We work with several amazing not for profit, NGO and community organisations across a range of issues important to us.
Hope Street Café
We work locally with the Hope Street Café in South Brisbane, a combined effort between Skilling Queenslanders for Work and Micah Projects. The not for profit initiative provides assistance and services to people in the community experiencing vulnerability through domestic violence, homelessness or a range of economic and social disadvantages. They do this by providing Cert I in Hospitality and paid training to people facing employment challenges due to unstructured work history like single mothers, those with mental health issues and the homeless.
Planet Friendly Packaging is proud to support such a great project tackling so many important issues and look forward to working with similar organisations in the future.
If you know or work with anyone in this space and think we could help with the provision of heavily discounted biodegradable and compostable food and beverage packaging, please let us know directly or send them our way.
We support the ConsciousNest project, a fantastic initiative focused on advocating, educating and discussing all issues related to young people and people who use drugs, using a judgement free and inclusive harm reduction approach.
They deliver harm reduction education, support and welfare services at music events across a range of contexts and situations. As an unfunded community grassroots project, they are leading the way in South East QLD towards improving the heath and wellbeing of many event attendees and young people across the state.
"We believe in delivering unbiased, factual and scientific information in a compassionate way. Encouraging people to have the knowledge and empowerment to make their own conscious decisions about their drug consumption, relationships and health. Our friendly crew or staff and volunteers are a combination of peer and harm reduction workers as well as qualified healthcare professionals."
Head to their website or Facebook page to learn more and support them in their efforts. We are incredibly proud to work with such an important project, providing truly essential support to young people facing issues central to their experiences.
