VALUES

People-focussed

He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata
“What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.”

Planet-conscious

We achieve a circular economy solution for unwanted corporate furniture and equipment.

Innovative

We have an ‘out of the box’ approach to thinking sustainably and supporting communities.

Holistic

We are a ‘one stop’ zero waste sustainability solution to REDUCE, REDIRECT & REPURPOSE  for all redundant corporate stuff.

FROM THE FOUNDER

In 2015 whilst walking out of a friend’s accounting business, I noticed one of his offices stacked high with computers, desks, chairs and other unwanted goods. That struck a chord with me; how many times during my corporate career did I see similar goods simply thrown away? How many times did I leave an unwanted phone, laptop or tablet lying in a drawer?

Thanks to my years of social sector experience, I saw those redundant goods through fresh eyes; they were no longer a waste of space, rather a pathway to bringing about social and environmental change. 

All Heart NZ has developed over time to include our Repurpose and Reduce partnerships. 

As you learn more about our heart, I hope you will be encouraged.
