The Story


Welcome to our store! We're Matt & Courtenay. Originally from the small town of Dannevirke, and now settled in beautiful Christchurch.

The Zephyr Co is the love child of our combined passions in sustainability, art, design, photograhy & zero-waste living.
Together, we hand make stainless steel straws, reusable produce bags, quality kitchen woodware, source & refurbish vintage household tools that were built to last a lifetime.
We believe in designing tools to be used for the entire lifetime that material. Our Stainless Steel Straws are made with high quality steel that they will last long enough for you to hand them down to your grandchildren, while reusable produce bags will last anywhere from 5-10 years, they have been mindfully produced with locally sourced byproduct fabric. This means that by purchasing our bags, not only are you saving single use plastic bags every single time you use them, you have also helped rescue perfect fabrics from going to landfill! Our purposeful wooden kitchenware is all made using locally reclaimed timbers from post earthquake housing. Each piece is unique and handmade
Being consious of our impact on the earth, we have also designed our packaging with recycled paper, had it printed locally, and is 100% compostable.
Whether you are purchasing a single pack of reusable straws, or a bulk order for an entire school fundraiser, you can be sure that the utmost care has been taken to produce a quailty, beautiful product, with the very least impact possible on our environment
