How Big W did Good with Excess Goods | #16
In this episode of Add To Cart, we are joined by Alison Covington of Good360, a matchmaker helping to repurpose items of value by directing them to Australians most in need. Alison shares how retailers such as Big W, Harvey Norman and Lego have partnered with Good360 to make valuable contributions to their communities. We hear how it works, the success stories and the benefits for retailers. In a year full of bushfires, floods and Covid19, this conversation is a timely reminder that acts of giving are good for us all.

Alison is an innovator, social entrepreneur, founder and MD of Good360 Australia. Good360 is a matchmaker helping repurpose items of value by directing them to Australians most in need. Passionate about equality and reducing waste, Alison founded Good360 Australia because she saw a gap in the market where businesses did not have a solution to donate surplus, brand new goods to charities and schools in a seamless way at scale. Alison’s goal is simple, to deliver $1bn of brand news goods to Australians in need by 2025.
