One of the main drivers for Zero Waste Path was that it is usually very hard to find information about the waste that happens before a product gets to the consumer, and this is also true for many sustainable products. The founders of ZWP, Bianca and Giulio therefore decided to create a company that wasn’t zero waste and sustainable only in the final packaging, but all along the production chain. They are huge fans of transparency, and they share all of their waste, practices and decisions on their Instagram and Facebook pages.
ZWP don't outsource anything - they manufacture all of their products in their workshop, they carefully select suppliers and take care of every aspect of what they do.
