  • You’ll gain experience and new skills.
  • You’ll meet like-minded people, from diverse backgrounds and cultures

  • You’re helping your local community and working towards equal access to resources for all.

Keeping it Glocal

A buzzword we use is ‘glocal’, meaning a global focus with a local heart. Embracing glocal means that as an organisation you have a global mindset and reach, but you also accommodate the cultures, ideals, and needs of local communities.

We partner with corporations in our community so that we can transform their ‘waste’ into something much more. On a larger scale, it’s about how we as an organisation can do our small part within the big landscape of the circular economy. These partnerships between corporates, small business, social enterprise and community are so essential because no one can do this all on their own.
