Hugh and Julie Kane – Directors
Hugh and Julie Kane, not only share the same name through marriage they share a passion for the planet, from this passion nextinct was born. They bring not only enthusiasm for the nextinct brand but a solid business background. Hugh’s skills were honed initially as a professional engineer, and for the past 10 years as a company director covering every area from engineering to biz dev and marketing in the energy industry. Julie has a background in business administration, human resources, teaching and psychology. Both are strong advocates of the philosophy that “giving back” is the way forward.
Minimising Carbon Impact
nextinct, wherever possible, sources materials and labour locally. nextinct started its journey in Perth WA with all designs and manufacturing originating in Australia and all products being truly “Australian Made”, heavily supporting the Australian economy. Importantly minimising carbon emissions, and reducing the impact on climate change which contributes to the demise of many species is also paramount to nextinct’s operations.
It is being argued with conviction and scientific fact, that the victim of the climate change phenomenon may eventually be the human race. In an attempt to change attitudes and promote education and action, to ultimately save our own species, nextinct has elected to contribute on behalf of our customers directly to charities involved with the conservation and protection of our world’s eco system.
As nextinct expands its operations throughout Europe and the USA all raw materials and labour (where possible) will be procured at source to allow nextinct to truly be an ethical brand.
Supporting Conservation through Donation
nextinct will give 10% of net annual profit from product sales to charities and organizations , which are in our opinion, doing their utmost to protect that which is essential to our bio-diversity through education, political pressure and actions.
nextinct also sets aside a further 5% of net annual profit for charities our customers and clients feel are most deserving. You can vote for your favourite charities through this website. The audited results will be made public in our newsletter with the beneficiary charity or charities notified accordingly. As part of our charter, nextinct will never contribute to any organization, which promotes any form of violence in the prosecution of its aims.
In purchasing a nextinct product or design you demonstrate that you truly care for the planet and obviously have excellent taste.
Thanks for your support
Hugh and Julie
