Be Love: Apparel on a Mission of Peace
Photo credit: Be LoveBe Love isn't your typical apparel company. Its sweatshop-free and mostly organic line of men's, women's, and kids' shirts serves to promote peace, which isn't too much of a stretch when you consider that its founders are board members of Common Peace: The Center for the Advancement of Nonviolence, a non-profit that has provided adult nonviolence workshops for the residents of Los Angeles for the past 12 years.
KamGi Chak and Kyle Finch, partners in business and life, donate 10 percent of Be Love's profits to Common Peace, while using their Web site as a springboard for conversations about nonviolence. Under "Curriculum," you'll find an excerpt from Common Peace's 64 Ways to Practice Nonviolence; "Actions/Events" lists peace marches and rallies taking place in L.A.
The shirts start at $30, but you can get $10 off any women's or men's shirt by using the promo code "BeLoveSpecialSavings".
