SCRgroup
SCRgroup is Australia's largest and most innovative company for the recovery of preloved clothing and other post-consumer household items.

Each year, we divert over 25 million kilograms of clothing from landfill and instead giving them a second life in local and global communities where they are needed most or recycling them into new products.

We offer solutions to the community for local government, national and local shopping centres, schools, private organisations, charities and retailers.

Our business model is based on maximising social and environmental impact. We work with Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs) and social enterprises to provide employment opportunities for people living with disabilities and youth at risk. We also support and work with major Australian charities by buying back items of clothing that haven't sold in their stores. This provides a vital and sustainable income towards their important social causes and reduces their costs. Through our clothing collection programs and monetary donations, we contribute over $1.99 million to Australian charities annually.

Approximately 94% of what we collect is diverted from landfill. What can not be reused, is either turned into rags or converted into an alternate fuel, called biofuel. SCRgroup is also researching fibre to fibre recycling options through their global partnerships to offer their clients and to contribute to an evolving circular economy in Australia and offshore.

SCRgroup is voluntarily complying with the Modern Slavery Act with our own Modern Slavery Statement. We are also undertaking a BCorp certification and aligning our business activities with the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.

MIRRARME
MIRRARME is 3D/AR virtual try-on platform designed for fashion retailers Showcase your entire collection in 3D and let your clients virtually try-on, with a mirror model of themselves

MIRRARME, a virtual try-on service that allows customers to see themselves in the latest fashion from online retailers.

Firstly we convert a retailers clothing into 3D, via a process called photogrammetry. Retailers simply send us images of their clothing, which we covert with our AI into a 3D model. With this tech, we are able to remove the mannequin or models from the images to leave a perfect 3D mirror of the clothing.

Secondly, via our app, we create a 3D mirror model of the client from a single headshot and a couple of measurements. Within 45 seconds, the client has a mirror model of themselves with the added benefit of calculating the best fit, based on the fashion retailers sizing guidelines.

Finally, the client selects the 3D clothing from the online store and the MIRRARME app opens to show both the client and clothing in 3D. We then take it a step further with AR for a full 360 view, where the client can walk around the mirror model of themselves and see the clothing from every angle. Providing a personalized shopping experience.

Whilst no one can fully replicate the in-store try-on experience, MIRRARME goes pretty close.
