According to the company's website, Yellow Leaf Hammocks has 4 main objectives: create a sustainable micro-economy, prevent environmental degradation, enhance quality of life and support culture preservation and autonomy. The hammocks are made from Thai hill tribes who have been left few alternatives to provide for their family. Popular amongst the options is to be hired to clear cut forest land and farm that land using toxic agricultural chemicals.

Hammock weaving provides roughly 651% increase in income over toxic farming and for every weaver hired, five people are removed from deforestation and toxic farming.

Yellow Leaf Hammocks provides quality, comfortable and beautiful hammocks, and donates the proceeds towards the weavers who can then afford education and preserve their culture.
