Zero Waste Club predict they have offset over 100,000 pieces of single use plastics from entering our environment thanks to the introduction of their reusable products. Reusing items means that there is no need for continue to buy disposable goods. So saving litter and resources.
They also plant a tree for each and every item sold. So far we have offsetting 307,828kgs of CO2 per year. These tree produce enough oxygen to support 930 human beings every year. As the trees mature, and produce seeds, they will give birth to millions and millions of new trees. So one act of planting one tree, will result in a multiplication effect of millions of other trees.
Animals are friends and have equal rights to thrive. So we will never ever use animal flesh or other parts in our products. To ensure that none of our bamboo or wood is from habitat forests, we ensure to use FSC certified materials. Which means that the bamboo is grown in man made protected bamboo forests that are harvested every 3 years. Rather than cutting down natural habitat.
Having a good income to live happily is very important. So at Zero Waste Club, they ensure our artisan and makers are paid way above the minimum wage and have great working condition. They also show where in the manufacturing country the product is produced and the working hours the makers work. It’s important to know where your product comes from and what the working conditions are like for those who produce the product.
