LOCAL OPY Make Waves
LOCAL OPY and their community raised thousands of dollars to support marine conservation!
LOCAL OPY, a Brisbane Meanjin-based op shop, donates 100% of profits raised each quarter to a selected charity. Last autumn LOCAL OPY along with their clients generously donated $15,441 to AMCS – the highest funds they have raised for a charity.
Speaking about their support of AMCS, Brigid Gordon, Founder of SWOP and LOCAL OPY says, “We are so grateful to the Australian Marine Conservation Society for all the important work they do to safeguard our beautiful oceans and precious marine life. We hope to support their mission again in the future.”
Op shops aren’t just a great way to grab a bargain – they’re also great for our planet, by giving clothes a second life (reducing the footprint over their life) and keeping them out of landfill. This also eliminates the intensive processes of creating new clothing.
AMCS sincerely thanks LOCAL OPY for this wonderful contribution to support important ocean conservation work.
Thank you to our ocean-loving community. If you would like to raise funds to protect our oceans email [email protected].
