Beliefs and Small Things

Mitch Dowd himself has always led the way in his personal life & ethics. He caught a tram when he & brother Jason sold Mitch Dowd to private equity in 2009. They bought their company back in 2010 & infused their core values once again into our culture.

Mitch lives on a property on a mountain above Euroa which is surrounded by protected land. He built his home with a 6 star energy rating back when this was not easy to do. Mitch has always been closely connected to the land through his art and values.

Our focus on not just offsetting but reducing our emissions is real. We are not a multi-national corporate. We are a small family-owned Australian brand based in Melbourne. What we can control we have changed. We have “greened” our operations in every way we can think of.

Our office has come under the microscope – not just the big things like green energy, but the little things that make the difference: a spot for our used batteries, organic, soft plastic, recyclable & landfill bins; single flush toilets. Recycled toner cartridges, coffee pod recycling, who gives a crap toilet paper, staff education - the list goes on.
