Zizzz - Our Company Values
Honest: transparent and traceable
Sustainable: organic and local
We make products for our children and future generations, but don’t want to destroy the world to do so. So, we use organic and bio materials in our products - the first step in the Zizzz supply chain starts with sheep grazing in the Swiss Alps, not in a petroleum refinery. This is because our products are made of wool and cotton, not polyester, which is an oil and plastic-based product.
Our production and manufacture take place as locally as possible, to reduce both the financial and environmental costs of transportation. You may not know this, but the transportation industry is now the largest carbon emitter in the world – 16 of the world’s largest ships produce as much pollution as all the cars of the world combined!
Sustainable development is more than just environmental sustainability – it also includes social development and responsibility. Our logistical partner in Switzerland is the Buergerspital in Basel, which helps re-integrate disabled people into the general workforce. Not only do our partners at Buespi do a great job handling our logistics, but they also perform an important social mission at no added cost to the consumer.
Swiss: innovative and reliable
We live in this country and love it here.
Switzerland stands for certain qualities – Swiss products are known to be high-quality, reliable and durable. Since Switzerland has virtually no mineral resources, such as oil or metals, we have had to be innovative to compete. Science and technology play an important role in our economy, and we are proud to be part of this tradition. But Switzerland also has breathtaking landscapes, glittering mountain lakes and clean air. So, the Swiss are naturally concerned that economic activity should have as little impact possible on the environment.
Switzerland is also an essential part of the Zizzz story – it was while skiing in the Swiss Alps that the idea of using wool in our baby sleeping bags came to us. In addition, Swisswool, the primary material we use, is a product unique to Switzerland.
It is for these reasons that our logo shares the same colors as the Swiss flag.
