Welcome to the 8th issue of Goals., Creature & Co.’s monthly E-Book that brings you a snapshot of positive news relating to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal of the Month. This issue is all about Goal #15: Life on Land, which is crucial because it encourages us to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems; sustainably manage forests; combat desertification; halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss.
At Creature & Co., we’ve worked on an array of projects that raise awareness of Goal #15. In The Dirt Is Good Academy, our gamified educational programme for Unilever brand Dirt Is Good, we have a whole section dedicated to the goal, aiming to galvanise a generation of young Changemakers into taking action.
Our fantastic, in-house editorial team also produces two editions of National Geographic Kids magazine each month: one for the UK/Ireland markets and one for Australia/New Zealand. Content in the magazine supporting the protection of life on land was the most frequently covered topic in 2021.
Of course, deforestation for paper production and production of paper itself is a land and energy intensive operation. To combat this, we seek suppliers who use certified 100% recycled paper and give preference to procuring certified 100%-recycled paper and card packaging for dispatching our products.
As always, we’re highlighting the positive ways people and organisations are doing their bit to progress the Goal of the Month’s objectives.
