Wes alum Jon Kraus ’04 writes in to tell us about a new T-Shirt startup he’s developed called BleedingHeartsClub.com:
Our aim is to comment on any issues out there that are timely and in need of a different outlook. Whether it’s cute, clever, acerbic, controversial; whatever it takes to get the message across. What message? We merely begin a dialogue—the interpretation is up to you.
Our shirts are exclusively organic cotton, manufactured under fair labor, and dyed with water-based, PVC-free inks. For every shirt purchased, we donate 10% of profits to our various causes. In addition, 25 cents of the shipping and handling fee for each order is used to offset the carbon emissions for shipping.
