We're proud to partner with Good360 Australia, a Not-for-Profit and Australia’s largest online marketplace where businesses can donate their brand-new surplus stock which is then matched to people most in need.
We'll be undertaking a range of campaigns to support this amazing organisation including:
- Donating a product to Good360 for every order placed on our website as part of the care packs designed to help an Australian in need.
- We'll be working in conjunction with Good360 to organise volunteering days with our local Sydney-based Pink Hibiscus community, at their Redistribution Centre throughout the year. This will give you an opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the amazing work Good360 does, the mammoth logistical effort behind this and to help out where needed.
Good360 launched in Australia in 2015, when Founder & Managing Director Alison Covington saw that food rescue was being addressed, but there was no solution for businesses’ surplus brand-new goods. Pre-consumer goods were left idle in warehouses or even worse going to landfill. Good360 now ensures that businesses have a viable, sustainable solution to the problem of their excess goods.
Good360 matches the right goods to the right people at the right time via their network of 3,000 member charities and disadvantaged schools Australia-wide. Members choose the goods they need from the Good360 website with 24/7 access, and match them to vulnerable communities helping to provide dignity and equality. Good360 supports 31 cause areas from homelessness and family domestic violence through to marginalised groups, Australia-wide and has matched over 25 million brand new items to vulnerable people since launch.
Demand has increased 3-fold!
The back-to-back disasters of the last two years, including drought, flood, bushfires and now the devastating effects of COVID-19 has seen huge demand for Good360’s services. In 2020 Good360 was matching 13 items a minute, the latest wave of lockdowns drove that number to a peak of 39 items a minute! Through disaster recovery alone, Good360 has matched 12 million items including hand sanitiser, face masks and everyday essentials to Australians in need. Many people who would not normally ask for help are now part of the vulnerable community and the need is greater than just food alone.
A Sustainable Solution
Good360 has been recognised as a leader in the circular economy by The Circle Awards AUS & NZ 2021, receiving the ultimate Judges’ Choice Award;
“Good360 is a pragmatic contribution towards prolonging the life of products while also supporting those in economic distress …I really do admire Good360’s ability to address social, ecological and economic objectives.”
John Gertsakis, Director of Product Stewardship Centre of Excellence and Adjunct Professor at UTS Institute of Sustainable Futures.
