Are you an agent of change?
Do you want to be?
Well, Lonesome George Co. began with a tortoise from Galapagos island. Inspired by one of its last surviving Pinta tortoises Lonesome George, this line of clothing was born.
He helped in teaching us that all our actions cause reactions, extinction and overuse and mismanagement of our already scare resources can be monumentally earth-changing.
Just recently, they unveiled the Academy of Agents of Change. 10% of this Academy’s proceeds from every purchase goes to educating our children and youth. This is so that Lonesome George’s history isn’t repeated and that extinction in itself is lessened. Also to teach the next generation the importance of preserving our Earth by taking responsibility.
To me, this is absolutely commendable and it makes my heart happy to see that people are taking responsibility and are trying to make a change.
When Lonesome George and Co. sent me a shirt to review, I was stoked!
I try to purchase as much clothing that is fair-trade, organic and eco-conscious as I can. Lonesome George and Co. is all that and more!
As you see, pictured above is my amazing sister Susana, I want to make her an agent of change and that is why I gave her the shirt. I try to instill and inspire all my family to live a greener life, to see that everything they do–big, small, bad or good makes a significant impact in the world around us.
For testing purposes, I tried the gorgeous Reuse T-shirt that Lonesome George & Co. graciously sent me.
It is made out of 100% Peruvian Organic Cotton, it’s got a plunging V-neck and it’s a classic fit and sits below the hips. It has a light patch on the back with the “Recycle” symbol pressed on. It is super soft and deliciously comfortable, I think I may steal it from my sister once in awhile!
One thing I will say though, that because of the color it came in, I’d recommend wearing a tank top underneath to minimizes the translucency. To be honest, I love layering and do it anyway so this worked perfectly for both my sister and I.
Take a look at this gorgeous shirt!
