Atea Designs

In Australia, there is currently a gap in the market for an underwear range and brand that represents a size and colour inclusive product for women. At Atea Designs we are creating an underwear collection that makes women feel considered, confident, empowered and comfortable in one's skin. By embracing individuality with our line, it is our mission to help our clients feel good about themselves every day. By supporting our business, you'll also be contributing to a greater cause as we are committed to making a difference within our community. With every product sold, a percentage of the profits will be donated to one of three selected charities.

AthleteCare

In the global fitness market, there are limited products available to athletes that suffer with foot pain, restricting them from working-out or competing (or even from doing daily tasks!). At AthleteCare, we offer an Anti-fatigue Compression Sock that provides both support and pain relief to help athletes reach their full athletic potential. Whether you’re hitting the weights or running a marathon, our compression socks are guaranteed to reduce tiredness, cramping or pain in your lower legs, so you can get back to your favourite sport quicker. Get back on your feet and train harder, faster, and further – without being held back by pain!

Communibee Honey

Here at Communibee Honey, we are dedicated to solving the global decline in honey bee populations with the help of the community. This will be achieved by placing beehives on acreage properties which gives mutual benefits to the beekeeper and the landowner. In exchange for hosting the beehives, landowners will receive their own free, locally produced honey and the satisfaction of knowing that they have contributed to building bee populations. So help us save the bees, and 'bee' a part of the solution.

NXVAC

In the global punk and alternative community, fashion is not diverse, is expensive, is terrible quality and is nearly inacessible in Australia. At NXVAC, we create affordable, personalised, diverse, culturally traditional and high quality clothing for the community made by punks. We also create informational and funny content to support the community, allowing those who can't afford these quality products to be themselves.
