We take climate change extremely seriously and are constantly taking steps to reduce our environmental impact. We’re looking at everything we do to see if we can add more sustainable materials, reduce waste, or work more efficiently. Beginning in Fall and Winter 2020, we will use 100% biodegradable, compostable packaging and incorporate more recycled and organically grown materials in our products.

Our Materials

Our Packaging

Starting in our Fall/Winter 2020 collection, we will use packaging made from corn starch. Corn starch is a renewable resource and it's a more environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional plastics. This type of packaging creates less greenhouse gas emissions than that of conventional plastic production process (by about 25%). Now, that's a way to reduce global warming.

Our packaging supplier is certified by TUV Austria which guarantees that every component of the packaging is 100% biodegradable.

Important Note:

When you are finished using our packaging, you can simply fill it with food scraps and garden waste and place it in your home compost bin and watch it breakdown within 6 months. 


Final Words

Every one of our items is designed at our studio in Los Angeles. We work closely with only 2 factories in China, both carefully selected for their experience, artisanship, and attention to details. We only work with suppliers whose values are compatible with our own and we have built long-term relationships only with those that constantly deliver high-quality products made in a healthy and safe working environment (more information on our suppliers will be showcased in 2021).


As a brand that's currently operated by a small team of people, we are constantly looking for ways to better our environment and our community. If you have any recommendations, please send it over to sustainability@ytgclo.com. We want to learn from you!
