Is your charity in need of resources?

Published on 21 May, 2024

A Good Thing CIC  runs an online platform that allows businesses (of any size and any type) to quickly and easily give things away to local charities – meaning less to landfill and more to a good cause.

The idea is super simple: businesses are generating too much waste, while many charities need more resources. A Good Thing connects the two.

It’s really easy for charities and other not-for-profit organisations to get involved: it takes 30 seconds to register for a free account at, and then you can immediately begin to request any items that are on offer nearby.

Businesses can – and do! – give away literally anything they no longer need. Laptops, plastic bags, candles, stationery, gardening equipment, end-of-line clothing, packaging, crafting materials and half-used tins of paint have all been successfully donated to local charities via the platform… alongside the more traditional items like furniture and IT equipment.

The team at A Good Thing love to see things being saved from landfills. Companies can make such a difference to their communities by supporting the wonderful work of local charities.
