Working Towards a Healthier Greener Tomorrow

A Brief History

One Ten Enterprises is a wholly Australian owned company that was established in 1989 when the founder noticed that ‘op shops’ had little choice but to pay huge sums of money to dispose of their surplus stock.

One Ten Enterprises became the solution that:

  • Turned a significant expense for charities into a new income stream for Australian charities
  • Drastically reduced waste/landfill in NSW and eventually QLD
  • Benefited the Australian economy with export dollars
  • Created employment opportunities in Australia, Dubai and Africa
  • Provided small business opportunities in Africa

One Ten Enterprises is 100% Australian Owned and Operated.

One Ten Enterprises has no Australian Retail Outlets, 100% of purchases from Australian Charities are exported.

Supporting the Australian Economy through the earning of Export USD.

African families are given the opportunity of developing a small business through One Ten Enterprises Social Welfare Program.

Supporting the particular African Economies in which One Ten Enterprises is present by helping small businesses to grow.

Our Point of Difference is Benevolence & Honesty

  • Our founder vowed to never complete with, or undercut Australian charities.
  • One Ten Enterprises does not sell any stock via retail stores nor do we own or operate collection bins.
  • We purchase all of our stock directly from charities, ensuring they receive the donations and Australian consumers have ‘first dibs’ via op shops.
  • Every item we purchase from charities is sorted in Dubai then exported to Africa
  • One Ten Enterprises has never, and will never, undermine a charitable organisation in Australia or overseas, that promise
    alone sets up apart from other commercial textile recyclers.
How it Works

Australian charities inevitably end up with items that are either unsuitable for sale or haven’t been sold after a certain time on display, this is referred to as surplus stock.

In the past surplus stock was sent to landfill and the disposal fees cost charities tens of thousands of dollars a year.

Aside from cost, the environmental impact was huge, textile waste releases greenhouse gases and also leaches toxins and dyes into the earth.

One Ten Enterprises purchases surplus stock from Australian charities and keeps
it out of landfill. We sort it, bale it and export only saleable items to Africa.

Head Office – Sydney

Here we receive all of the stock we purchase from charities around Australia. The stock is baled and shipped to our state of the art sorting facility in Dubai.

Sorting Warehouse - Dubai

Here we employ 168 migrant workers from developing nations. We provide them with above award wages and working conditions that are on par with those you would expect here in Australia. Our employees sort the stock into categories and bale it for shipping to Africa. Our elderly employees have sewing bays and are able to carry out minor repairs such as reattaching a button or restitching a seam.

Distribution Warehouse - Africa

Africa. Here we sell all of the stock at a low per kilo rate. Our buyers are small business owners. We also operate a charity in Africa and provide free clothing to mothers who are in need of assistance.
