Great Vegan Athletes online store opens
Great Vegan Athletes is pleased to open the virtual doors to two new online stores. The stories sell our T-shirts, training tops, hoodies, vests and more.
Plans have been in the pipeline for a while, and the stores cover Europe and North America meeting the high ethical and environmental standards we’ve been looking for.
European supplier Teemill and Design for Humans, who supply North America, both avoid sweatshops and a range of damaging environmental practices often found in the textile industry. Design by Humans issued a statement:
“Every garment that we craft is printed in California using environmentally friendly phthalate-free, water-based inks. Design by Humans only uses t-shirt blanks that are guaranteed to be sweatshop and child labor free.”
Teemill, who use renewable energy at all stages, have provided a video on their practices.
In both stores you can shop for hoodies, training vests, sweatshirts and more.
As well as raising funds to help us keep the site going, we hope the clothing will raise awareness of the site and the amazing achievements of vegan athletes around the world.
