Our partners & projects

We love investing in our community by sharing our resources and expertise – and the returns come back to us (and the environment) in abundance. 

Through our sponsorship and partnership programs, we contribute more than $30,000 of goods and services to community organisations who share our commitment to promoting stronger social connections and protecting our natural environment.

We’re always open to hearing new ideas on how we can help our community. 

Here’s a small sampling of recent relationships:

Addison Road Child Care Centre

Every quarter, our neighbouring child care opens their doors so we can show external educators our Loose Parts Play resources in action. To say thank you, the Centre receives shop credit for every ticket sold – and their educators are invited to attend our onsite workshops at no cost. 

Palletable Furniture

In addition to providing free materials that are used for training disadvantaged youths in wood working, we are also one of the primary retail outlets for the furniture they craft from reclaimed pallets.

Golden Letter Club

Reverse Garbage supplies stationery and promotional support to the Inner West volunteers who hand write letters to isolated and socially marginalised people – an almost forgotten but much cherished art.

Boomerang Bags 

As big supporters of the Boomerang Bags movement towards bag-free shopping precincts, we host the Dulwich Hill branch Sewing Bee every month.

Jamestown Junk Percussion Collective

We have learnt a lot by watching how our reuse resources are applied by the Collective, creating positive awareness of African culture through their sustainable workshops and performances.

How to apply for sponsorship or partnership support

We’re keen to help those who share our values, so don’t be shy about asking. If we can, we will. Simply email a brief overview of what’s going on, and tell us how you think our support will make a difference by encouraging the reuse of resources and strengthening community connections. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
