Meet the Family That Created a Business to Help Nature

One Italian family, based in Melbourne, Australia started a business to save the earth. Marini Ferlazzo works alongside non-profit organizations to support wildlife conservation around the world.

“We create collections in collaboration with our conservation partners and a share of profits is donated to their organizations,” they shared on their personal website. “Our paper products are produced here in Australia using 100% recycled papers and archival cotton paper for fine art prints.”

The company was founded by Nathan Ferlazzo, an art, wildlife, science and nature lover, alongside with his mother Clare and sister Simone back in 2011. In one of his projects, Nathan created a series of illustrations to raise money for the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest coral reef.

“I drew these illustrations to support the protection of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef,” he wrote on Bored Panda. “A share of profits from every print sold is donated to Great Barrier Reef Legacy.”
