Having a good income to live happily is very important. So at Zero Waste Club, we ensure our artisan and makers are paid way above the minimum wage and have great working condition. Under each product page, you can find out on average how much the artisans are paid.
Story of maker
For every item we produce, we show a story of one of the makers who were involved in bringing the product to life. We will be making videos and sharing their stories when the Covid-19 situation has passed. You can find the maker stories under each product.
Production location and working hours
We 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. You can see this information under each product.
No animals killed, harmed or used
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.
Offsetting 100,000+ single use items
We predict we have offset over 100,000 pieces of single use plastics from entering our environment thanks to the introduction of our reusable products such as the reusable collapsible straws. Reusing items means that there is no need for continue to buy disposable goods. So saving litter and resources.
100,000 Trees Planted
As you may already know, we plant a tree for each and every item we sell. So far we have offsetting 600,000kgs 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.
What do you do with your profits?
The long term goal of Zero Waste Club is to be available in all major countries on earth, providing affordable alternatives to single use items. To make this possible, we reinvest 100% of our profit into achieving this goal.
