Beginning Boutique’s commitment is simple; we want to be better and do better, for the planet, for the people, and for the future.
We recognise our ability to give back and are so excited to be able to dedicate a space for our corporate charity partners to educate and inspire.
We pledge to donate 1% of all profits to our charity partners.
Supporting diversity and equality aligns with the values of Beginning Boutique through our BB Better commitment to do better for the People & our Future. We are delighted to be recognised as a Corporate Partner of Stars Foundation.
The mission of Stars Foundation is to support and enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls and young women to make active choices towards realising their full potential in all aspects of their development and wellbeing. Since it was founded in 2015, Stars has contributed significantly to improving education and health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young women by providing full-time, in-school mentoring and engagement programs.
A good education is one factor most likely to reduce Indigenous disadvantage in Australia. In 2020, Stars saw 98 per cent of its senior students complete Year 12. At the end of June 2020, 91 per cent of Stars 2019 graduates had successfully transitioned into full-time work or further study. The average rate for Aboriginal and Torres Strait girls and young women is 65%.
Beginning Boutique’s donation will help the organisation to develop 55 personal development plans, help fund full-time, intensive educational, social and emotional support, fund extra-curricular activities and excursions, as well as school materials such as uniforms and technology.Learn More About Stars Foundation
Our partnership with Greenfleet has been established to support our native biodiverse forestry within Australia and New Zealand, while also committing to do better for the Planet & the Future, by neutralising the impact of carbon emissions.
Greenfleet is a leading Australian not-for-profit environmental organisation and Australia’s first carbon offset provider. Since 1997 Greenfleet has planted over 9.6 million trees creating more than 500 native forests. Greenfleet forests are legally protected for up to 100 years, to capture carbon emissions, conserve biodiversity, and restore habitat for wildlife, including many endangered species.
As a fashion retailer our biggest environmental impact as a brand is through our manufacturing process and freight. We are able to help neutralise our carbon emissions produced through these processes, contributing to native restoration projects reducing our carbon footprint and improving our Planet & Future.
Beginning Boutique’s aim is to offset more than 10,000 tonnes of CO2 - equivalent to the production of approximately 400,000 t-shirts this year.Learn More About Green Fleet
