The why

Pretty much the same reasons as last year

We like to offer fair products for a fair price, all year round. So in general, we don't do sales. And we certainly don’t want to encourage the feeding frenzy this time of the year. People spending money they don't have on things they don't need or even want... this is not our way.

I realize this sounds a bit strange, and it is somewhat contradictory. Because we're a shop. We sell stuff.
Of course I want you to buy it. The more, the better.
Well, yeeessss… but. A big but. 

Yarnz is also about balance, about reducing our footprint as much as possible, about treading lightly and kindly, about spending your money wisely and ethically, and about being part of a community that values quality over quantity. 

About buying less, choosing well, and making it last.

Still, it is nice to celebrate a special occasion.
So this is our compromise, inspired by other (small) business owners and out-of-the-box thinkers, we celebrate with a Black Friday alternative.

From Friday Nov 29 until Monday Dec 2 (midnight)

The charities

One for people and one for the planet

For people: ASHWA Uganda. 

Empowering a community often starts with empowering women.

ASHWA supports the most vulnerable girls and women in Uganda, where menstrual hygiene and sex education are very much taboo.
Sanitary towels are unavailable or unaffordable. Consequence is that girls regularly miss school and finally drop out of school and become isolated. 

ASHWA teaches about menstrual hygiene and how to make their own reusable sanitary pads.

I know the founder, Eric Omondi, personally. I am absolutely convinced that they are making the difference in many Ugandese communities and have been a proud supporter of them for years.

These guys are absolute rockstars when it comes to empowering (young) women.
The world needs many, many more courageous men and women like them.

Half of our Green Friday donation will go to ASHWA Uganda.
For the planet: Trees for All. 

Every year ten billion trees are lost. With disastrous consequences for people, animals and climate. 

Trees for All plant trees, protect and restore existing forest and raise awareness about the need for trees. Both here in Holland where I live and also further away, through sustainable forestry projects in developing countries.

Half of our Green Friday donation will go to Trees for All.

Buy Fair

I wrote this short blog post about a year ago, it is still very apt.

Think about the pricetag of the product you're about to buy. When it's cheap, the real cost is usually paid by someone or something else.
When you buy sustainable and ethical products instead, you know that there is no hidden suffering behind the glitter of your new product. You know the people have been treated fairly and the environmental impact has been kept to a minimum.
Our prices are fair. For ourselves, our producers and our customers. Our products are worth the money. (We know we ain't cheap... We do quality, we don't do cheap.)

No flash sales, no fear of missing out, no deception when you pay the normal price. This is fair and square all round.
Nobody likes to miss out on something, or to be taken advantage of. And you won't. It's not necessary to search the internet for Yarnz coupon codes, or to subscribe to our newsletter just to not miss out on a deal. It's not necessary to develop any buying strategy.

You order what you want, when you want it.
