Clothing that Speaks – Homebase Organics

No secret here – clothes are important to me both on & off the skateboard.  What I love about skateboarding is there is no uniform – so really it’s ok to skate in leggings or a skirt or whatever you look/feel good in.

Along my blogging journey I’ve made friends who also have a love for fashion.  One I did a post on was Jacky Wasserman – founder/designer of Beet X Beetpost 8/26/15.

What intrigued me about Jacky is that she uses fashion to communicate her passion.  She’s a passionate vegan who let’s people know how she feels/thinks through her clothing line.

And now thru her I’ve been introduced to Home Base Organics.

Home Base Organics is passionate about protecting endangered animals and giving individuals a way to do something about the extinction crisis. Our shirts are meant to spark conversation and spread awareness for these animals and the earth.

With a cause I can support – it was time to look at their clothes.

I like the designs plus there’s options – colors – tee, tanks, etc.  When I spoke to Kirsten – the founder I found out that:

  • A Voice for the Animals: Each design is linked to a nonprofit organization that fights for the animals – WildAid, Cowspiracy, and The Xerces Society.
  • Eco-friendly: We use organic hemp and bamboo because our environmental impact is just as important to us as our cause. Our shirts work with the Earth, not against it.
  • Beautiful Designs: The intricacy of our hand-drawn designs is meant to reflect the complexity of these creatures.
  • 100% Cruelty-Free: Everything we do is 100% plant-based and rooted in love for all species and the planet we call home.

I believe that every individual is powerful enough to share their passions and that by communicating truth, positive action happens, and the world becomes better.  Can a tee shirt really make a difference?  Can a blog by a teenage fashionista skater girl really get more people skateboarding?

All things become possible when you’re aware.  Hope you check them out & I also hope that what you wear both on & off the board is what really represents you.
