Yamerra for Eco-friendly Lifestyle

As an Eco-friendly natural skincare and hair care line, Yamerra supports all efforts to reduce our carbon footprint on earth through recycling and reducing waste build-up.  For this reason, Yamerra is an avid fan of the new program Re-fashion NYC. 

This program was initially designed to offer New Yorkers fast, free, and convenient services for those who want to donate used or unwanted clothing as well as toys, shoes, furniture. All of the proceeds from the donations go to charitable causes.   If you are interested in donating, all you have to do is look for the Re-fashion NYC boxes which will be located in several apartment buildings throughout the five boroughs.

As Re-fashion NYC gains notoriety, these boxes will be available in public and private locations throughout the City.  If your landlord has yet to place the collection box below in your apartment building you can still donate by visiting nyc.gov/stuffexchange to find alternative places to donate your items.  Please visit nyc.gov/refashion to learn more about the program and the partnership. This is a easy way to jump start your spring cleaning and free some space in your tiny NYC closet!

Yamerra also has a recycling program which allows for those who have used Yamerra containers to return the containers to any Yamerra retailer and receive 10% off your next purchase.
Please look out for the Re-fashion NYC boxes throughout the city and join the effort in making New York City a greener city!



  1. As far as the recycling goes with the product containers, do your retail venders know? If they do not what should I say going into the store to bring up the 10%? I really wouldn't wanna be a bother but hey if you can get the containers back and can re use them I would love for you to be able to. Also hey everyone loves a little discount right? Have a lovely firday
