For us at ZWM, sustainability is not just a goal, it is also a means.

We want to contribute to the “Agenda 2030 Global Sustainable Development Goals,” to human welfare and to personal aesthetics. Sounds ambitious? It is! 

ZWM STANDS FOR ZERO WASTE MOVEMENT.

We manufacture our accessories from earth friendly compostable materials. Our packaging, even the string we use, is also made of 100 percent recycled and renewable materials. And we ensure that our next collection is always better than the previous one. 

Why biodegradable? Well, that’s simple. It is our contribution to solving the environmental pollution caused by recycling conventional plastics. Basically, TONS of wasted plastics are eventually destined to be burnt or buried in land during the recycling process. In fact, most of the plastic that exists today has been made in the last decade.

We want to drive development forward and are committed to never making a profit at the expense of climate change or people’s health. It is our way of contributing to the change we want to see in the world. 

MISSION

You don't have to be a hardcore environmentalist to make a difference. It's the little things, like riding your bike to work, bringing your own grocery bag when shopping and buying a product that is climate neutral – it all adds up. Especially when millions of other people start doing it also.

VISION

Make the best accessories and cause no unnecessary harm. Use business to drive change towards a greener tomorrow.

PURPOSE

ZWM is rooted in the belief that we as a company have a responsibility. We exist to drive change in our industry, and through responsible entrepreneurship, we offer a sustainable and climate-neutral alternative to todays fast plastics.

OUR LEGACY

We’re committed to minimizing our environmental impact by making products from environmentally friendly materials. Often biodegradable and always recyclable whilst producing them in a climate neutral way. 

SUSTAINABLE

A ZWM product should have no negative impact on our environment or contribute to littering in nature.

ACT RESPONSIBLY

We always act responsibly, and make sure people are treated fairly and with dignity.

QUALITY

We're affordable but we don't sacrifice on quality. Our products are made to cope with our daily lives.

GOOD DESIGN

Design is important to us. Our products are carefully designed for an active lifestyle, offering functionality such as protection and extra storage.
