ABOUT THREAD TOGETHER

From those who have too much, to those who have too little

Thread Together was founded in 2012, based on the simple idea to donate rather than dispose of unsold clothing.

Our founder, Andie Halas, saw the potential for unsold new clothing to be given to people in need, whilst also protecting the environment by saving these items from landfill.

Today, Thread Together clothes thousands of people across the country every week.

To achieve this, we partner with hundreds of fashion brands, a network of charities & social service agencies, and thousands of volunteers.

We are unique in that we keep clothing in circulation and we are recognised by the Fashion Industry as the most ethical solution to fashion excess.

TWO PROBLEMS, ONE SOLUTION

CLOTHING GOING TO LANDFILL

The Fashion Industry is one of the largest polluting industries in the world. What’s more, in addition to the impact of clothing production on the environment, around one third of all new clothing is not sold and ends up being sent to landfill or incinerated. 

ACCESS TO ESSENTIAL CLOTHING

Clothing is a basic human right. Sadly, in Australia, more than 3.5 million people do not have access to essential clothing. This equates to one in eight adults and one in six children.

IT ALL STARTS WITH A THREAD

Thread Together collects brand new unsold clothing from all around the country, saving it from landfill. We  partner with charities and social service agencies to distribute it to people doing it tough.

We believe that people in need deserve the dignity and choice of new clothing, without judgement.

How we get clothing to PEOPLE IN NEED

All clothing is given at no cost to people in need with the help of our network of charities and social service agencies.

This is made possible with the help of our supporters and fashion partners, together with our corporate and community volunteers.
