22 Apr 5 Most Sustainable Vegan Venues in Melbourne
Happy Earth Day! In celebration of Mother Earth and our commitment to showcasing the best vegan and ethical venues around, we’ve chosen a few of our favourites, as well as a special discount on our tours in celebration of the Planet.
Sourcing all of their fabrics, ‘leathers’ and products from sustainable practices, Vegan Style are the leaders in ethical fashion.
All products at Vegan Style are made with the planet and the people at the forefront. Every person in the design and production chain are paid fair wages for their work.
With bags made from apple leather and shoes made from Pinatex (a pineapple leather) and glitter boots with biodegradable glitter, you can truly wear your passion for the environment at Vegan Style.
When you’re Melbourne’s Smallest Cafe, you have to be conscious of space! And that’s exactly what Union Kiosk do. A no-fuss, hole-in-the-wall cafe that composts their food scraps and coffee beans, and uses compostable coffee cups for takeaway customers.
With all their food made in their tiny quarters, nothing goes to waste. With perfectly size portion sandwiches, most of the time we’ve never seen customers be too full to finish – and if you are, they’ll give you a little recyclable takeaway baggie to enjoy your jaffle for later.
A bar that hits the sustainability boxes? Yes please!
Good Love are St Kilda’s newest ethical, all-vegan bar that source all their produce locally. All fruit used for smoothies is Australian grown, as are wll flavours used for their cocktails. They make all their spirits in house, so no air miles are used to import fancy dancy liquor.
They use beetroot juice to give a unique colour to their pizzas and also use the same beetroot that gets made into a salt to decorate and give flavour to their other dishes.
Friends of the Earth
The OG place for vegetarians in Melbourne. FOE offer bulk foods and household items for those living plastic free, as well as homemade vegan and vegetarian food that is good for the tummy and good for the planet. They also give food to the North Yarra Community Health on the Café Meals Program through, giving back to the disadvantaged folk from the local community.
If you’re keen to join in on more sustainable action, join one of their collective meetings that run nightly in the upstairs FOE office.
EKA means “One” in Sanskrit, and if that doesn’t already show that they mean business for the community, their amazing space will.
They offer whole foods that are organic and seasonal and give their profits back to the community via different projects.
With a bus stop right outside and a train station a short walk, they encourage you to ditch the car and take advantage or PT to get to and from.
