In this week’s post, I’m pleased to announce a partnership between Tariro and Livity Outernational, an eco-clothing company founded in 2001 in Topanga, California. Livity’s Wellness Co-ordinator, Melissa Collins, helped organize a benefit event for Tariro in Santa Cruz late fall. After the event, Melissa offered to support Tariro through a generous donation of Livity’s “Art as Activism” t-shirts and sling-ting bags.
Thanks to this donation, Tariro is now offering a “Give One, Get One” deal on Livity wear! For every Livity “Art as Activism” t-shirt purchased through Tariro, we are able to purchase a white blouse to give to a student in Zimbabwe, to complete her school uniform.
I’ve personally fallen in love with Livity’s comfortable, hemp/cotton blend t-shirts, which express my personal philosophy that activism is most effective when it comes from our creative selves!
To personalize Livity’s sling-ting bags, we’ve added embroidered panels sewn by our students. For every sling-ting bag purchased, Livity will donate a similar bag to a girl in Zimbabwe, to carry her books and school supplies.
Sling ting bags come in three colors: turquoise, sage, and heather. T-shirts are available in men’s and women’s cuts, with cream, sage, black, and light-grey men’s colors, and black and light-grey for women. Both the t-shirts and sling-ting bags are $30 each.
Please order a t-shirt and bag, and support Tariro’s work in Zimbabwe while feeling and looking good! To order, just send us a check at our mailing address:
Tariro: Hope and Health for Zimbabwe’s Orphans
PO Box 50273
Eugene, OR, 97405
Let us know the quantity, type, and size of t-shirt you’d like, in addition to the color. For bags, simply let us know your preferred color. Add an extra $4 per item for shipping and handling, and we’ll send you back a wonderful, one-of-a-kind item that is eco-conscious and supports change through women’s education!
Tariro would also like to give special thanks to Eugene’s own Sweet Skins eco-boutique for helping us figure out how to get out panels onto Livity’s great bags.
