Brand Focus: Zero Waste Club
Tuesday, 12 July 2022
We’re delighted to be working with Zero Waste Club here at Protect The Planet, as we’re able to add even more amazing eco-friendly products to our ever expanding online store.
Who are Zero Waste Club?
Pawan Saunya and Rishi Gupta are the dreamers, thinkers, innovators, environment saviours and Co-Founders of Zero Waste Club.
After feeling frustrated and let-down by the damage we have done to our planet, they decided they needed to do something about it.
While it’s encouraging to see the markets changing slowly, they noticed that a lot of ‘eco-friendly’ products are given a luxury label, making them unaffordable for many households. But worst still, they also found that many products sold under the ‘eco-friendly’ label stretch the definition of sustainability! So, they decided to start their own journey to produce truly sustainable, beautifully designed, ethical and vegan essentials at affordable prices.
Why choose Zero Waste Club products?
What we love about Zero Waste Club is that they are truly committed to making a positive change to our planet. Their long term goal is to be available in all major countries on earth, providing affordable alternatives to single use items to as many people as possible. To make happen they reinvest 100% of their profit into achieving this goal.
They use their profits to fund vital Research & Development to create new sustainable products, invest in new machinery and production methods to be as efficient as possible and of course to produce more stock to meet growing demand.
Additionally, Zero Waste Club are completely transparent about their products and how they are produced. For each product they sell they state on average how much the artisans are paid, where in the manufacturing country the product is produced and the working hours the makers work. Check out their transparency page for more information.
Zero Waste Club’s Environmental Impact
Another reason why we love Zero Waste Club is for their environmental impact. They predict they have offset over 300,000 pieces of single use plastics from entering our environment thanks to the introduction of their reusable products. Plus, for each product they sell they plant a tree, with over 300,000 trees planted so far and counting!
