Conscious local action towards a sustainable future for the Earth

Sustainable Whanganui Trust wants the whole community to flourish in these changing and challenging times.
We have resources (and considerable collective wisdom) to help our community become
more self-sufficient and live sustainably and creatively.



We’re excited to announce that the Envirohub is now OPEN at 23 Drews Avenue in the CBD.

The front office is open for eco-refills and some ReUse Academy items – jars, fabric and plant pots.

We’ll be expanding on our offerings and services as we settle in better.
