At Revolution Now, we believe that “we change what we must.” Our company aims to create visibility, opportunity and community for traditionally marginalized and racialized people.
We also strive to be environmentally responsible in all that we do. Through supporting Revolution Now, you are wearing your values for the world to see. In doing so, you are financially supporting local artists, making a donation to charities that provide tangible support to communities in need, disrupting the fast fashion industry through the purchase of eco-friendly materials and dismantling oppressive systems while rocking an amazing shirt!
Our shirt designs are all created by local artists who proudly represent their respective identities. Each shirt is designed to highlight the excellence of given communities and to generate funds to further their success. Eight dollars from the sale of each shirt will be donated to a charity that supports the highlighted community. We are proud to produce conscientious clothing that is ethically and Canadian made. Our shirts are made of organic cotton and are eco-friendly and sustainable.
