AN ETHICAL RESPONSE TO FASHION EXCESS
One third of new clothing goes from factory to landfill, whilst one in eight adults and one in six children do not have adequate access to essential clothing.
Thread Together addresses this uncomfortable truth by saving new clothing from going to landfill and providing these clothes to people in need.
We believe circumstances and disadvantage should not prevent people from accessing clothing to allow them to realise their full potential.

OUR MODEL IS VERY SIMPLE
Thread Together collects end-of-line brand new stock from fashion retailers around the country. With the support of volunteers, the clothes are sorted in readiness to be distributed to people in need through our national network of charities and social service agencies.
EMPOWERING PEOPLE AND PROTECTING THE PLANET
By collaborating with some of Australia’s largest clothing suppliers, we are extending the life-cycle of clothing by keeping it in circulation.
We do this by partnering with charities and social service agencies to clothe individuals, families and communities in need, restoring dignity and providing hope to people doing it tough.
