COLLECTORS ANONYMOUS - OUR VALUES
"We advocate for sustainability in all the work we do. We are a member of Tourism Industry Aotearoa and have signed up to their Tourism Sustainability Commitment. We only work with New Zealand based designers, photographers and printers to lessen the environmental impact and increase work that goes to local businesses".
"We believe in community and are developing a powerful independent network of businesses around Aotearoa New Zealand that support the circular economy and divert goods from landfill. We also work with a community of over 20,000 curious travellers who enjoy adventure and discovery around Aotearoa".
"We create carefully crafted products, designed with longevity in mind. In keeping with the UN’s sustainability goals of responsible consumption and production, we make sure the guides are beautiful, useful and something that people will want to keep and share, rather than use once and throw away".
We are committed to curiosity and exploring the more unusual, distinctive side of Aotearoa's retail landscape. We champion and promote boutique businesses that focus on vintage, secondhand, pre-loved and recycled goods.
"We encourage conscious consumerism, by connecting people with local businesses that are led by a reduce, reuse, recycle framework around the products that they offer".
