Friends of the Earth

A community-based branch of the international environmental organisation with a social-justice perspective, Friends of the Earth (FoE) Melbourne had formed in Fitzroy and Collingwood by early 1973, and serves as a resource centre for other, more transient, FoE groups. Located in Smith Street, Collingwood, it runs an environmentally conscious food co-operative and campaigns on issues of social justice and environmental sustainability such as forest conservation, the rights of indigenous communities, nuclear issues, trade, climate change, alternative technology, recycling, waste minimisation and energy awareness.
