Lets get Reflex out of our native forests

On saturday February 27 we launched our new consumer awreness campaign at the Maryvale pulp mill. Victoria has some of the most magnificent and biodiverse forests in the world. But the majority of trees logged in Victoria's water catchments in the Central Highlands end up at the Mill to be woodchipped for paper products. Check here for details.

The majority (approximately 7 in every 10) of trees logged in Victoria's water catchments in the Central Highlands end up at the Maryvale Mill to be woodchipped for paper products. The new owners of the Maryvale Mill, the Nippon Paper Group also buy logs from around Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania. It is time to tell the company that we won't buy forest destruction.

Victoria has some of the most magnificent and biodiverse forests in the world. These forests are also huge carbon banks, helping to reduce climate change, as well as maintaining water supplies and providing vital habitat for threatened and endangered species. Victoria is Australia’s most cleared state, and faces alarming extinction rates. Yet much of Victoria’s native forest estate is still being logged for woodchips.
