We've been a silent supporter of the Maraetōtara Tree Trust for quite a few years now and have enjoyed seeing rivers going from strength to strength! We couldn't give what we give without the sales of our lights.

So we've created a new level of sponsorship that honours you as our customers. For every light sold, we will give $1 to the trust. This will result in over $10,000 per year being donated to the trust from you.

Restoring a River


Formed in 2002 the Maraetōtara Tree Trust (MTT) brings together the Hawke's Bay Council, MTT, Cape To City, Private Land-Owners, Volunteers, Donors, Schools and You!


Reversing the Damage


The trust aims to re-establish 43km of the river with trees and shrubs native to the area which will in-turn encourage native species back to the streams and trees. So far they have completed over 50% of this goal and are closely monitoring the progress.

Support the Trust

There are many ways to support the MTT or initiatives like this close to your home. We believe in supporting environmental projects in our backyard so we can closely monitor the progress and at time get involved!
