OUR COMMITMENTS IN 2021
At Zulu & Zephyr we have been committed to supporting charitable causes, we take pride knowing our product also serves as a purpose for the greater good.
As an ongoing commitment to giving back we have strengthened our partnerships in recent years, to highlight unheard voices and promote meaningful change. 

1% FOR THE PLANET

Zulu & Zephyr has been a proud member of 1% for the Planet since 2020. We are part of a global network of more than 2000 business members, in over 60 countries, coming together to protect the future of our planet.
With a donation commitment of 1% of gross yearly sales on all our Signature Collection of swimwear, denim and organic tees & shirts, our pledge is to support value-aligned environmental non profits with a focus on creating the greatest impact. Since we joined the 1% for the Planet movement in 2020 we have supported Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network as well as Thread Together.
We also support 1% for the Planet indirectly through the onboarding of new suppliers that have also pledged 1% of their sales towards environmental non-profits such as Grounded Packaging.

OUR IMPACT

Our support of Seed Indigenous Youth Climate Network in 2020 meant a financial contribution of $3200 towards funding their climate justice initiatives with a focus on strong culture and commune values.
Thread Together were able to deliver hundreds of new garments to people in need through our gift of new, unworn clothing.

By choosing to produce our recycled paper kraft mailers with Grounded Packaging who pledge 1% of their sales to Seabin Project we have removed over 210kg of plastic waste from the ocean in 2020 alone.
We look forward to sharing the impact we have made in 2021.

In 2021 we have partnered with Worn For Good to promote circular fashion as a creative solution to tackling the issues of textile waste. In Australia, 6000kg of clothing is thrown out every 10 minutes, mostly ending up in landfill. What begun as a way to manage excess stock responsibly, our partnership with Worn For Good has engaged our community on social and environmental justice and the ways in which we can positively impact the world.

OUR IMPACT

"Thanks to your support, Zulu & Zephyr has helped us raise a total of  $17,609 for our charity partners. 

As a small start-up, your contribution has made a significant difference and we never underestimate what this can do for the charities we partner with and the programs they can continue to deliver, thanks to your generosity and involvement.   

In terms of Zulu & Zephyr's direct impact to date, if the amount raised was to be donated to one charity alone, you have single-handedly:
  • Provided a hot meal and a safe and comfortable place for a woman escaping domestic violence to stay for 35 nights
  • Provided 35 x home-delivered confidence kits to people undergoing treatment for cancer (Look Good Feel Better)
  • Provided a child with transport to school for 35 weeks in remote areas"
