Story Box
By storing anything from letters to keys to kitchen spices in a handmade Story Box, you’ll be helping us revegetate South Australia. With each purchase, every Story Box will go on to become four native trees planted by Trees For Life.

Story boxes are crafted from retired shipping pallets that would otherwise be incinerated. Each pallet starts as a tree in Asia, travels around the world carrying precious cargo, then becomes a Story Box.

The pallets are rescued and deconstructed in Lonsdale South Australia by Chris, a retired physiotherapist and hobby woodworker who creates the boxes using a dovetail jig. The rescued planks are pock-marked by pallet wood staples and warped by the knocks and bumps of their voyage; their scars and splits are part of their story and make each box unique.
