World's Biggest Garage Sale launches new brand: Circonomy

Nine years ago, the World’s Biggest Garage Sale was created out of the recognition of the urgent need to reduce the amount of household waste, while raising much needed funds for charities.

The organisation subsequently evolved into a for-profit and purpose social enterprise and achieved results far beyond what we could have ever imagined.

To date, the World’s Biggest Garage Sale has:

  • Diverted over 4 million kilograms of goods from landfill
  • Raised over $300,000 for charities
  • Saved 1.29 billion litres of water from the production of new goods

 We were delighted when Officeworks recognised the outstanding value of the enterprise and subsequently came on board as our key corporate partner. This partnership has further enabled our exponential growth and development.

As the brand evolved into being more than just a garage sale, we considered the possibilities of how to educate, encourage and partner with organisations turning to a circular economy. Circular economy is the process of transforming every element of our take-make-waste system, and today marks a new chapter. 

We have outgrown our much-loved World’s Biggest Garage Sale brand to make way for our future. One that reflects our purpose. One that reflects our planet. One that reflects our people. 

It is with an enormous amount of pride and enthusiasm we introduce: Circonomy. A world where nothing good goes to waste, including human potential.

Circonomy identifies items destined for landfill and prepares them for a second (or third) lease on life. We bring together retailers, designers, craftspeople and resource recovery organisations to give life to objects and items that would normally end up as landfill. In doing this, we grow and connect both the supply and demand sides of the resale market. Our model is profitable and replicable, which means we can accelerate the circular economy, not just here in Australia, but across the globe. 

Our showroom in Morningside will continue to live on. However, with a renewed focus comes a new suite of services, including:

  • Commercial and Office Fit-Outs
  • Waste Solutions
  • Product Quality Correction Services
  • Corporate and Product Partnerships
  • Insurance and Salvage Solutions
  • Wholesale Partnerships. 

We are also preparing an interstate expansion before the end of 2022. More details to be announced soon. 

We are proud of our new brand, and incredibly special and unique team. Thank you to all who have been on our journey, past and present employees, clients and friends, all of whom have helped us achieve what we have to date.

The future is circular, and we hope you will join us as we leap into making circularity the new normal.
