Zansus, we waste nothing. We use resources that are destined to the
landfill. Our materials are discards that come form the upholsterers
table before they are placed in the trash. If these items are trashed,
they ultimately land up in the landfill. These fabrics are high quality,
durable fabrics suitable for furnishings hence they are treated with
backing and stain resistant - fire resistant materials. Once discarded
they remain in the landfill for a long time. Maybe forever!
Being a green business, we diligently donate whatever we cannot use
thus going back into the cycle of re-use (cradle-to-cradle philosophy).
We try to incorporate even the smallest of pieces in creative ways and
minimize our waste. For eg: We use smaller pieces as tags inside our
bags! If the aesthetics of the fabric is not suitable we use in on the
inside as a stabilizer for the flap or the body of the purse. Small
cutouts are used for wrapping a bundle before it gets sewed. And
whatever we do not use, we donate to various organizations such as RAFT,
SPREADING THE MESSAGE OF SUSTAINABILITY...
Did you know, that when you buy a Zansus creation, you are not only making an Eco-chic
fashion statement, you are also supporting a worthy cause?
10% of the profits from Zansus Purses sales go to an Environmental
Education Program called EMPOWERING WORLD CHANGE - a not-for-profit
organization, that promotes environmental awareness and sustainability
through education, collaboration and outreach programs, in schools,
colleges, libraries, public organizations, city events and festivals.
