. He now works for Pangolin Associates helping corporations reduce emissions. I am so proud of what he has achieved for himself personally in finding more meaningful work, and also for his clients.
For my own celebrant business, in 2020 (on a particularly miserable day during Melbourne's infamous lockdown) I decided to partner with Greenfleet, a leading environmental non-profit organisation and Australia’s most trusted source of biodiverse carbon offsets, to take practical climate action. It felt so good to do something proactive that day.
“At Greenfleet, we are restoring native forests and growing climate hope thanks to the contributions of our amazing supporters, just like Kate Morgan” said Wayne Wescott, CEO of Greenfleet.
Year after year, individuals and organisations help Greenfleet plant more biodiverse native forests to capture carbon emissions and it’s their continuous support which makes a tangible and positive difference to the environment,” added Mr Wescott.
By partnering with Greenfleet, I am confident that I am making a forward step toward climate action and providing genuine and lasting environmental benefit. And I'm proud of the impact this is making. By offsetting our emissions with Greenfleet, I am taking practical action against climate change and helping to restore Australia’s forests, recreating crucial habitat for native wildlife and transforming degraded land back to its natural state.
You too can take real climate action. It is easier than you think.
