Toll Group has partnered with Thread Together, a charitable initiative, to combat fashion waste and deliver clothing to those in need.
“We move garments every single day, ensuring they arrive pressed and ready to hang,” Toll said in a statement.
“So, it seems right that we help to deliver clothing and shoes to the people in our community who are doing it tough.”
Toll is helping Thread Together to divert clothes from landfill and deliver them across Australia.
In five years, Thread Together claims it has distributed more than $8 million worth of clothing.
Thread Together founder and Chair, Andie Halas, said the model is very simple. The charity collects end-of-line brand new stock from clothing providers and with the support of volunteers, the clothes are sorted and redistributed to people in need through charities across Australia.
“We believe that disadvantage should not prevent people in our community from realising their potential,” said Halas.
“As well as providing the clothes that can change how people are perceived, the personal support that we provide restores optimism, confidence and self-esteem.”
In November 2020, Toll was exploring sale options.
