2016 was the hottest year on record in more ways than one. It was a year of catastrophic climate and weather disasters. It was a year that found the people of Flint still fighting for justice and accountability, bringing the issue of lead poisoning in American cities further into view. It was the year that brought the Standing Rock Sioux and their resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) to the attention of the world. It was the year that ushered in the most hostile administration to the environment and its people that we’ve seen in our lifetime.
But now is not the time for despair, but for awareness, for action.
When it comes to the health of our planet and its people, we have to get it together. Our survival depends on it. Our planet demands it. It is with that in mind that we created the “Get It Together People, love Earth” t-shirt. Earth has something to say, now it’s time we listen.
We couldn’t think of a better organization to partner this tee with than Earth Justice. For more than four decades, Earth Justice, the nation’s original and largest nonprofit environmental law organization, has been the legal backbone for thousands of organizations, fighting on behalf of Earth and its inhabitants free of charge. And as we brace ourselves for what 2017 has in store for us, we are honored to support Earth Justice as they continue to fight the good fight.
