An innovative new program has launched to encourage, support and recognise manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers that have sustainability and social impact at their core will provide much needed relief from the cost-of-living pressures, while at the same time fast track the circular economy.
However, according to Good360 Australia, a charity focused on giving new unsold products a first life to benefit people in need and the environment, governments need to support the program to achieve its full potential and, in doing so, need to rethink how they fund charity groups.

Founder and Managing Director of Good360, Alison Covington AM, says while industry has embraced the opportunity to increase their community impact, it was critical for governments to get behind Good360 Inner Circle for it to better relieve cost of living pressures, achieve zero waste objectives and better utilise funding to the not-for-profit sector.
