Our last giveaway winner won the "All Love is Equal" tee promoting the rights of all people, gay or straight.
Revenge Is... is a line of apparel with a statement. This line of eco-friendly clothing and accessories uses the power of words to raise awareness for causes such as gay rights, saving the earth, and promoting peace. In fact, the slogan of Revenge Is... is "Making Activism Fashionable."
While the company--and many of us--are frustrated with so many of the world's major problems, getting involved and making a statement are ways to address the issues at hand. The company hopes to inspire others to get involved to help better the world, one small step at a time.
Revenge Is... is dedicated to charitable causes and donates at least 10% of their profits to worthy causes. Between October 2008 and December 2009, the company had donated over $20,000 to charitable causes. One of their main areas of involvement is actually to raise awareness for a huge problem that isn't talked about nearly enough--the fact that so many people have an iodine deficiency.
More than 2 billion people across the globe have an iodine deficiency. Common side effects are an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), goiter, and pregnancy complications. When pregnant and nursing women do not get enough iodine, they may be more likey to miscarry or suffer preterm labor, as well as have babies with lower IQ scores. It is said that not getting enough iodine and passing this on to your growing baby is the leading preventable causes of mental retardation (source: American Thyroid Association).
Other charitable causes Revenge Is... is involved with include free medical clinics, animal welfare charities, youth mentoring programs, Code Pink (women for peace), and so much more.
In addition to supporting a variety of wonderful causes, Revenge Is... is a very eco-conscious company. I'm happy to say they are both chic and green. Many shirts are made from certified 100% organic cotton without the use of harmful chemicals or pesticides. Others are made from organic cotton and RPET--in other words, recycled plastic bottles. These are super soft and silky in texture and extremely comfortable!
There is a trend these days to say what's on your mind. If you believe in a cause--well, go ahead and say so. So many people are so afraid to say what they feel or what they believe in and Revenge Is... encourages you to do just that!
Full Disclosure: Whenever I am sent something by a company to test out or am sent something by a PR company, I always disclose the information. I did not pay for the All Love is Equal shirt. I have not, however, been paid to review or talk about Revenge Is... products. As always, I discuss and review products--even ones I did not pay for--with my brutally honest opinion, as seen in previous posts.
