Running an environmentally friendly shop is very important to me. While screen printing is a very important part of my life, it can be a harmful practice if proper measures aren't taken. That's why we use a variety of eco-friendly practices in my shop and have goals set in place to transition to an even more eco-conscious company. Here are the many ways we assure that Yat Cat Print Co. remains environmentally friendly.

- We partner with Bella & Canvas, who runs an eco-friendly shop of their own by practicing water reduction, energy reduction and striving for a zero-waste facility

- We only use water-based, Phthalate and PVC free inks, which are harder to work with but are much better for the environment that commonly used plastisol inks

- Our water filtration system catches any harmful particles and assures only water is washed down the drain 

- We use water-based chemicals for reclaiming screens

- We upcycle and recycle wherever we can, including using cardboard boxes as art print backings, misprinted tees as rags or for testing and paper scraps as ink cards 

- We use compostable or recycled materials for packaging and shipping

- We use compostable washi tape to tape our screens

While we know this is just an introduction to being truly eco-friendly, we strive for improvement and welcome any suggestions you may have, so please email yatcatnola@yahoo.com with your tips!
