Welcome to Zea, where we are more than just a Certified B Corporation that develops natural health and wellness products. We are a community dedicated to improving the quality of people's lives while living in harmony with this magnificent Earth.
Our Founder, Hayden Brass, has set the example, and for over a decade, we have been quietly making decisions that serve the planet we call home. On this World Environment Day, let's explore seven small but impactful ways we are serving the Earth at Zea.
1. No Added Extras that Can Harm the Planet
At Zea, we believe in the power of nature. That's why we have never included parabens, phthalates, or any other questionable extras in our health and wellness products. We prioritise organic and natural, plant-based ingredients whenever possible. By doing so, we ensure that our products not only benefit you but also safeguard the magnificence of our Earth.
2. Responsibly Sourced, Earth-Friendly Ingredients
When it comes to our products, sustainability is key. Take our Kunzea Muscle Balm, for example, which contains sustainably sourced Kunzea Oil and organic Australian Raw Beeswax. We go the extra mile to partner with suppliers who meet rigorous COSMOS standards and embrace sustainable practices.
This means that every time you choose Zea, you are making a choice that is better for both people and the planet.
3. Compostable, Recyclable, and Carbon Neutral Shipping
Our commitment to the environment extends beyond our products to the way we ship them. Every order is packaged in biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable pouches or boxes made from recycled materials. Rest assured, the packaging we use is eco-friendly every single time.
By recycling or composting our shipping materials, you never have to worry about adding to your carbon footprint. We are also constantly exploring new ways to streamline our production processes to minimise our use of the Earth's resources.
4. Easily Recyclable Bottles, Jars, and Tubes
At Zea, we strive to make it effortless for you to make sustainable choices. That's why our bottles, jars, and tubes are designed for easy recycling. For instance, our Zea Relief Kunzea Pain Relief Cream comes in a recyclable, eco-conscious tube made from PCR plastic. By opting for our products, you contribute to a healthier planet by reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
5. No Animal Testing, EVER
Living in harmony with our planet means respecting all creatures that call it home. That's why we never test our products on animals, and we never will. We are currently undergoing certification to validate our commitment to being 100% cruelty-free.
When you choose Zea, you can have peace of mind knowing that our products are as compassionate to animals as they are to your well-being.
6. 1% For the Planet
We are thrilled to announce our official partnership with 1% for the Planet. As a member, we proudly donate 1% of all our revenue to support environmental and social non-profits dedicated to driving positive change for our planet.
By choosing Zea, you actively contribute to the collective effort of safeguarding the Earth and creating a better future for all.
7. Locally Manufactured & Sustainable Farming Practices
As an Australian family business, we take pride in manufacturing all our Zea products right here in Australia. This not only supports our local economy but also helps reduce transportation-related carbon emissions. Furthermore, we prioritise working with local farmers, manufacturers, and suppliers who share our commitment to sustainable farming and fair trade practices.
These dedicated farmers refrain from using artificial fertilisers, pesticides, or GMOs, ensuring that the crops we source are as pure and eco-friendly as possible. Many of our suppliers are also COSMOS and cGMP certified, guaranteeing the quality and sustainability of every ingredient we use.
