Welcome to Earth Action Trust.
Earth Action Trust is a New Zealand charitable organization working for environmental awareness and protection. With a focus on waste elimination, we are working towards achieving the zero waste and zero unemployment vision by 2040. Since 2014, we have diverted tens of tonnes of waste from going to landfill and redistributed back to the community through our programmes.
The overall goal of the Earth Action Trust is to transform people’s lives by empowering them through education, action and leadership to be good stewards of the environment with the aim or improving both their wellbeing and their ability to contribute to the creation of a sustainable, diverse and integrated community for the future.

ReUsable Goods Bank
Formerly called “Don’t Trash It, Donate It”, this programme redistributes unused and preloved goods in good working condition to members of the community, saving them from ending up in the landfill.
Holistic Fabric Upcycling
This upcycling sewing programme provides a workshop for migrant women to get creative with unused fabrics and unwanted sewing machines and equipment to produce natural, environmentally-friendly products.
Food waste disposed in landfill generates methane gas which is a significant contributor to global warming. This programme functions as a hub for distributing unsold bread and vegetables in partnership with another community organisation.
