Commitment to Sustainability

At QTCo, we are committed to corporate environmental responsibility. Being community focused and conscious of the environment we live and work in, means we consider social and environmental matters in every aspect of our operations.


Solar Panels

Our Kedron building encompasses 129 solar panels, this contribution of renewable energy drastically reduces QTCo’s power usage.


QTCo focuses on reducing waste generated by our operations. We aim to eliminate, reuse or recycle. Cardboard and paper items are recycled in dedicated bins or reused where possible.  Ink wastage is stored in supplied tanks that are safely collected by an environmental agency.

Eco-friendly Inks

We immerse ourselves in the latest innovations, emerging trends and find elements of joy in thinking outside the square! With creative thinking we continue to inspire unique promotional products that grab user attention, promote brand recognition, whilst protecting the environment by using eco friendly inks.


QTCo’s strength is its people, their dedication to service levels and their will to excel for their customers. QTCo continue to be committed to the successful delivery of products from inception to completion, maintaining outstanding communication with customers and whenever possible going that little step further to offer customers the 100% ‘care’ factor QTCo is famous for.

Supporting our Community

QTCo gives back to the community where we live and work. Charitable giving via donations of surplus inventory, branded merchandise or monetary assistance are key components of QTCo’s overall corporate sustainability strategy.


QTCo is a member of Sedex, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. Sedex provides member companies with a secure web-based platform for storing and sharing information on four key pillars: Health and Safety, Labour Standards, Business Ethics and The Environment.  Being a member of Sedex is a sign of QTCo’s willingness to share information and to utilise this information to help manage and improve ethical standards within the supply chain.

Textile Sustainability


210,000 tonnes of clothing are donated annually in Australia.

Repurpose and reimagine your existing clothing before letting it go.

Mend damaged items, have clothing altered, or completely transform your textiles into something brand new to reduce your pressure on our recycling systems. You can upcycle your t-shirts into cleaning clothes/rags, scrunchies and handkerchiefs.


Australians are the second highest purchaser of new clothing (383,000 tonnes), buying an average of 56 items per person in a year. Only a fraction of these are recyclable.

You can ensure your QTCo merchandise maintains it’s high quality by following our garment care instructions. Maintaining your garments through proper care significantly extends their lifespan, meaning you can retain your items for longer periods of time.


Each year, Australians alone send $500 million worth of fashion clothing to the tip, yet over 95% of it can be recycled and reused.

If you’re not able to repurpose your clothing items, consider saving your clothing from landfill by finding a donation point or booking a clothing collection  or even donate them to your local mechanics and painters.
