Thorn Clothing's Clean Water Now Campaign

Thorn Clothing's Clean Water Now Campaign

More and more clothing lines are becoming socially conscious... from mall brands such as Gap with their (RED) line to eco-friendly shirts from Alternative Apparel to Stella McCartney's swanky pro-animal-rights apparel and accessories. It's great to know a piece of clothing is more than just a swab of material sewn together in some sub-par factory, but what is even greater is when you find a company that is truly heart-felt about this aspect, and not just doing it because it is the trendy or PC thing to do. Thorn Clothing is one such company. I'm not saying the fore-mentioned co's do not have good intentions, I can just vouch personally about Thorn....

Thorn was one of the first brands my husband, Bobby, and I stocked at Typecast, the clothing boutique we once owned. Prior to approaching Thorn to become one of our vendors, we would see the Thorn booth and owner Jake Sherley and his family (at the time his son was a little tyke rocking a sweet mohawk :-) at various music festivals including Spirit West Coast in Del Mar California and the Rage Music Fest held in Phoenix, AZ. One of our favorite bands, Ever Stays Red, also sported Thorn among a slew of other Christian alternative rock bands.

Thorn's web site states, "We provide clothing to our local homeless shelter and we are providing the basic essential of water to thousands of people in Africa. Your purchase helps us do that. FOR EVERY ITEM WE SELL, WE PROVIDE A PERSON CLEAN WATER FOR A YEAR." Jake is currently working alongside with another great organization, Seeds of Hope, with his Clean Water Now campaign which helps build BioSand water filters for villages in Zambia, Africa. Jake adds, "We are raising funding on the simple basis of for every item sold, we provide 1 person clean water for 1 year. It’s simple to grasp and easy to help. All someone has to do is buy a garment and they become a part of a big part of the solution." For a full interview with Jake check out Surfbakersfieldmag.com.

For mamas in the midst of back-to-school shopping for your teens, or needing an edgy shirt design for yourself or your hub, shop Thorn Clothing's web site. Shirts range from $5 to $15.






Also, you can help out by just being a fan of Thorn Clothing on Facebook---for every new fan that "Likes" the page between now and Sept 1st, Thorn will pledge 1 month of clean water for 1 person in Africa! So simple.
