Sustainability

Our Treehouse is built on three pillars

We’re committed to being a leader on the path towards a sustainable, outdoor lifestyle. And to keep us on (hiking) track, we stand by three core values:

  • 01


    People: in the spirit of symbiosis, we consider the people we work with our greatest value. And make sure everybody’s needs can be met in equal measure. No exclusions. No rain checks. 

  • 02

    Planet: it’s a bit of a big deal. Everything we do, in business and in design, we do while wearing a sustainability hat. Not to brag, but we wear it well. Nice and snug. Hat jokes aside, we promise to keep pushing for change, challenging ourselves to do better, and learning everything we can along the way.

  • 03

    Product: some of the finest designs we’ve ever seen have come straight outta the earth (have you seeeeen an old Mountain Ash?). And we’re inspired to make products that are equally good-looking, and long-lasting. Made by people who are the best at what they do. 

We are Cam and Elise. The planet’s most curious pupils.

We found each other on the the beach in Torquay, and we’ve been exploring our favourite rugged southern coastline, and far beyond it, ever since. What’s around the corner? Who knows. But as long as there are corners to explore, we’ll keep asking. The open road as our guide, and the sunshine our soulmate. 


For us, Zorali is an adventure. An invisible path even more exhilarating than the ones we take through the trees and over the boulders. We’d love for you to join us, out here in this giant playground where all paths meet. 

We stepped outside. We breathed in hard. And we breathed out Zorali.

Getting outside is good for the soul. And we created the word Zorali to mean just that. Zorali means going where you won’t need fancy gear – your own two feet will do. Going where the air comes at breathable altitudes, where your mind feels free from stress and strife and struggle. Because cobwebs belong in the trees, not your mind. So take a deep breath in, breathe out, and go.

Commitments

Faith in the future.

And a fire in our gut.

Protecting our business means protecting our planet first. We can’t have one without the other – and, call us greedy, but we really want them both. As nature is our inspiration, we focus our efforts on keeping it calm and wild by:

Choosing materials responsibly

By using natural fibres such as hemp, organic cotton and recycled fabrics, we’re helping you connect with nature before you’ve even stepped out the door. 

  • Hemp is breathable and soft. Plus it’s good at removing carbon dioxide from the air and keeping its impact lower than a drunken game of limbo. 
  • Organic cotton is gentle on your bod, and doesn’t put chemicals or pesticides into the soil. And while its non-organic sibling takes pretty long showers, the organic kind is much better with water. 
  • Recycled fabrics keep waste out of landfill, reduce demand for petroleum-based raw materials, and limit contamination of the air, soil and water. What a little workhorse.

Taking the ethics and cleanliness within our supply chain seriously

Sure, we like to escape the crowds and talk to trees. But we care deeply about humans, too. Our code of conduct ensures all the people in our supply chain are treated well, paid properly and have a safe spot to work. And we take time to chat face-to-face with our factories – when we can get the trees to hush that is. (Blabber mouths.)

Putting our money where our feet are

We foster responsible partnerships, so we can all do better by our planet. That means we:

  • Are carbon neutral. The only footprint here, folks, is the one our hiking boots leave in the dirt. We offset the rest, with Climate Neutral. 
  • Donate 1% of revenue to the preservation and restoration of the natural environment. While we still have the chance.
  • Plant trees with Eden Projects. 10 of them planted for every product you buy – to keep the planet happy and make sure the trees are always there to catch our jokes.

Aiming higher with our goals – to the stars and back.

With good business, we can do good things for the future. By 2025, we aim to:

  • Close the loop, ensuring everything we make can keep going ‘round and ‘round through repairs, resales and recycling.
  • Ensure all makers are environmentally certified, ethical, transparent and the kind of people we’d love to share a campfire with.
  • Grow our own forest. Our goal is to plant 1 million trees by 2025. Wild, huh? Good. That’s just how we like it.


The fire in our gut won’t burn out like Sunday night campsite. It’s a roaring commitment to keep pushing hard for the good of the planet. Watch as we continue to update our goals and progress, as we deepen our contribution. 

Forest Project

    An offering for Planet Earth, now with every purchase

    But wait. There’s more! Your purchase of outdoor goods will come with ten invisible donations in the form of trees. You may not be able to see them, but the planet will feel them as they go back into areas of severe deforestation in Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia and Mozambique. And that’s not all! The more trees we donate, the more local employment in those areas will grow. Along with a continual decline in global warming and risks of flooding. All of which keeps the planet happy. Listen closely next time you’re outside. Sometimes you can hear a ‘thank you’ get caught in the wind.


    Humans. Buy for nature.

    Plants. Return to Planet.

We are Carbon Neutral

The only thing we want to put into the air is our hair out the window (and a bit of morning breath, because we’re human). So we work with Climate Neutral to measure, offset and reduce our carbon emissions. To make us wildly, fondly, completely carbon neutral.

What does a footprint look like?

Carbon emissions turn up to every party, uninvited. That means we have to consider how they show up in our design process, our production and supply chain, and the transport needed to get our products where they need to go. Yeah. We see you, CO2.

Help from the numbers people

We work with Climate Neutral to gather and calculate our emissions – in everything from our materials to the energy we use in producing, shipping and selling our products. They have the numbers covered, the rest is up to us.

Shrinking everything but our clothes.

With the help of Climate Neutral, we’re committed to a long-term reduction plan and looking for more ways to incorporate organic and recycled materials. As long as the earth spins, we’ll keep fighting for it.

We’re all about growth. Especially when it comes to trees.

We are always trying harder to leave no trace; to keep our hands out of the planet’s soup (or something). But until we can get products to you without emitting any carbon at all, we’ll keep planting trees. Ten trees – hundreds of leaves – for every product purchased. And Eden Reforestation Projects makes sure they start growing in the ecosystems that need it most. 

We Know Our Makers

Sure, we like to escape the crowds and talk to trees. But we care deeply about humans, too.

Our code of conduct ensures all the people in our supply chain are treated well, paid properly and have a safe spot to work. And we take time to chat face-to-face with our factories – when we can get the trees to hush that is. (Blabber mouths.)
