Every year in Australia, $2.5 billion of unsold household goods are wasted and 1 in 8 Australians are living below the poverty line.
Good360 Australia exists to reduce this need and waste by connecting businesses brand new unsold goods to people in need, creating a Circle of Good, where everyone benefits.
The Good360 Story
Alison Covington AM found out about Good360 in the USA in 2012 and thought it was a game changer. There were lots of charities rescuing food in Australia, but no organisation was saving unsold brand-new goods, at scale, from going to waste. Good360 had been operating in the US for 30 years at that stage and had connected $7 billion of new goods to people in need. Why didn’t we have the same solution here in Australia? Alison knew she had to start Good360 Australia and connect the spare brand-new goods of business with vulnerable Australians who need them most.
How Good360 Works
At Good360 we are connectors. We connect charities, schools and society’s most vulnerable with businesses willing to donate unsold or surplus goods, services and disaster recovery essentials. Our mission is to ensure the excess goods and services businesses produce every year flow to people in need rather than going to waste.
The result is a Circle of Good that reduces need and waste in our communities at the same time so everyone benefits – from people to the planet.
