I used to call the forests and bayous in southeast Texas my home, but over the years, I watched them disappear. Houston's urban sprawl consumed acres of untouched nature, and reckless development and land use left no trace of the natural beauty that once existed. It was devastating to see the destruction of the land I love, and the impact of this loss was made even more apparent in 2017 when Hurricane Harvey flooded thousands of communities, including my own.
The flood destroyed thousands of livelihoods, and I knew that something had to be done to help. But systemic hurdles left me feeling powerless, making me wonder why it was so hard to do something good in the community. In 2019, I decided to take action and establish Livelihood® with a simple mission; to make it as easy to help your community as it is to buy your favorite t-shirt.
At Livelihood®, we invest 25% of the profits in hosting volunteer events where you can help conserve and restore native habitats and parks in American cities. Since we started, we've planted thousands of trees, restored countless acres of native habitats, and helped improve the quality of life of people in cities across the country. All this has been made possible through our premium clothing essentials made with Texas cotton.
As we look back at all the impact you've helped make through your volunteer efforts or from your purchases, we confirm what we always knew: you have the power to change the world. Whatever your journey is, remember you can make a difference, and you’re never alone in your desire; we just hadn't found each other until now.
We understand that creating your custom size can feel daunting. But not to worry, it's actually quite easy and completely risk-free. If you're not 100% happy with your fit, we'll remake your first shirt from scratch free of charge or give your money back.
