Victoria is Working to Divert 80% of all Material Away from Landfill by 2030

It was a proud moment for the Assembled Threads team to host Minister for the Environment Steve Dimopoulos, along with Matt Genever, Sustainability Victoria CEO and the team from Sustainability Victoria. We are a small organisation working hard to drive impact and change, so the acknowledgement for the work we have done creating our recycled vests, and championing early stage textile waste concrete research with Vic Uni means a lot to us.⁠

We were able to show the Minister the recycled fibre vests now worn proudly AND nationwide by the teams Icon, Barpa and Minicon. ⁠

The Minister advised us all of the massive landfill diversion targets now required in Victoria. He noted our use of recycled textiles in vests, and our new circularity program providing on site uniform collection, recycling used garments but most importantly was pleased to hear we were up cycling new/barely worn uniforms and returning them back into use. ⁠

At AT we get our strength from working collaboratively, and we were were excited to invite Ben Kaminsky textile.recycling, Dr Malindu Sandayake Victoria University creator of tex-crete, Jackson Ellis Founder of cacticonserve, creator of eco safety bunting all key partners with Assembled Threads on sustainable product development and recycling.⁠

We loved the quote from Matt Genever, Sustainability Victoria CEO “Assembled Threads makes more than your average high vis vest”⁠

That’s us!! Nothing we do is average:) Partner with us, buy our vests and join the recycle revolution.⁠
