DZLA was created by me…Darren or Dazz as I’m known & family run out of our home in Altona Beach, Melbourne Australia.
Our clothing is custom printed/embroidered by each order to maintain that freshly made comfort using quality materials & with simple designs that you can wear everyday whilst knowing you are making a real difference to our Planet & our People
Our Sustainability Journey:
♻️ Over 90% of our products are using eco-friendly, recycled or organic materials & there is no use of animal fur in our products.
♻️ Our orders are fulfilled mainly out of our centers in the US, Latvia, Brisbane or Melbourne with strict ethical standards on both fair wages & work conditions for employees & with around 81% of our orders being delivered in the same region they’re fulfilled, helps with reducing the CO₂ emissions produced when transporting orders.
♻️ Our products are printed on demand for customers to avoid the over production of items & reduce the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfill to help the planet and our fulfilment centers & suppliers re-use textile off cuts to make scrunches & other products to avoid textile waste.
♻️ We use either recycled cardboard packaging or packaging made of post-consumer recycled plastics.
We are also trying to help make a real difference so have partnered with the amazing organisation 'SeaTrees' out of California in the US doing great things to help our planet by reforesting our oceans to help our planet even further.
We also give back 10% of all our profits to further supporting youth & adult mental health through our fantastic partnership with Australian organisation 'headspace'
We aim to help our Planet and our People & would love to have you join DZLA & be part of this exciting journey together.
We feel more positive each day & thankful for increased awareness on such important issues like climate change & our mental health and wellbeing.
We have joined forces with our key partners Headspace Australia and SeaTrees to help make a difference in both of these aspects and truly inspired with their dedication to making tomorrow a better day than today for us all.
We give 10% of all of our profits back to Headspace to help support youth and adult mental health & wellbeing and are helping to reforest our oceans by planting 1 mangrove tree for every item sold and helping to restoring kelp farms which are the one of the best way to reverse climate change.
