About ReThink Store


To create a community that is more inclusive of those with disability and more sustainable at home.

Mission Statement

We strive to provide employment for people living with a disability through the retailing of lower waste household consumables. We do this to create a community that is greener, kinder and ultimately stronger together.

How we do it 

ReThink provides everyday household consumables (non-perishable) in mostly repurposed[1] and reusable packaging[2] to minimise waste. Products that are locally sourced where possible or made in house are stocked.

The profit from sales is used to employ a person with disabilities within the store to provide workplace experience and social connection.

Information on better consumer waste management is collated and provided to the community to improve waste practices and increase awareness locally.

Who are we 

ReThink info hub + store (ReThink) is supported by Community Plus Queensland. Ideated by Megan Ashcroft, the ReThink info hub + store was developed by Megan and Kelley Prowse with the assistance of Community Plus and a growing and highly passionate group of volunteers. ReThink was formed on 10 February 2019 and opened for trade 2 April 2019.
