At Melbourne Podiatry Clinic our main objective is to help as many people as we can achieve health and wellbeing they deserve. To help us further achieve this goal, we have partnered with B1G1: a not for profit organisation that allows us to donate to help others. Thank you for your generosity in choosing Melbourne Podiatry Clinic to help us get you back on your feet and also allowing us to help others less fortunate achieve better health.
Below you can follow our global impact on the United Nations sustainable development goals, since we partnered with B1G1 in Sept 2019. For EVERY new patient to our clinic, we pledge to further contribute to these goals.

CAUSES WE ARE SUPPORTING:
Support beach clean up in Bali
Up to 75% of Bali’s garbage is not collected by official services. There are only five legal garbage dumps on the whole island. Makeshift rubbish dumps are everywhere due to poor governance; flowing into the ocean, destroying the marine environment and suffocating marine wildlife. The ROLE Foundation organises regular beach clean ups. The beach cleaner groups are spread across 5 locations, each undergoing cleaning and education training once a month including waste management, marine conservation, permaculture practices and healthy living.
In 2020, 1,063,356 kgs of coastal trash were collected.
Plant a tree in the world - GLOBAL PROJECT
Trees clean the air we breathe and serve as an important carbon sink for our emissions. A fully grown tree can absorb up to 21kg of carbon dioxide per year. Supporting this project means that tree saplings will be planted throughout the world which will eventually become fully-grown at a success rate of up to 85%, and in some cases also provide income for the local community.
