FAQs

ARE YOUR FEATURES SPONSORED?

SOME, BUT NOT ALL

We are open to ads and sponsorship but we will always prominently declare it if something on the website or our social media has been paid for or created in partnership with a brand. Also, regardless of sponsorship, YCC will always publish correct and verifiable information, as well as our independent opinion on products and brands. 

WHAT ARE AFFILIATE LINKS?

THESE ARE LINKS WE MAY EARN COMMISSION FROM

Affiliate links to e-commerce websites allow us to earn a small commission from every successful sale made via the said link. Our use of affiliate links is not paid for or sponsored by the companies whose products we link to and most importantly, consumers incur no additional cost whatsoever when using them.

IT IS A SERIES OF INDEPENDENT, LONG-FORM POSTS

All posts in this series are 100% independent - Your Conscious Cart does not and will not accept payment for any post in the Brand Breakdown series.
