Junk Free June - A not-for-profit organisation

Who we are

Junk Free June is a not-for-profit organisation founded and 100% owned by the Cancer Society of New Zealand. Launched in 2015 with great success, the platform supports the Cancer Council in Australia while the NZ campaign continues to support the Cancer Society of NZ.

What we do

We're building a healthy-living community by providing people with a platform to improve health and wellbeing. The best way to fight cancer is to prevent it - we're not just fundraising to make a difference, we're helping people make healthier choices to reduce their cancer risk.

Why we do it

"Analysis of global research shows that about a third of the most common cancers can be prevented through a nutritious diet, maintaining a healthy weight and regular physical activity" – World Cancer Research Fund International. We want to create a happier, healthier world for everyone.

Our Values


We help people free themselves from the things that have a negative impact on their health and wellbeing.


We’re committed to raising the social awareness of what health choices are. The first step to change is awareness.


We’re focused on educating people about how to live a healthy lifestyle by living Junk Free (or close to it).


We empower people to make positive choices. Our brand gives strength to those who want to make a change.
