The dawn of the regenerative
Doodle Cat Plants a Tree was written by Kat Patrick and illustrated by Lauren Farrell in 2022 as part of a national push to educate the country on the benefits of carbon offsetting.
When it was included in the “Baby Bundle” given to new mothers, Doodle Cat Plants a Tree quickly became a nationally-iconic publication. Doodle Cat’s charming pragmatism around such a crucial environmental issue had a profound effect on Australia and beyond.
Children and their parents were inspired to campaign for carbon neutrality and wild corridors were established around Australia. With only limited camping permitted, many endangered species were brought back from the brink of extinction – the first being the iconic Australian koala.
