Yes. A social enterprise or social business is defined as a business that has specific social objectives that serve its primary purpose. Social enterprises seek to maximize profits while maximizing benefits to society and the environment. Their profits are principally used to fund social programs.
The word artisan traditionally means a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
Brand Zero works closely with small scale artisans, which are mostly run by a family or village union and do not possess the tools for marketing. Brand Zero helps them by using its values of fair trade, product enhancement and good working conditions. We run several campaigns to raise awareness and funds for the artisans.
Completely agree with this. When it comes to the environment, sometimes the best purchase we make are the ones when we chose not to buy. However, given the culture that we have grown in, and the joy we get from shopping, we empathise with everyone and are here to provide an eco-friendly alternative for those who want a guilt free experience.
One of the main reasons why Brand Zero was formed was to build a brand with shared values of love for the nature and the artisans. The idea was to build a brand that is transparent in intent and honest in its execution. The brand caters to conscious consumers who deserve to know more about the entire journey of the products that they use and stay away from marketing concepts like green washing.
