Each generation changes the world in a different way. Not only as a nation but the entire world is in need of a greener way to live. Be it manufacturing, growing sustainable products, cleaner fuel or less pollution, this is a concept that is being embraced far and wide. We are seeing innovative ways across each industry to create a greener world.
I had the pleasure of meeting with the group behind Holstee yesterday. They take their passion for changing the world and giving back by creating clothes with a conscious. They are working on growing an ecommerce business, merchandise driven made with fabrics that are recycled. For instance, the fabrics in their t-shirts are made from recycled plastic bottles. They are also working with another fabric that is made with plastic bags that are filling up our world. Last and certainly not least, they put their money where their mouth is. 10% of their proceeds go to KIVA which is an organization that micro-lends to entrepreneurs in developing worlds.
Of course, like all young hip websites these days, you can also listen to their favorite tunes of the day. There is a social media piece to create a community for other people who are interested in their concept and products.
I really liked their energy, their drive and their desire to change the world one t-shirt at a time.
