Melbourne for Conscious Foodies Guide

A conscious food and travel guide to Melbourne with a difference

 

What is the Melbourne For Conscious Foodies guide?

The focus of our guide is to help city dwellers and travellers seek out eateries around Melbourne that are conscious to their very core. Some of the eateries featured include: Auction Rooms, Rudimentary, Streat, Tamil Feasts and so many more! Not to mention, tips, and places to volunteer and give back to in Melbourne’s food community. The slim 36-page guide has a minimal, black & white aesthetic and has been printed locally in Melbourne with vegetable-based inks and on paper using sustainable pulp resources, our printer also has FSC certification.

Eateries that we feature have been carefully selected based on the extent to which they successfully practice at least one of the following important criteria:

LOCAL
supporting local producers, and sourcing high quality local goods and ingredients (seasonal where possible)

SUSTAINABILITY/ENVIRONMENT
mindful practices that demonstrate a commitment to sustainability and environmental impact, and;

SOCIAL GOOD
contributing to the greater community or those less fortunate.

 

How We Give Back

The real essence of the guide is ‘giving back’, and with that in mind we will be donating 25% of the sales from each guide and tote, as well as a percentage of sales from Decisive Cravings events, to a local Melbourne initiative/cause. See our donation updates below.
