This will help protect and preserve old growth forests that host a high degree of biodiversity, which is of vital importance to endangered species and our own wellbeing. 🌲🍦💚 For more information visit  https://www.luonnonperintosaatio.fi/en/english/places-we-protect

In Part 3 of our #NUIIPEACEPROJECT we learn more about how education and water assistance go hand in hand to help resolve human-elephant conflict in Namibia. In addition to the 40 free solar powered water pumps we are installing in the region, we are also building an elephant-focused education centre to support @ehranamibia educate communities about elephant behaviour and teach them the skills they need to protect themselves, and their livelihoods, in the event of an elephant encounter. By doing this we are helping to secure the safety of both elephants and people in the long term.

World Elephant Day

On World Elephant Day we remember ‘Voortrekker’. Voortrekker, meaning "Pioneer", emerged in the early nineties. Out of seemingly nowhere, while strolling down the Ugab River, he made a loud rumble which locals recall sounding like a motorbike. What they didn't know then, was that this loud rumble was his way of saying that he was going to return - this time, with a herd of elephants, now known as Mama Afrika’s Herd. In the decades since his arrival, the "Old Man" as he was affectionately called by locals, made himself a home with the other desert elephants that followed him. By his example, they co-existed peacefully with the local community. They lived and grew alongside humans, powerfully displaying the magic of nature's harmony. Sadly, Voortrekker was wrongfully shot on the 25th of June 2019 after being declared a problem elephant by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. After Voortrekker was killed, EHRA made a promise to never let another free-roaming desert elephant die due to hunting or human-wildlife conflict. This is why the #NUIIPEACEPROJECT in collaboration with @ehranamibia and @wild.ark. is so important. You can find out more about his story here https://www.ehranamibia.org/voortrekker or continue to follow us for more updates on the #NUIIPEACEPROJECT. Photo Credit: Chris Pitot

ICE CREAM SURPRISES IN FINLAND

Froneri Finland has given ice cream donations to retirement homes during Covid-19. Elderly people were more lonely as there were restrictions on visiting them. Froneri Finland wanted to gladden and brighten the day of residents of the retirement homes with ice cream cones left on the doorway, of course. One elderly lady had even her birthday by chance on that day! Let’s take care of each other. Stay safe. Let’s care for each other, stay safe and stick together while staying apart.

Kelly’s partnership with Bumblebee Conservation Trust
The Fowey Valley bumblebee project links national science and conservation charity the Bumblebee Conservation Trust with local businesses, farmers and landowners and scientists from the University of Exeter. The project will be managed by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and funded by the Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation and Kelly’s of Cornwall.
Bumblebees are wild pollinators, which are essential for sustainable farming but declining worldwide for a variety of complex reasons. When land is managed appropriately, farmed countryside can provide a home for bumblebees whilst still producing food and helping to reverse pollinator decline.Kelly’s only uses fresh milk and cream from local Cornish dairy herds, meaning our ingredients are sourced just down the road from our factory in Bodmin. We have partnered with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust,  supporting sustainable local farming which will give better, bumblebee friendly pastures. Better Pastures = Happy Cows = Good Quality Dairy!

Did you know there are only 3900 tigers left in the world? Our new plant based ice cream RØAR is on a mission to change that via their partnership with Panthera and the ‘TIGERS FOREVER’ program which has the aim of increasing tiger numbers by at least 50% over a ten-year period.

NUII P.E.A.C.E Project 2020 (People & Elephants Amicably Co-Existing)

At NUII, we are committed to preserving our fragile environment and uplifting local communities. That is why we are excited to announce the #NuiiPeaceProject, in partnership with @wild.ark and @EHRAnamibia, to help safeguard the critically endangered desert-adapted elephants of Namibia, and support the people who live alongside them.

Only 150, uniquely, desert-adapted elephants remain in the Erongo Region of Namibia, due to elephant-human conflict. These elephants find themselves in conflict with humans over food and water. The #NUIIPeaceProject aims to foster a peaceful co-existence between humans and elephants. We are building a Co-Existence Education Centre run by the local people to enable communities to learn about elephant behaviour and how to protect themselves, and their livelihoods during elephant encounters. We are also installing 20 solar-powered water pumps to increase free access to water for both people and elephants across the region.

Follow our journey on Instagram or Facebook in your local NUII country and join us in protecting these beautiful, desert adapted elephants.

Protecting Teen Mental Health

Mental illness is very common. One in five (20%) Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year.  Almost half (45%) Australians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Maxibon Australia has teamed up with Beyond Blue to give back to our community and those living with mental health issues. To find out more click here.

Australian Bushfire Emergency

Australia has been an inspiration for NUII from the beginning. A unique land of extremes, famous for its beautiful wildlife, rugged environment and big-hearted people. We are devastated to see the suffering caused as a result of the fires raging across all parts of Australia. The NUII team will be donating $20,000 to FOODBANK VICTORIA to help provide emergency care where it is needed. Our hearts are with all Australians at this time.

Bike Ride for Hunger

Froneri Australia has participated in two Hunger Ride bike events; with staff members riding over 172km to raise money for hungry Victorians. Thanks to the support of the Peters Ice-Cream team and the riders that participated, this event in 2019 raised over $82,000 for Foodbank Victoria. This will enable Foodbank Victoria to provide almost half a million dollars’ worth of food to children and families in need.

Movenpick of Switzerland stops Plastic on Single-Use items in Parlours

After seeing plastic spoons being disposed of near beaches, Mövenpick wanted to swap to more natural materials made from a renewable resource that would be compostable in the long-run. As of 2020, Mövenpick will have 5.4 million disposable POS materials per year in plant-based quality. They stopped using plastic spoons and changed ice-cream & drinking cups from petrol-based PE-coating to sugar-cane PE-coating. They no longer use plastic lids on their drinking cups and changed their cone wraps to plant-based barrier paper and keep their fully compostable napkins.
