Our commitment to the environment

The Chestnut Tree Bookshop is committed to being a positive force for community, people and the environment.

It takes trees to make books, and we believe it is our responsibility to make sure that we replenish the trees and the environment. It’s why we use recycled and carbon-neutral products wherever we can, and it’s why we’ve partnered with Carbon Positive Australia.

So, why not get yourself something nice while doing something to help our environment?

Reducing our carbon footprint

Our commitment to sustainability doesn’t stop with us – we make sure that all our suppliers and partners share our enthusiasm for protecting mother Earth.


Who gives a crap

All our disposable single-use paper is delivered to us, plastic free, by Who Gives A Crap – the toiler paper that builds toilets.



Ever get tired of buying single use plastic bottles for yoru cleaning products? Well zeroco.com.au offers the best solution!

Their reusable and refillabel plastic bottles are made from plastics that they themselves have collected from the ocean! The copmany provides amazing refill pouches that get sent back to be reused and recycled.
