Just got back from a scrumptious lunch at Hendel’s Market Cafe with Cindy Mense, Phil Valko, intern Stephanie, and volunteer Parks from Trailnet, along with several other folks from the Live Well Ferguson! task force. We convened to talk about possibilities for Safe Routes to School in Ferguson, where a group of folks are determined to make Ferguson a healthy and active community to live, work, and play in. It’s great being part of such a committed group of people.
So what does this have to do with the greening of Sportsprint? Well, on the surface maybe not much. But being a small family business that’s always been based in Ferguson, Missouri, we’re pretty committed to seeing Ferguson thrive as much as our own business. So a while back when we launched our line of EarthDance Tees (check them out in an album on our myspace page now: www.myspace.com/sportsprint ), we wanted to do a t-shirt that emphasized biking, walking and generally being active. An amazing graphic designer, Jake Houvenagle, stepped forth to come up with an awesome design for the tees,
and voila, Trailnet has a super cool supersoft organic t-shirt for sale that benefits their programs, including the Healthy & Active Communities program we met about for lunch today. See, so it’s all connected.
If you want to buy one (and I don’t know why you wouldn’t!), check out Trailnet’s merchandise page.
