Eco fashion by the people for the people sums up what S2S Nation is all about as they put a New Twist on Eco-Friendly Apparel and Social Responsibilities. We decided to team up with S2S Nation to do a giveaway and create more awareness of their business model. We’re giving away two tees, one for the men and one for the women.
Whenever you pick up a fashion magazine or read a blog, more and more companies are using eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, bamboo and hemp to create their clothing or accessories’ line. Even in these rough economic times, designers are still sourcing new materials to produce eco-friendly apparel and accessories, such as industrial waste for TV screens mixed with recycled tires and cork. Increasingly people are beginning to realize that sustainable eco-friendly products and social responsibility is not just a fad, but a change in the way of our thinking and our life habits. People are starting to consume less and realize the importance of sustaining our environment, which has transcended into the world of fashion and apparel.
At S2S Nation (www.s2snation.com) their goal is to create a socially responsible company that gives back to those less fortunate while creating high quality limited edition bamboo/organic cotton tees for fashion and eco-conscious individuals. The t-shirt designs are created by the users and submitted online to S2S Nation. The designs are voted on by the users and the top 5 designs for men and women are made in limited edition runs of 500. The designer wins a 500 USD cash prize and gets 5% of every shirt that is sold.
Social responsibility is also the heart of the operations of S2Snation. When a customer purchases a shirt 5% of every purchase goes to charity. The consumer can choose between 6 different charities based on the acronym NATION.
N- Nature and Environment (Coral Reef Conservation Fund)
A – Artists and academics (International Child Art Foundation)
T- Town and Community (Sports Gift)
I – Imagination and Happiness – (Canines for Disabled Kids)
O – Orphanages and Children – (Safe Haven Orphanage)
N- Nurture and Health – (Leukemia – Ana Lucia)
