Sydney children's hospice Bear Cottage treated by a special visit from the Easter Bilby!
Australia has some incredibly amazing people who work tirelessly to benefit others. Although facing over-whelming challenges, their passion is inspirational, uplifting and worthy of our acknowledgment and support.
"Getting in to Bear Cottage was a good experience for me, and these sort of visits always help me to put things in proper perspective, our children are the most precious thing," says Peter Bodman of Kids With Cancer Foundation Austraia." It was great to have Frank's Bilby and the Swamp Wallaby from Featherdale there, so thanks to all.
I sat down afterwards with the Nurse Manager and discussed how we as Kids with Cancer Foundation could maybe help Bear Cottage and she told me their most pressing need was for a full time social worker to help the families and kids who spend time there. I couldn't see them go without, so I said we would provide the funding to employ a social worker there for a minimum 3 years. This will make the 4th continuous social work position (since 2003) that we do and will take our total donations to hospitals and families to over $13 million before the end of 2011." Planet Press congratulate this generous offer and encourage everyone to help these organisations in their fundraising activities.
Easter Bilby Ears at the Sydney Show
Planet's support of Save The Bilby Fund continues. This Easter through EnviroPrint donation, we again produced cut out Bilby Ears as a children's activity and give away at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
Thankyou Erica who helped by cutting out the ears for the eager kids to wear. and the team from Featherdale Wildlife Park who also support Save the Bilby Fund each year at the show. EnviroPrint Bilby Ears and other children's activity sheets are available for purchase at very economical rates through EnviroPrint's online ordering.

At age 16, Jessica Watson, was the youngest person to sail around the world non-stop and unassisted. During her adventure she bravely and confidently faced challenges that most people would wish to avoid, and in doing so inspired us all. This Bilby was named in recognition of the amazing achievements of Jessica Watson. "We have great dreams for this little Bilby and hope that her 'true spirit' will be as strong her namesake’s", says Frank Manthey Co-founder of Save The Bilby Fund.
Sponsors Face The Challenge!
Australia is lucky to have some of the
most beautiful and unique creatures in the world. All living
things - plants and animals (including people), are part of a
complex delicately balanced network called the biosphere. The
removal of a single species can set off a chain reaction affecting
many others. The full significance of extinction on the world
is difficult to predict, but it affects us all. Extinction is
no longer a "natural" process, most often it is a
direct result of human activity. Every creature has a right to
exist. Our challenge is to make sure they do.
On Thursday 27 May, thanks to Kristy Muxlow, Planet hosted our first morning tea in the fight against cancer. Our fabulous staff raised almost $400 in support of the Cancer Council.
We enjoyed a cuppa from the new coffee machine along with an over abundance of our "Master Chef" specialties and family favourites.

Planet Press Celebrates 50th Year in Business, 1958-2008
Since 1958, Planet Press has continued to provide high quality product to Australian businesses. Over the years we’ve demonstrated consistently strong growth to become one of Sydney’s most progressive, respected, diverse and reliable print manufacturers.
Industry change since inception has been nothing less than phenomenal. Syd Gould originally formed the basis of the company in 1958. The following year Col Marsh was hired, and as partners these men, with the help of many, many others have worked to develop Planet Press. Russell Marsh today heads the businesses as Managing Director.
Planet’s continuing success is due to the dedication, skill and love for the industry and the company, by teams of people who have worked here in the past, and those who are working here today. We thank everyone for their assistance in our progression. To celebrate, current employees, along with some important past employees and guests were invited to party!
Planet Press Feature on SCOPE -
Channel Ten’s Afternoon Science Show
Aired on television on Monday 23rd July 2007 at 4.00pm this episode of Scope featured Famous Inventors. Planet Press was lucky to be approached by Network Ten and Peter Marsh was volunteered to act as the presenter.
Explaining how the printing press works, the segment also highlighted the importance of printing as an invention. Filmed on site at Planet Press, various departments were displayed to demonstrate how offset printing works today, from design, to pre-press and the printing machine.
This was an unusual opportunity for our business, and we thank all of our staff who assisted in the filming, some of whom made their Australian television debut.
Planet Press Fighting Climate Change with Greening Australia
On Thursday 15 March 2007, Planet Press was represented by 9 people who took part in a hands on planting project in Western Sydney. The old grazing property has been selected as part of Greening Australia’s River Recovery project. Greening Australia works in partnership with landholders, the community, government and business to tackle environmental degradation in a practical, apolitical, scientific way.
Working with the other corporate volunteers and Greening Australia’s teams we numbered about 120 people, and in just one morning we planted over 6,000 trees! 20 trees can absorb the yearly emissions of a family car, with 50 trees absorbing the entire annual green house gas emission for an entire family!
Occasionally Planet sends "ORBIT" email newsletters or printed material to our clients and prospects as part of our customer service support for the The Planet Group.
