ACTIVISM & PROTEST T-SHIRTS WITH EMILY VS BEAR


Are you actively doing your part to help the planet?

Just last week I saw a video with a thin-as-a-rake polar bear rummaging through a trash bin for food. Desperate to survive.

It breaks my heart. It makes me want to do something.
But what can I do? What can we do?

It’s counterproductive to become upset, depressed, and to then go on to do nothing; assuming we’re doomed anyway.

We need to do our part as consumers, but we need green businesses with great products that have a low-impact on the environment.

The more low-impact products are made, the easier it is for us to vote with our wallet.

We, the consumers, are powerful. Every exchange of money counts. Every time you refuse a plastic straw counts. Each time you bring your own mason jar to the coffeeshop counts.

In this episode I interview Emily Bell who turned her website into somewhat of an activist website one year ago. Her business, Emily vs. Bear, sells ‘protest t-shirts’.

The shirts all have a controversial yet beautiful image of something that needs to improve for the sake of our planet. From trash to food to saving the trees to water, and more.

Emily’s Advice:

  • Stop using single-use plastic.
  • Change your bank if you’re with the big bank.
  • Reconsider your values and what you stand for, and really stand for them.
  • Get ready to work really hard and don’t quit your day job yet.

The Takeaways:

As a consumer, you really do hold the power. So you shouldn’t get caught up in the consumerism that is drilled into our brains for years.

We need to take a step back. It’s good to be able to discern on the things that we really need and not jump on those fast fashion pieces from malls.

It is important to get to know the companies you’re buying from and really take a stand. If their methods are against your values, be firm in your decision to not buy from them.
