What Makes a Brand Sustainable? Green Certifications
Many brands know the words you want to hear, and aren’t afraid to say them. But how can you tell the ones who mean it from those who only ‘green’ it?
Sustainability is YALA's mission

How do you know if a Brand is Sustainable?
But how do we measure these intentions? How do we verify them in a way you can trust? The answer is third-party certification. Impartial, credible agencies review YALA's practices on a regular basis. Their detailed assessments assure you and help us grow!
