There’s no time to waste, the world needs you.
At the World’s Biggest Garage Sale, we’re empowering Australians to make circular practices the social norm through the activation of dormant goods which positively impacts people and the planet.
Started from a neighbourhood garage sale in 2013, the World’s Biggest Garage Sale is now revolutionising how Australians engage with dormant goods.
Australian homes currently have $43 billion of underutilised goods at risk of ending up in landfills, and our current waste practices dictate a linear ‘use and toss’ mentality dramatically impacting our planet.
At WBGS, we’re solving this issue through the activation of dormant goods for good and building a truly circular economy. By empowering Australians to reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose, the World’s Biggest Garage Sale helps people to see the beauty in reloved or ‘second life’ goods.
Built from this founding vision, the World’s Biggest Garage Sale is now a proud champion in the profit-for-purpose resale retail revolution. Our online store and events provide our community members with alternate ways to source and purchase high-quality products (such as clothing, antiques, furniture & whitegoods) at prices that are affordable, paving the way for thousands of Australians to save money, time and the planet.
As a for-profit social enterprise, the World’s Biggest Garage Sale team focuses on driving profit for a purpose. Our efforts promote sustainability and responsible consumerism, and provide employment and purchase opportunities for vulnerable members of our community.
We’re activating dormant goods as a way to make purposeful profit that creates a positive impact on people and the planet.
Did you know $500 billion is lost annually globally due to the underutilization and lack of recycling of products? We maximise the value of goods already in the economy through the principles of reuse, renew repurpose, recycle, and re-commerce.
We’re changing hearts and minds about the value of dormant goods, one community member at a time. Many goods can have multiple life cycles, and if we all wholeheartedly adopt the ways of a circular economy, then we’ll keep more Australian money in Australian’s pockets, create employment opportunities and dramatically reduce our carbon footprint.
