MY friends at A Lot To Say and sponsors of my efforts in past has just opened a store in LA’s hippest fashion enclaves. Yup!! A Lot To Say, Inc. (www.alottosay.com) opened its flagship retail store at Fred Segal, Santa Monica.
As they describe:
The high-tech, socio-eco vibe of this brand not only gives green some serious glamour, it gives fashion some serious smarts.
Using powerful messaging that inspires with indelible impact, this wearable art educates and motivates in all subjects that shape our lives: from the health of our planet to the key to our physical & emotional well-being to the power of love.
Named “The Most Environmentally Progressive Line Of Message Apparel & Lifestyle Products On The Market In The US Today,” the technology is nothing short of revolutionary. Every product is made from RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES turned into fabrics that range from silky and soft to shimmery and sustainable. And if that’s not green enough, every product also utilizes a NO WATER DYE PROCESS, which means no fresh water is used in the dyeing. When you buy just one A Lot To Say tee, you are saving over 60 bottles from going to landfill and over 700 gallons of fresh water in the making.
Minimalist yet sexy, the range of products is also unprecedented. Tees, tanks, totes, scarves, umbrellas, iPad cases, blankets, pajamas, bikinis, shorts, yoga gear, pet leashes, note cards, canvas art (and much more) make it hard to believe that such a collection of beautiful things can come from plastic bottles.
A Lot To Say also gives back like it’s going out of style. 10%-20% of all gross sales support remarkable charities like The International Green Energy Council, SU2C and ARF.
In the words of their manifesto, co-founders Alison Stanich Power and Jennifer Stanich Banmiller believe that only through expression can we create awareness. And only through awareness can we create change.
So stop by. Revolution is not only in the air, it’s in every single product this company creates.
