Month: November 2016

In June 2016 Tastex launched Tasmania’s FIRST COMMUNITY SOLAR PROJECT fundraiser — a Crowd Funding initiative to raise the necessary funds to install 100 solar panels on the roof of Tastex, a not-for-profit knit mill, based in Glenorchy that provides meaningful employment and training to people with intellectual disabilities.

We are thrilled and delighted with the generosity of the Tasmanian community and we are happy to announce that the TASTEX SOLAR PANELS are now installed and generating electricity for our knitting machines, embroidery machines and sewing machines.


We’re generating our own power
— saving money and preserving our planet —
thanks to our community.

Thank you to everyone who made our project a reality and helped to reduce our environmental impact.
