We're all for conversation, but we want to give you a chance to start acting now.
Our Conscious Consumer Expo will give you the chance to talk to companies who are a positive impact through their products and practices, but what's more - you can browse through their products and not only support their endeavours, but contribute to their positive impact.
Take a look at some of the organisations products you can browse on the day!
Spair Pair is a social enterprise based in Melbourne dedicated to provided basic necessities to people doing it tough. We were started by two best mates who recognised that the stigma and apprehension surrounding homelessness prevented ordinary people from taking meaningful action. So they started Spair Pair as a platform to allow ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

We design and sell basic necessities and for every pair sold, an exact duplicate is donated to someone in need. We launched our first products - being socks - in early 2019 and have been able to provide 500+ items to people in need. All of our socks are made locally from sustainably sourced materials and using Ethical Clothing Australia certified manufacturing practices.
We distribute to people experiencing homelessness through our international and grassroots charity partners and often head out around the streets of our city and lend an ear, and a pair of socks, to someone doing it tough.
You can provide someone in need with the simple luxuries that we take for for granted by shopping for your socks at about us at www.spairpair.com.au
Online volunteering for an online generation.
In this digital age, the workforce is increasingly mobile and work can be done from anywhere, so that job and location are decoupled. Digitisation and the entry of the millennial generation into the workforce is fuelling this change. At Vollie, we believe that it is vital for non-profit organisations to more effectively engage millennials and provide them with opportunities that fit into this new age of work.

Vollie's founders, Matt and Tanya, were serial volunteers in their spare time for years while working in their Marketing and Business Development careers. The idea for Vollie came when they found themselves shovelling chicken poop at an animal sanctuary for the fourth weekend in a row, and they thought to themselves - "there's something more we can be doing here!"
Vollie is redesigning volunteering for the digital age. We provide non-profits with a highly cost-effective option with guaranteed results to connect their organisational needs with the skills and experience of modern-day professionals.
We make it incredibly easy for people to connect their skills and experience with the causes that matter to them, thus unlocking millions of dollars in volunteer value to our non-profit partners and allowing a new generation to make change, their way.
The opportunity for all of us is to be a conduit of change by making more connections between our society and the animals, plants and people in this world. Click here to learn more.
