G Wear, a Texas-based company, has dedicated four pieces in their latest “Green for a Cause” line to support non-profit work, including the Human Rights Campaign. Proceeds from their State Equality and Love t-shirts will benefit the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization.
The “G” stands for “green” and represents G Wear’s commitment to the recycling of materials in order to help you “Live Green and Look Great.” Focused on living green and looking great, G Wear creates fun, fashionable and 100 percent unique recycled apparel and accessories. The Company collects unused t-shirts from local, regional and national organizations and businesses and recycles them into appliqués that are cut, glued and hand sewn onto each of its products.
G Wear keeps thousands of yards of fabric out of landfills each year. All of G Wear's products are hand-assembled in the U.S., even down to its hang tags which are printed on recycled paper and attached with recycled string.
Kevin Jones, G Wear President and HRC Major Donor, said in a statement, “We are honored to partner with the Human Rights Campaign on this new collection. As a diverse and eco-friendly company, G Wear believes in working with and supporting causes and organizations that strengthen the world around us. The products in the Human Rights Campaign Collection from G Wear are a wonderful way to ‘live green’ and support Equality.”
HRC has a long history working with fashion industry leaders including Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, Perry Ellis, Calvin Klein, Kate Spade, Levi’s and Nike promoting LGBT equality through exclusive partnerships and collaborations.
