Join in the Garage Sale Trail today!

(19-Sep-17)

CHOOSE TO REUSE ON THE GARAGE SALE TRAIL. NOW A WEEKEND!

Garage Sale Trail, the multi-award winning sustainability & community campaign powered by local councils is back again as a weekend long event on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October, 2017.

Households, community groups, charities, local businesses and schools across Australia are set to join an estimated 350,000+ Australians as a part of the seventh annual national Garage Sale Trail.

Aimed at bringing communities together and promoting reuse Garage Sale Trail is powered by over 150 local councils and in 2017 has set two major national goals:

  • To see 2 million items listed for reuse on one big weekend of garage sales across the country
  • And enable 120,000 new neighbourly connections Australia-wide over the weekend long event

“Garage Sale Trail helps people to think about how we can all take responsibility for the waste we create. Items that are reused don’t end up in council collections or in landfill. It’s also a simple way for people to meet and talk to people in their community as well as fundraise” Andrew Valder, Garage Sale Trail CoFounder said.

“We love the creative spirit & colour that sellers bring to their sale names and the unexpected items on offer. Past examples include a vintage tractor, miniature goats, a beachside apartment and even a couple of grandpas, it’s all part of the fun!” said Darryl Nichols, CoFounder

The initiative is run by Australian not-for-profit Garage Sale Trail Foundation. The event exists to create positive social and environmental change in communities across Australia. An idea born in Bondi Beach in 2010 and which has since grown into a truly national movement. Good for the planet and good for community too!

Registration is free and open from 10 August 2017 via www.garagesaletrail.com.au
