Local hangout Just Earth is relocating to Vulture Street. Part cafe, part retail outlet, part social hub and 100 per cent heart, the company has been a long feature of the West End community. After a temporary hiatus while they moved, Just Earth is reopening in a new open plan venue and is ready to continue their successes in promoting global sustainability and equality.
The company was founded with a view to end poverty for women globally, by engaging in ethical business practises. They place an emphasis on sourcing products from fair trade companies and supporting independent small business. The new look venue will reflect this through their fair trade menu, featuring locally sourced organic ingredients and their signature Just Earth Coffee. The move and reopening has allowed for the expansion of their fair trade giftware, products and office supplies, crowd favourites in the previous store.
The venue will also serve as a social hub, offering opportunities to workers who have been neglected or taken advantage of by the market. The company aims to support these workers in gaining experience towards opening their own businesses. Networking and social enterprise events are regularly hosted to further assist those looking to break into the market, offering a forum for people to connect.
