Our Mission

Your Day Just Started is the idea that we can start our journey at any time. We all have ups and downs throughout our individual journey, however we persevere and grow. YDJS is a home & human brand that wants to help change your everyday life for the better by creating quality products that help create positive environments for people to grow and live in. Growing means change, and change is hard and uncomfortable, we want to help create comfort in the uncomfortable.

Donating to Mental Health Awareness

We love the idea of helping someone express themselves through our handmade products. Everytime someone loves the aesthetic, quality, scent or color palette. It reminds us that we are creating products of importance. We took this concept and ran with it. We thought that to truly be a Home & Human brand, we would have to not only supply a product that relates to our customers interests, have soothing calming tones and colors, but also impact lives.
