Our impact since 2016: 

  • We've diverted 7,500kg of textiles waste from landfill 
  • We’ve donated $17,270 and 284 blankets to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) in Melbourne
  • We've spoken to over 3000 people about closed loop design and business practices at talks, events and workshops
  • In 2017 we crowdfunded $32,000 to help fund the research and development of using other businesses' textile waste to make more blankets – you can check out our project with local Sydney label Citizen Wolf’s offcuts here.
  • We were awarded $30,000 in funding from Macquarie Group in 2018/9 to continue development of textiles waste to resource products. 
  • We were awarded The Design Files' Sustainability Design Award in 2019 and Queensland University of Technology (QUT)'s Outstanding Young Alumni Award in 2021.
  • We were recognised as 1 of 3 finalists in the Banksia Sustainability Awards' Youth as our Changemakers category
