“Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents.
It was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
-Ancient Indian proverb 




Zee Bee Market cares about how our products are made. We also care deeply about the way our daily lives impact our environment and the planet we all call home. To that end, we are committed to environmental stewardship both, in the products we sell and in how we operate our business. Our pledge is to support the people and the environment in a positive way.  Find inspiration in this blog.

"Cultivate Environmental Stewardship" is one of the Fair Trade Federation's nine governing principles. Artisans understand the need to offer current generations the ability to meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Supplier members actively consider the implications of their decisions on the environment and promote the responsible stewardship of resources. Producers actively reduce, reuse, reclaim, and recycle materials wherever possible. They encourage environmentally sustainable practices throughout the entire trading chain.




We are committed to environmental stewardship and to bring you products that are sustainably produced. Many of our Fair Trade gifts are created using repurposed, recycled materials and we continue to look for suppliers that offer a wide variety of Eco-friendly products for the entire family.



If you have any suggestions of gifts and products that meet Green America standards that you feel we should carry, please send us an email at

In addition to offering sustainably produced gifts, we also work hard to be an environmentally conscious business. We reuse shipping boxes every time we can and hand out paper shopping bags made of recycled materials.



As we continue to grow, we plan to use product tags made of and printed in environmentally friendly ways.
