Why we love this brand! 

Makers story: 'My name is Xiao Li Lin, I am 36 years old, I have been working with the company for 8 years. I have found well paying, consistent and satisfying work through this job. I live in Nanping County with my family and my hobbies are dancing and shopping. Nearly every evening after I finish work, I go to practice dancing.  It brings me a lot of joy and also keeps me healthy. I’m one of the people who is responsible for making bamboo toothbrushes. I polish the bamboo and make it super smooth. Then also ensure the bristles are in properly. I hope you love the toothbrush as much as I do.'

Why we love this brand! 

Feeling frustrated and let-down by the extent of the damage we have done to our environment, two friends went in search of answers. While the markets are changing slowly, they noticed that many products that are eco-friendly are given a luxury label. They also found that many products sold under the “eco” label tend to stretch the definition of sustainability. Thus they decided to start their own journey to produce truly sustainable, beautifully designed, ethical and vegan essentials at affordable prices.  

"We want to do more than just make beautiful eco-friendly products. So we are going to make the most transparent, ethical, sustainable goods company on earth. Opening up our supply chain fully for everyone to see. To show that there is a nicer way to do business. Hopefully this will inspire other businesses to do the same." -Pawan Saunya & Rishi GuptaCo-Founders of Zero Waste Club
