Food + Packaging Waste

Waste Deep Documentary.

22 minutes that will change the way you shop and eat. Forever.


Food and packaging waste is not simply something that ‘goes away’ when we pop it in the rubbish bin for collection each week. Waste has an insidious, long-term impact on our environment, our wildlife and ultimately our own health. But how do we avoid it? In an age of excess consumption and a mindset of convenience-at-all-cost, is it possible to truly be waste free?

Delve into the world of waste and zero waste living with our short documentary, Waste Deep.

WASTE DEEP from SustainTable on Vimeo.


Our free-to-watch documentary shows how food and plastic waste can be avoided, drawing attention to much of the unnecessary packaging that is choking our lives, oceans and animals. It also gives an insight into the environmental and social impacts of our wasteful ways.

The film features some pretty rad people such as environmentalist and keen surfer Tim Silverwood, blogger, author and TV presenter Sarah Wilson and exuberant host of ABC’s Gardening Australia, Costa Georgiadis.

We couldn’t have done this without the generosity of the aforementioned folk, as well as the special people below:

Mathery Studios, our supremely talented videographers.
Jack Johnson and All At Once, for selecting us as one of their supported charities and matching donations made to our Pozible campaign up to $2,500USD.
ecostore, for once again sponsoring and supporting so much of what we do.

And, these incredible organisations for also featuring their lovely faces:
Second Bite  |  Take 3  |  Port Phillip Council  |  Spade & Barrow  |  Buy Nothing New Month

A special mention also goes out to everyone who supported our Pozible Campaign, we are eternally grateful and could not have created this documentary without you!
