Last night a friend of mine alerted me to a very cool Kickstarter campaign. It's no secret if you read my blog, or really see anything I post on social media that I am very pro unisex clothing. I think it's super important that we teach our children that colours are nothing to do with gender and sexuality and that girls can be just as interested in space as boys and boys just as interested in looking after a doll as a girl might. Equality my friends!
The Kickstarter campaign I heard about was set up by Gecko Clothing. Gecko are a UK brand who specialise in unisex clothes. They are currently trying to raise money to support their brand and expand their range of funky clothes. There are only 4 days to go and, bless them, they still have a way to go to reach their goal. Though I have to say they've done well, they've raised £3,025 so far! In fact, I had to pledge myself and went for £20. This is something I am passionate about after all!
I wanted to write about them today to help spread the word. As bloggers we have access to a great audience. I like to use my "voice" to help those I can! I really like Gecko's eco credentials. They aren't just about unisex clothes, they like to keep things as good for people and the planet as possible. Sheep poo paper tags on clothes! Fairtrade organic cotton with no nasties. Clothes made in Fairtrade and GOTS registered factories who support local small farmers. And something else which is a bonus - their clothes are built with cloth bums in mind so are extra roomy!!
I can't make you go and pledge, but I'd love it if you'd take a look!
Happy Friday and if you have a kids fashion post, please do join in below!
