Environmental Concerns

Does Y Gear think Green?

Yes. Whenever we make a decision we always consider the impact it will have on the environment. We are all for reducing waste and taking care of our environment.

Here are some of our initiatives:

• Old boxes are either re-used or recycled

• Orders requiring boxes are usually shipped in used boxes to increase the use of the box before it gets recycled.

• Product packaging for shipping is kept to a minimum and is usually paper or cardboard over plastic alternatives.

• We don't buy foam beads or packaged air but will happily re-use these where possible.

• We partner with TRA to ensure that our staff a the ability to recycle their uniform. This means that all old garments are shredded back into yarn to be made into other products.
