LWLF x SHIRT ACTIVISM COLLAB

Guests at the Vegan Social Pop-Up Event had the opportunity preview the Love Wild Live Free Apparel Collection, a partnership with Shirt Activism, an awareness clothing company and everyday activism that's incredibly effective at starting great conversations and planting seeds. All of the pieces feature sustainable material (including organic options), made with 100% no-sweatshop manufacturing in the USA and printed using water-based, eco-friendly ink.

Most importantly, $1 from every sale of the collection this upcoming season will be donated to Animal Justice, Canada's only animal law advocacy organization that works to pass animal protection legislation, push for the prosecution of animal abusers, and fight for animals in court. The work that Animal Justice does speaks to me on both a personal and professional level, as a lawyer and passionate animal rights activist. I could not be more thrilled to be supporting the fight for animal protection!

I am so excited to announce that the winner of the The Crop Top - a super cute crop T from the Love Wild Live Free Apparel Collection is Charny B.! Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway.
