Reducing landfill through charity partnerships
Our presence in Australian communities and our logistics capability have also enabled us to partner in reuse and recycling initiatives with major charities, including the Salvos and The Australian Red Cross, on projects to accelerate Australia’s transition to a circular economy.
We ran a pilot of our Post-it-Forward program, inviting our workplaces to donate good quality clothing, by posting them in pre-paid Post-it-Forward satchels, that are sent on to these charities.
As well as generating revenue for the charities, it helps to reduce landfill through reuse and recycling. The program will be scaled up to include customers in the year ahead.
A similar program was trialled this year with our business customer, THE ICONIC, encouraging customers to donate clothes in the same satchel that their order arrived in. The clothes were then sent to the Salvos Stores to raise funds for people dealing with homelessness, addiction recovery and family violence
