OUR PACKAGING
Here at Zulu & Zephyr we are committed to having a positive impact on the environment and our global community, not only within our supply chain but all facets of our brand. We take pride in knowing that our product also serves as a purpose for the greater good. The impact plastic pollution has on our oceans is an issue close to our hearts and the reason why eliminating plastic from our supply chain has been at the forefront of our sustainability policy. 

Zulu & Zephyr goods now travel from our makers to you in our glassine paper bags. Glassine paper is transparent and a great alternative to any plant based biodegradable bags. By switching to paper, this means that your garment bag is 100% compostable at home, without the risk of any harmful contamination. Of course they are also 100% recyclable. All online orders are packaged in 100% recycled eco mailers that are compostable or recyclable.

 

PACKAGING

As an ongoing commitment to reducing our plastic footprint, we are in the process of gaining Plastic Neutral certification on our product range which is an assessment of the volume of plastic used in our products, primary and secondary packaging. We can then reduce and/or offset this through projects run by Plastic Collective, which guarantee that 70% of our offsetting fees fund remote and vulnerable community recycling projects. 

Zulu & Zephyr marketing material is printed on carbon neutral ECOstar paper stock that is 100% recycled post-consumer.



GARMENT BAGS

For Resort 24 we have udgraded our garment bags to glassine paper bags. Glassine paper is transparent and a great alternative to any plant based biodegradable bags. By switching to paper, this means that your garment bag is 100% compostable at home, without the risk of any harmful contamination. Of course they are also 100% recyclable.



OUR IMPACT

Since transitioning to biodegradable garment bags back in 2018, we have saved countless plastic bags from ending up in landfill. Compared with using the industry standard plastic poly bags, which would remain in the environment or landfill for 20+ years - our glassine paper garment bags have already broken down. Within 6 months at least 90% of our garment bags have become organic matter. 

 

E-COMM MAILERS

We use 100% recycled paper mailers and boxes for all online and wholesale orders. All online orders are shipped in FSC certified, post consumer recycled paper mailers. 

Using recycled paper reduces our need for raw materials as well as diverts countless tricky-to-recycle polymailers from landfill. Our paper mailers can be recycled in curbside bins or added to your home compost as a carbon component. 

Since we begin using recycled paper mailers to ship all online orders, we have saved approx. 2500kg of plastic per year. That’s a big reduction in non-renewable petroleum based raw materials, instead we are using post-consumer paper material which is a natural, renewable and recyclable resource.  

The purchase of our e-comm mailers also contributes to the removal of plastic and pollution from the ocean. In 2020 we removed over 210kg of plastic waste from the ocean through Grounded Packaging and their support of Seabin Project
