10 Indigenous businesses you can choose in NAIDOC Week – and beyond

TGL News

It’s NAIDOC Week (7-14 July) so in celebration we’ve wrapped up just a handful of the amazing, sustainable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owned businesses from around the country that you might need for your work or home.

In one way or another these companies draw on a culture that’s got 65,000 years of knowledge about sustainability in their various fields. Whether that’s architectural design or event catering, these are people who understand the importance of respecting place and keeping our fragile, beautiful environment at the heart of decision making.
