Chako is a social, creative enterprise based in Zanzibar that creates quality, handcrafted products from upcycled waste material. Zanzibar’s tourism industry is booming, and with this comes the creation of tonnes of waste material, that usually would end up in a landfill. Chako is committed to upcycling these materials by creating unique and stylish products while saving the planet.
As the biggest importer and distributor of wines and spirits in Zanzibar, it is important to us to know that the glass bottles we import are collected and responsibly managed instead of adding to the major waste management issues facing Zanzibar today
Chako is also dedicated to employing, and empowering, uneducated and untrained young men and women from Zanzibar ensuring a commitment to the community as well as the environment. Chako has been empowering Zanzibar since 2010 and is the first guaranteed member of the World Fair Trade Organization in Zanzibar.
With our values so seamlessly aligned, it is clear to see why we have partnered with this incredible organisation.
