When I was around 18 a friend of mine had a windbreaker
that was made out of recycled Paper and I thought that was
the coolest thing. Now when you looked at it you thought,
wow, that looks like it is made out of used paper but to
feel it I was shocked it felt like Cloth and it also worked
to keep out the elements. I didn't know much about recycling
then for it was just gearing up for its big deal status but the
fact they could take something old and make something new
out of it fascinated me even then, The part I thought was the
coolest was the fact that since it was already a wrinkled
mess and since it was made of Paper and therefor super
light weight, when you were not using it you could just bundle
it up into a little ball and toss it in your pocket. No carrying
coats over your shoulder or finding a place to set it down.
Perfect for Amusement parks and other Day adventures
and just kinda neat to me. Like I said though, there was one
big draw back and that was it looked like old paper. If you
are a fashion Diva like me you just don't get past that so
I was forced to do a pro- con list and Cool was a good
start but appearance made it a bust in the end for me.
even fathom what a shirt made out of plastic would be
other then a Prop for Madonna. Revenge Is gave me a chance
to review one of their shirts for children and I must say
technology has came a long way and if the people who made
the paper windbreakers could see this shirt they would bow
their heads in shame. This does not look like any plastic I have
ever seen, why by golly it looks like a shirt. And a cute one at
that. Revenge Is shirts are made with 100% Organic Cotton or
a Blend of Plastic Bottles and Organic Cotton. I love this!
Talk about a great way to clear out some landfills! Even
thier shipping package is made out of recylced items and
they offer you a chance to recycle it yet again. The people at
Revenge Is don't only talk the talk, they walk the walk. In recycled
shoes I am sure!
kids shirts that anyone should be proud to wear. Next time you
drink a Coca Cola I could be wearing it later! Now ain't that
about a blip! Their T-shirts are totally stylish and they have
hoodies to boot! You can even pick up a tote or a refillable
Coffee Mug. All bases covered, full steam ahead. The Top of
their web site says Making Activism Fashionable and I have to
agree. Everything about their designs screams fashion right down
to their Kids Unity and Think Green Shirts. Both the mens
and the womens items I would have to call Urban Hip for they are
cool! It is one of the few shirts I have seen that I might have
to fight my son for because they have a style that seems to
fit everyone! They are great company to shop from for other
reasons too for they truly care about the Planet and go to
great pains to practice what they preach. Every thing they
do follows the path of green and they belong to various
charitable organazations that follow the same path. Whether
you are a whole hearted invirmentalist or just try to do what you
can when you can Renveng Is will make your journey a little more
fashionable and a little more Politically correct. I like nothing
more then looking good and if I can save the planet while doiing
it, well, that is a no-brainer! I tip my Recycled hat to Revenge Is!
