If you want to make a change in the world, you've got to find a way to make your actions reflect the change you wish to see. For most, this can be a challenge and we look to leaders, peers, friends... as guides in showing us this truth. I recently had the opportunity to get to know Jane, owner of London based eco fashion brand Joined in Life, and she is pursuing change with dogged persistence.

When purchasing a t-shirt from Joined in Life, you're not only getting a cozy new t-shirt cut from organic cotton textile and recycled plastic bottles, you're adding meaning to your life and someone else's. Jane has teamed up with Mary's Meals and donates 10% of all sales revenue to a child in need. Each t-shirt sale provide's a child with a fresh healthy meal at school for over a month.

I see more and more companies with a similar ethos as Joined in Life and it's incredibly inspiring to see brands basing their entire business model on giving back.
Not only are these t-shirts made with recycled materials but they are also screen-printed using environmentally friendly processes & water based inks.
They are unisex, with a comfortable relaxed fit and each design represent symbols of friendship, unity and coming together.

Combine these environmentally friendly processes with Jane's passion for giving and you have a company that is helping to change the world every day. We should all look at Joined in Life as a beacon of hope and inspiration for a brighter future.
