Treasure Boxes is passionate about providing essential items to babies, kids and teens. This enterprise rehomes essential items that would often end up in landfill and therefore play a powerful role in waste reduction. Increasing reuse in the community contributes to efforts to reduce over-consumption of new and particularly imported goods, with the associated energy and transport required, for items that are only used for a short time.
Treasure boxes provide vital essentials to the community and between July 2020 and June 2021, Treasure Boxes supported 1,368 babies, kids and teens. A significant portion of the items provided come directly from donations from the community and are good quality second-hand items. This prevents families and organisations from purchasing brand new items for themselves or their clients.
