We are concerned about the impact humans are having on our fragile land and marine ecosystems. We want a sustainable future, one where everyone thrives on a healthy planet.

All of our products are hand selected to ensure they minimise environmental impact by employing brilliant natural, biodegradable or recycled materials, and by reducing product and packaging waste. However, we understand that sustainability should not compromise performance. At LoneKauri.com we hand select only the finest performing products to include in our range.

We are proud to partner with innovative brands that work hard to protect our planet. Many of our partners directly contribute funds to charities that help conserve our fragile ecosystem.

An Icon Under Threat

Kauri TreeThe name LoneKauri.com is inspired by Lone Kauri Road, an artery that winds down through native bush in Auckland's Waitakere Ranges. Lone Kauri Road concludes at Karekare Beach, a spectacular black sand surf beach made famous in Jane Campion's mysterious drama ‘The Piano’ in 1993.

While Lone Kauri Road holds special significance for the founders of LoneKauri.com, the name Lone Kauri is also intended as a symbol of a species under threat from human impact. The Kauri, NZ's largest tree, has been classified as nationally vulnerable by the  Department of Conservation due to Kauri dieback, an incurable, fatal disease. Dieback is solely soil-borne and the consensus among experts is that the predominant vector for the spread of the disease is human activity.

The Kauri's plight is real but also mirrors countless other environmental impacts throughout the globe.
