We encourage locally made products. Our aim is to include others, especially mother, elderly and women entrepreneurs, by creating local employment opportunities. All our handmade and handcrafted products are made by work from home mother/ladies, elderly ladies & community upliftment projects. Often these women are the sole breadwinners in the family. They hold together families affected by poverty. These ladies in spite of the grief, poverty, stigma, and violence, care for their children, families and grandchildren. They may also be nursing the dying and bringing up orphaned grandchildren on their own. We aim to up-skill & reskill these ladies and turn the tide on poverty & ill-health in their homes & communities and give them a decent wage.
Everybody starts their zero-waste journey from some where different, based on what catches their interest. We started by feeling uneasy about the stuff we own and throw out after a single shop. After a little bit of research, we realized that there are lots of products that we can use and simple things that we can do to achieve a waste-free life. we decided to make small changes, to live more simply and more sustainably. However, finding and getting these eco-friendly products turned out to be difficult. So here we am with a first set of products to help you with your zero-waste life. Browse these colorful and trendy zero-waste plastic free products.
