Veggie T's is a pocket T-shirt company that is trying to demonstrate the importance of a healthier lifestyle and a healthier world. The pocket T-shirts are made from 100% recycled cotton or polyester. We hope to prevent our home from being polluted by our unused textiles. Each shirt is complimented with a fruit or vegetable themed fabric breast pocket. Our Veggie T's are made in America.
The health of Earth and its people are constantly getting worse. Each year approximetly 14.3 milion tons of textiles pollute our earth. Nearly 15%-20% of our waste that destroys our earth is from clothing and textile based objects. This information is based off of The United States Environmental Protection Agency. Onto our health, the worldwide obesity rate has doubled since 1980. According to the World Health Organization "In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 600 million were obese. 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2014, and 13% were obese. Most of the world's population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight. 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2013." Clearly we have a problem with staying healthy. Dr. Athena Staik from The Neuroscience & Relationships website says, "Here's some “truth with a capital T”: Thoughts spark emotion-driven action. Your thoughts create inner standards or rules that spark neurochemical dynamic processes, which selectively govern your choices and actions with precision." By implimenting the fruit and vegetable visual it is subconsciously being planted in peoples minds when they see our shirts. It also can cause for a topic in a conversation if people notice how it is different, unique, and stylish. When people see this they may be influenced to later replace an unhealthy meal with a healthy one. Not only is it a visual motivation but it can cause for an influence of a friend to help you along a healthier path. If a conversation does arise around the style of the pocket then the shirt can also be mentioned and more awareness will spread.
Our hope in creating Veggie T's is that people will understand that we have been given a great place to call our home and we need to take care of it. We have also been given these amazing bodies to learn, grow, and acomplish many great things with, so lets take care of them. Living a healthy life allows you to truley achieve anything you want, don't hold yourself back. It is never too late to live a better lifestyle and it is never too late to try and make a change it the world as well. Please consider being apart of this change and influence for a better world and a better you.
