We are
Sustainable Queenstown

A charitable trust since 2018, together we connect and activate our community every single day. We’re champions of better choices. We draw inspiration from our place and drive efforts in Waste, Transport and Biodiversity. 


We are here to activate positive social and environmental change.

Independent and not-for-profit, we challenge the status quo.  We were proudly formed in 2018 to identify opportunities to activate, celebrate and our inspire our community every single day.

Build Community

Whether it’s through our monthly Green Drinks, Repair Cafés, workshops or events, we welcome the community together to find and support sustainable ways of living.

Disrupt the status quo

Sometimes you need to shake things up a little, to encourage change. DISHrupt™ is our flagship reusable solution to an easily recognised problem; single-use event waste. Now used at the Remarkables Market each Saturday!

Reduce Food Waste

Food waste is a global and local issue. We introduced KiwiHarvest to Queenstown in 2017; a national service on a local scale, that collects and distributes produce, that would otherwise end up in landfill. 

Support Business

Pressure is mounting on businesses to operate with a strong ethical code of practice, to reduce their environmental impact and to give more back to the communities in which they operate. We help advise and support businesses through these changes. 

Why we do it

We live in a time where we need to challenge the status quo!

Our vision is to support and empower the Queenstown community to make better decisions when it comes to their sustainable practices every single day. Together we strive to create a more sustainable home for our community to live, work and play.
