Our Values

The Self Adventure is created by Sarah Harney, a maker, writer & podcast producer, living on Kaurna Country in the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia, with her future wife, their spoiled pup & gorgeous new baby Quinn.

Our Values

One of our deepest values is sustainability & with that in mind, every element of this product & its packaging is made from recycled materials and is either recyclable or compostable.  

We believe that it should be as easy and as affordable as possible to create products that are sustainable and having the least environmental impact possible.
As such, we are pleased to share the following suppliers with you if you are interested in similar endeavours.
Printer - Print Together
Box packaging - Pack Queen
Paper, wrap, bags, twine etc - Buy Eco Green
Compostable mailers - Hero Packaging

Stickers, Tissue Paper & Mailers - No Issue

We also deeply value inclusion.  We strive to welcome & celebrate people of every gender, race, sexuality, age, culture, religion, ability & geographical location.  We do not discriminate & we acknowledge that we live & work in a world that has been designed to see some succeed & others fail, simply because of their identity.  Here, you are welcome.

Paying the Rent

We acknowledge that we are living and working on stolen Aboriginal land and in recognition of that, we ‘pay the rent’ by donating 5% of our profits to Djirra, an Aboriginal Community Organisation that provides culturally safe & holistic support, and specialist family violence legal assistance and representation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

From Djirra:

'Djirra is a place where culture is shared and celebrated, and where practical support is available to all Aboriginal women and particularly to Aboriginal people who are currently experiencing family violence or have in the past.

As most of our contact is with women, the work we do is predominantly designed by and for Aboriginal women.

We are an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation governed by an Aboriginal Board of Directors who are elected by our members.

Our journey started in 2002 when we were established as the Aboriginal Family Violence Prevention & Legal Service (FVPLS Victoria). Since then we have grown, expanded our services, and evolved as an organisation, and now we are Djirra.

Djirra is the Woiwurrung word for the reed used by Wurundjeri women for basket weaving. Traditionally, when women gathered to weave, important talks took place and problems were solved. Djirra symbolises Aboriginal women today, still  coming together to share stories, support each other and find solutions.'
