Here at Zulu & Zephyr we are committed to having a positive impact on the environment and 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.
Ethics & Sustainability
Zulu & Zephyr are committed to limiting our social and environmental impacts not only through our sourcing and supply chain but on a more direct, daily basis in our headquarters and warehouse. Choosing lower impact materials and processes are key. All of Zulu & Zephyr marketing material is printed on carbon neutral ECOstar paper stock that is 100% recycled post-consumer. Our own in-house recycling practices ensure less waste is transferred into landfill.
We engage with our suppliers to develop, maintain & improve socially responsible sourcing and manufacturing practices. Through internationally recognised certifications & auditing framework we can ensure all our suppliers are in line with the values of our brand.
Accreditations include the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and OEKO-TEX certificates that certify we are eliminating &/or reducing the toxic chemicals used in the production of our trims and fabrics. As well as the ethical & environmental auditing framework, Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI). The code of conduct that monitors & supports 11 key principles ranging from fair remuneration to ethical business behaviour.

Zulu & Zephyr is a made for the sun, the salt & the sea. The impacts plastic pollution has on our oceans is an issue close to our hearts and the reason why eliminating plastic from or supply chain has been forefront of our sustainability policy.
Zulu & Zephyr goods now travel from our makers to you in our biodegradable, corn starch garment bags that are home compostable. Switching from plastic poly bags to a biodegradable alternative has been a big step in eliminating plastic from our sampling & production process. Now our sights are set on our warehouse & dispatch — from July 2019 all online order packaging will be 100% recyclable or compostable.
