A.H. Beard

Mission Australia

In 2009, Mission Australia established a mattress recycling social enterprise, Soft Landing, in Bellambi, NSW. The program provided jobs to disadvantaged jobseekers and recycled thousands of mattresses and bases from hotels, retailers, councils and the community throughout Sydney and the Illawarra. In 2012, the initiative won the Premier's Award for Environmental Excellence in the NSW Green Globe Awards. A.H. Beard joined forces with Mission Australia in 2012, and by June 2022, had redirected over 500,000 beds from landfill. Mission Australia is committed to reducing its ecological footprint and advocating for action on climate change.

Underwear For Humanity

Ethical Manufacturing

We make all of our underwear ethically in China. We ensure safe and respectful working conditions for all our makers. As part of our sustainable fashion practices, we are uncompromising on the materials and processes we use, including regenerated eucalyptus and utilising waste to create recycled items. We invented our own recycled elastic because we could not buy it.

Underwear For Humanity

Work Training Program

Getting and maintaining a job is something many take for granted. We are partnering with Social Engine to create paid workplace training opportunities in a non-judgemental environment that is supportive and set up for success. Our partnership and work program creates job training opportunities in warehousing, order fulfillment and customer service and work in processing for recycling to support work for youths at risk.
