Our collaboration was formed by an international partnership of like-minded individuals, working remotely, across several continents. Everyone involved is from a wide range of different cultures and beliefs, all united behind the idea of green consumer electronics. While our base of operations is in Oakland, California, we have consultants and mentors from around the world. We put into action the idea, "Think Globally, Act Locally." The greatest thing about working at YzOak is that we are earnestly working to make a positive impact. As a BCorp in the making, it's in our DNA to put the value of benefiting social and environmental causes above pure profit considerations. We believe, in the end, it pays to give!

This was done in the spirit of the sharing economy, concurrently with our own web development. We plan to continue our public benefit projects both locally and beyond borders, while creating an electronics brand consumers can believe in, made from responsibly sourced, environmentally friendly, materials and processes.
