Garage Sale Trail

13 November 2021
21 November 2021

Join 400,000 Australians putting secondhand first at two big weekends of garage sales!  Sell or shop at garage sales online or, if restrictions allow, in your community on 13 – 14 and 20 – 21 November.

You’ll divert valuable resources from landfill and make or save money in the process.

Almost half (45%) of all global CO2e emissions come from making, consuming and disposing of stuff, meaning how we choose to consume and use things can have a big impact in the fight against climate change.

By buying or selling your stuff at a garage sale and choosing to reuse, you not only make or save money, but also keep items circulating and in use for longer reducing your carbon, waste and water footprint. It’s the circular economy in action!

Get Involved!

Registrations to host your own sale open on Saturday 10 September and can be made by clicking here.

More information on how to host a sale and how you can get involved is available here.
