Our ‘Unity Earth’ shirt is a celebration of unity against continued destruction. It’s a statement of hope and responsibility.

Climate change is real. We cannot look away. We must keep future generations front of mind. How might the world appear just decades or centuries down the road? Will our children know the richness of our swamps? Will our children’s children study the histories of our coastal cities, wondering what might’ve been had we taken better care? Already mutilated landscapes are still being destroyed by deliberate, greed-fueled choices.

We believe in unified action to build a future for sustainable life and natural enjoyment of our recreational landscapes. We want to see the end of environmental injustices and the creation of new systems that honor earth’s sovereignty. We believe that change is possible through unity and with an emphasis on life and love.

Our ‘Unity Earth’ design, printed with water-based ink on organic cotton/recycled plastic tees, is a celebration of unity against continued destruction. It’s a statement of hope and responsibility. We stand in solidarity with the youth who are leading the way by organizing to curb carbon emissions and fight climate breakdown. The words of Greta Thunberg, a sixteen year old Swedish activist, speak truth to power:

“What we do or don’t do right now, me and my generation can’t undo in the future. So when school started in August of this year, I decided that this was enough. I set myself down on the ground outside the Swedish parliament. I school striked for the climate. Some people say that I should be in school instead. Some people say that I should study to become a climate scientist so that I can ‘solve the climate crisis.’ But the climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions. All we have to do is to wake up and change. And why should I be studying for a future that soon will be no more when no one is doing anything whatsoever to save that future? And what is the point of learning facts in the school system when the most important facts given by the finest science of that same school system clearly means nothing to our politicians and our society.”

The time is now. We cannot look away. We must wake up. We have to change.
