Charitable Recycling Australia commissioned independent market researchers MRA Consulting Group to measure the triple-bottom line impact of the charitable reuse and recycling network.
The results in the report were determined through a comparison of a tonne of clothing in Australia going to landfill versus a tonne of clothing being collected through a Charitable Reuse and Recycling Sector Enterprise.
Detailed data was collected from 27 Charitable Reuse and Recycling Sector Enterprises, representing 54% of charity shops in Australia.
