WHAT UNDIES DO WE DONATE TO CHARITY?
We are incredibly proud of the underwear that we are able to donate through our one-for-one campaign. It all started one day when we found thousands of meters of elastic at one of our factories that was destined for landfill, and this sparked a transformation in our business model. We now utilise all of our factories' deadstock – from other customers’ cancelled orders, half rolls, leftover elastic - to create the underwear we give away. The special thing is, they are all different.
We have a close 10-year relationship with the factory that makes our donation underwear, based on mutual trust. They have been using BCI and organic cotton, as well as Oeko-Tex non-toxic dyes, for many years to unsure their fabrics are safe.
WHO DO WE DONATE TO?
We donate to many organisations, shelters and community centres who are in need.
Some organisations include;
The National Homeless Collective.
The National Homeless Collective is a local Australian charity that provide programs and resources for people experiencing homelessness, domestic violence and social disadvantage.
Kara Family Violence Service
Kara FVS provides support to women and children affected by domestic and family violence. They offer crisis accommodation, outreach and emotional support to those in need, and are waiting on new donations.
Days for Girls
In many areas of the world, having your period means not going to school. Days for Girls creates critical period packs and sewing circles to prevent girls from leaving their education in developing parts of the world.
