EVEN SMALL CHANGES CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
At Yellow Box, we aim to reduce our ecological footprint by making earth-conscious choices when it comes to packaging and design.
We’re committed to working towards a more sustainable future.
While we aim to create shoes that are both fashionable and high quality, we also prioritize eco-friendly practices to help reduce our impact on the planet.
Plastic poly bags are not only difficult to recycle, but they are also toxic to the environment. Since 2013 we’ve eliminated the use of plastic poly bags in our shoebox packaging.
Our shoeboxes are made of 100% recycled paper. We’ve updated our shoebox design in 2018 to be constructed completely without glue, making our boxes both sustainable and toxic-free.
We’ve increased the use of 100% natural fibers in our shoe linings across all our collections, thereby reducing our use of synthetic alternatives. (This includes 100% cotton canvases, cotton twills, linens, and more!)
We are now using recycled PET threads in all of our new sport-knit designs. rPET is polyester thread spun from recycled materials like plastic bottles.
We’ve partnered with certified weaving factories to create 100% post-consumer recycled polyester. These factories have been tested and certified by the IDFL (International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory). Our sport knit materials are certified to adhere to the GRS (Global Recycle Standard) and RCS (Recycled Claim Standard).
STEPS TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
We’re always open to change and further development. Our designers are looking to reduce the use of virgin materials
at every level of our shoe components. We will continue to incorporate innovative and eco-friendly methods throughout our designs and integrate conscious practices for a better tomorrow.
