Yala Shares Environmental Practices and Celebrates with an Earth Day Sale!

Rejoice, relax and rejuvenate knowing that Yala believes in the extra effort to make sure our products are sourced, produced and shipped environmentally and ethically. Learn more about what we do to ensure you are getting the best...

Electric Truck
Driving an electric truck is a conversation starter. People are curious and want to know more about it. We can share that it saves us 300 gallons of gas a year – carbon free and neighborhood friendly.

Green Shipping
How to ship in a responsible way: Shipping generates over 10% of the world’s green house gas emissions. Yala® is proud to partner with GreenShipping to make our shipments carbon neutral. GreenShipping's service allows businesses and individuals to ship in a carbon neutral manner by providing an accurate method to measure and offset the carbon footprint of their UPS, FedEx, USPS, and freight shipments. Yala offsets all inbound and outbound shipments.

Organic Trade Association and Green America
Green America and Organic Trade Association are two strong organizations that provide leadership and education with a vision to grow communities that are healthy and safe for generations to come. We are proud to be a member of both.

Oeko-Tex Certified
Our BambooDreams clothing and bedding is Oeko-Tex certified. This certification screens for harmful substances present in textiles. It guarantees the safety of our fabric and dyes and is an additional assurance that we are using environmentally friendly production methods.

Our fabric is dyed using only low impact, Azo-free dyes. We have seen how the dyed water is cleaned by micro-organisms and, after testing for purity, it is reused by the factory.

Certified Green Business
As a certified Green Business we continue to conserve resources, limit our waste as well as provide education for employees and the public.

Solar Pioneers
Recycling, reusing and capturing the energy of the sun. As members of Solar Pioneers, a program to increase solar generated electricity city wide, we are using the sun to meet a portion of our energy needs.

If you are in Ashland this weekend, be sure to swing by Science Works for and visit over 70 Exhibits to learn about energy conservation, solid waste reduction, local food and farms, green products and building materials, renewable electricity sources, transportation alternatives, and enjoy live entertainment & activities throughout the day.

We hope you have a wonderful Earth Day!

Until next time,

Lauren of Team Yala
