December 2022 Sustainability Report

Welcome to 2023! Hopefully you and your friends and family are enjoying the new year! I can promise that team DGY is pumped! We’re working hard to make sure orders are shipped out and that we’re keeping up to date with the latest crafting crazes!

Thanks to our amazing community members just like you, we have been able to save 11,001 pounds of textiles, fiber, paper, plastic, and wood from going into landfills all around the world. To put the amount in perspective for you, here are some examples that weight that much:

  • 12 fully grown horses 
  • 550 office chairs 
  • 30 reindeer - more than Santa has!
  • 4 and a half crocodiles!
  • 110 toilets 

Totals for 2022

  • No. of trees planted: 7,617
  • Pounds of waste material saved: 124,092

Trees.Org x Darn Good Yarn

Every purchase from our Be Darn Good Collection, gives back to the global community. For each purchase from this collection, a tree is planted by our friends over at! For 2022 we hope to plant 30,000 trees this year all around the world to help our global siblings. With each tree planted there is hope for the future -more food, more farms, more wildlife, and more jobs!

Thanks to our community, last month we were able to plant 451 trees!! One step closer to our 2022 goal!

December’s Most Popular Yarn

Here at DGY, we love being natural and it seems that our yarnies do too! The most popular yarn for this month was our DK Weight Naturally Dyed Recycled Silk Yarn in Rose!

Lookin’ Good & Doin’ Good!

We’ve got the best dressed community on the block! The most popular clothing item for December was The Karabi Lounge and Layering Robe!

This silky floral robe is the perfect choice when you want to look your best without sacrificing comfort! These robes have saved 70 pounds of fiber from the landfills and there are still a few left if you want to grab one before they’re gone!
