This past Fall, STAY VOCAL and singer/songwriter Dandelion Snow went on the 2-week long STAY VOCAL ReUse & Schmooze Tour. We purposely didn't put any dates on the shirt, because we plan on doing more touring soon and really we'll never stop reusing and schmoozing!
BONUS: Free Dandelion Snow "Middle of Nowhere" 5-Song EP download with every purchase!
About The Shirt
This T-Shirt features custom artwork by Mike Rosen-Molina, printed on the reverse side (inside out) of rescued T-Shirts, giving them a second life. Our apparel line is made with both brand new T-Shirts that were going to be destroyed, as well as pre-worn shirts that have been washed and treated. We only use garments with minimal printing on the outside to prevent any possible discomfort.
- Shirt Colors: Various
- Print Color: Navy
About The Design
When I had finalized the tour concept and Dandelion Snow got on board, I gave Mike some basic ideas about what I wanted. He took those ideas and put his own amazing cartoon spin on it. I never imagined the people at the coffee shop like that, but I love it! So perfect. After only a few minor changes here and there, we had our first tour design, not to mention the first shirt with my face on it. It might be a cartoon, but it's still surreal.
About The Artist
As his parents moved around quite a bit, Mike has lived everywhere from Germany to Iceland to Delaware. He now resides in Chico, CA, which is where we met. Like me, he shares a passion for bad movies and great TV sitcoms, like ALF. We both also graduated from college with journalism degrees. Really, our main difference is that he can draw well and I can't. HA! You might remember Mike from 3/11 Day, as he made some amazing custom cartoon ReUse T-Shirts.

HOW THIS STAY VOCAL REUSE SHIRT CAME TO BE
Did you ever wonder what happens to all of the leftover merchandise when a company goes out of business or a band breaks up? Or what about the t-shirts of the team that doesn’t win the big game?
In a lot of cases, all of those shirts are unfortunately shredded into rags. Sometimes they are even burned.
To further our commitment to the ReUse movement, we have been working with companies to acquire as many of these garments as we can before they are destroyed.
By wearing this shirt, you are reducing the millions of pounds of discarded textiles that end up in landfills each year, saving energy, materials, and inspiring new ideas for change.
