Here at Pac Trading we always seek to let people embrace their passions - be it delicious food, great coffee, or sustainable living.  This is why we are especially excited to partner with Gillie and Marc, two extraordinary public artists and eco-warriors who have worked together for over 25 years, to support their latest #LoveTheLast art project, aiming to connect urban coffee lovers with critically endangered animals worldwide.

Featuring Hairy-Nosed Wombats, Orangutans, and the last three Northern White Rhinos, our coffee cups range will showcase the fun and meaningful artworks by Gillie and Marc – building a bond between coffee-drinkers and the animals that invite their attention from the colourful coffee cup surface.

For many of these critically endangered animals, public support is vital for ensuring their future survival, and what’s more, environmental degradation and pollution often pose major challenges – aligning #LoveTheLast with Greenmark’s sustainability focus.

In solidarity with this cause we encourage everyone you share photos with their coffee cups on social media and to use the #LoveTheLastCup hashtag to create buzz surrounding the project and unite project participants worldwide!

Of course, loving animals is the first step towards saving them. So we hope that - one coffee at a time – a love for these endangered animals can spread around the cities. To show our support, we will also be donating 1% of all #LoveTheLast coffee cup sales to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), whose mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth.

About #LoveTheLast Art Project by Gillie and Marc

#LoveTheLast by Gillie and Marc is a worldwide art project, with the mission of bringing critically endangered animals to urban areas so that people everywhere can create a connection with them.

Why? Because loving animals is the first step towards saving them.

Many of the planet’s most magnificent creatures are about to be wiped off the face of the earth, like Bengal tigers, snow leopards, leatherback turtles, great blue whales, javan rhinos, and so many more!  Each of these innocent animals is intelligent, have families, homes, personalities, and are deserving of our love!

#LoveTheLast was born out of the conviction that, now more than ever, we need a new approach involving unprecedented public support like never before! Endangerment rates are rising at an alarming rate, and soon we won’t be able to reverse the trajectory. Time has run out. Already, northern white rhinos have been dwindled down to the last three – Sudan, Najin, and Fatu – who are facing imminent extinction. If the whole world doesn’t get on board right away to make strides in conservation, then all animals will face the same fate. It’s now or never. 

World-renowned Australian artists, Gillie and Marc, are creating beautiful, show-stopping sculptures of endangered animals for leading locations across the globe. Physical touch is the most powerful way to form a connection, so even those disconnected by urban environments thousands of miles away can develop a loving bond to the planet’s most magnificent creatures.
