Message from the maker:
Hi, I’m Cai Kuihua, one of the artisans who helped to make the jute twine. I am 51 years old and this is my 7th year working here. When I’m free, I like cooking for my family, and going to the park to walk. I also like listening to traditional Chinese opera.
This work makes me very happy and provides income for my family, I live in Jinhua, I hope you will like jute twine.

The jute twine is shipped via sea freight to minimise the carbon footprint of each product. We offset our carbon emissions and more by planting a tree for every item we sell.
The product does not have any animal derivatives and no unnatural substances were used. No plastic or chemicals used.
Zero Waste Club was founded in the UK by two students who wanted to make Plastic Free living easy and cheap as possible. They now provide a range of plastic free essentials.
