Environmental and Socially Responsible Practices
Zookeeper builds its products as an open repository of learning. We hope our products serve as conversation starters for children and adults alike, creating mindful spaces to listen, watch, feel and grow.
If the Zookeeper had to choose one principle to live by, that would be to tread lightly on the planet. As our company takes baby steps forwards and turns them into strides, we remember to walk slowly and purposefully. We do this by taking others along with us and minimizing waste as we go along.
Here are a few things you should know about us as we set our eyes on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
SDG 5 and SDG 8: Gender Equality and Decent Work and Economic Growth
90% of our team comprises women.
Our products are the work-womanship of skilled women artisans from families with a history in traditional Indian crafts. Zookeeper supports women's livelihoods and traditional artisanal knowledge by partnering with artisanal clusters in Gujarat and Rajasthan, India.
SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
Our textile products are made in India from 100% ethically sourced cotton. We strive towards a 100% sustainable supply chain.
90% of our products are shipped to you in 100% recyclable materials. We strive towards making this a 100% recyclable practice.
We commit to a slow production and consumption cycle by making extremely durable products of high quality. They have been tested for colour fastness and will stay with the little ones for a long time to come.
