Charities

Sustainable Table

WHO WE ARE

We are an environmental not-for-profit based in Melbourne. Established in 2009, we’re one of only a few environmental organisations in Australia focussing entirely on our food system.

WHAT WE DO

We run educational campaigns and provide useful tools and resources that help Aussie consumers shop and eat more sustainably. If you’ve been wanting to eat ethically, help support local farmers or support more ecologically-friendly farming practices, we’re the place to go to find out how. We also support international projects that work to improve the food security of developing communities.

WHY WE DO IT

Modern food production systems have a major impact on the environment as well as farmer, animal and community welfare but many Australians are not aware of these issues and many more are unsure of how to help. Without widespread educational campaigns and resources to help consumers make better choices, there is no one driving change from the ground up. It’s not too late to turn our food system around – but there needs to be someone (like us) spreading awareness and driving consumer demand for more sustainable practices.
