Sweat & Flex are excited to announce that we will be pledging a donation of 3% from our total sales to Mind Blank.
We are motivated to make a difference.
We will be tracking and reporting the donations raised by our Sweat & Flex customers and will be sure to let you know that every sale counts & your purchase will make a difference.
WHY MIND BLANK?
Mind Blank exists because every 3 hours in Australia more than one person will take their life by way of suicide (ABS, 2017), of this, 15 more twelve to seventeen year olds make an attempt (Orygen, 2017).
Mind blank’s aim
Mind blank are focused on reducing the risk of suicide through interactive workshops in schools, workplaces, and communities.

Putting our money where our mouth is.
We want to lead by example.
It’s no secret that the Australian manufacturing industry has taken a HUGE razor scooter to the shins in the past decade.
It has also become obvious that Australia’s dependency on import creates quite a pickle when we experience events such as volatile exchange rates, trade embargos & most recently worldwide health pandemics.
What are we going to do about it?
We are pledging at Sweat & Flex to commence production on Australian shores as soon as we are financially viable to do so.
Our goal is to create opportunities for manufacturing positions, logistics & most importantly, put more back in to the Australian economy.
This will involve obtaining a commercial premises and a serious outlay for our manufacturing equipment but we are COMMITTED.
We will be tracking this goal by each financial quarter and will be able to report our progress as soon as we have enough financial data to put together projections.
