Fan Tees


Pull quote from a recent FB post:
Allen Ensign: Monster Creep is happy to announce, short of an act of god interfering, that merchandise will have t-shirts, these are the first ever Monster Creep t-shirts, simple black with white silk-screen lettering, . . .these are the first ever, Monster Creep t-shirts, right there should make some people I know get out to this show, . . .

And my comment, with hope for the best :-) 
Deborah Barnes some segues here..Hemp folks were promoting MJ seeds (protein) alt medicine and fibers et al as a clean crop as weeds are usually prolific which is why they are called weeds!! 

When a few dots are connected,  the tee shirt fiber, production, labor issues start bubbling around and the topic of investing (aka buying). into what one wants to see "grow" in the world, has to be faced. Most tee shirts are cotton a water hungry crop rarely grown sustainably (not to mention organically) Hemp tees exist, as do ethically sourced cotton shirts I understand the marketing punch but what, who else is getting promoted, under the obvious?

And the outcome:

Allen Ensign yeah, good idea, we are just starting out here, but maybe we should get going in that direction, hemp, . .
