A Good Thing CIC

A Good Thing makes it easy for businesses to donate unwanted items to local charities, all using a simple app. Meaning less to landfill and more to a good cause.

The idea is simple: a business has something to spare (anything from a used laptop or some office furniture to surplus products) and a local charity has a need (they have the ideas and dedication, but need the resources to make it happen). A Good Thing makes the match! All using its simple app: it’s as easy as booking a room on Airbnb or buying on eBay.

On their membership with SWM, they say:

“The idea was simple: businesses are generating too much waste, while many charities are in need of more resources. What if the two could be connected? That’s why A Good Thing was created in 2020. But this is just the beginning of the journey: the A Good Thing pilot was launched in 2021 in the Thames Valley area, with some fantastic results. The platform is now scaling to charities and businesses right across the UK, reducing waste and building stronger communities.”
