World’s Biggest Garage Sale

ABOUT WORLDS BIGGEST GARAGE SALE (WBGS) Started as a way to raise money for worthy causes, the World’s BIggest Garage Sale (WBGS) has donated well over $300K since its humble beginnings in 2013. Instead of asking for money, WBGS turns dormant goods from households and businesses into much needed impact. Fast forward to now, the focus for WBGS has broadened to encompass sustainability through circularity and creating employment opportunities for disadvantaged and vulnerable members of the community. In 2020, the WBGS team opened Australia’s first (and only operational) Circular Economy Precinct, where products are received, renewed, repurposed, recommerced and even regifted, to create meaningful employment opportunities through their award winning social enterprise. As a social enterprise WBGS is leading the charge toward a truly circular economy. This means that a purchase from WBGS is guaranteed to benefit people (employment, purpose), the planet (reuse, renew, repair, repurpose, recycle) and to provide purpose (community engagement, education, support & a sustainable scalable impact enterprise). Their omnichannel resale retail approach, provides community with alternate ways to source and purchase high-quality products (such as clothing, antiques, furniture & whitegoods) at prices that are affordable. WBGS is proud to build a circular economy, promoting recycling and reuse within the community to engage members in more sustainable forms of shopping that diverts waste from landfill and creates a second-life for products that were otherwise unused of unwanted.
