Livin' la Vida Local!

If you love to shop local and are proud to support your local farmer, wear it proud! You can help increase awareness and promote buying local just by getting dressed in the morning! :) Ok, before I go any further, and in the interest of full disclosure.... I must tell you that I am promoting my own product from Carefree Clothing Company, a t-shirt business that my sister and I have just started. It is our desire to provide fun and interesting designs that can also help raise awareness for important issues. Our first design is currently available for Pre-sale. You can purchase it now and it should ship out the first week of March. It is the "Local Life" design pictured here. The shirt is available in Asphalt and Chocolate and it is made right here in the USA.  
Please check out our online storefront, 


  1. Would it be considered hypocritical to purchase a "livin' la vida local" T-shirt from the internet and have it shipped a long distance?

  2. I suppose that is a question that only you can answer for yourself! It is a lot more local than most clothing items that you can buy considering it was made, designed, and printed here in the USA. The shirt helps promote a message that I think is important and that is why I chose it as the first design for our company. It will be also be available at some of the local farmer's markets soon...
    So, no, I don't consider it hypocritical to purchase a shirt online that lets you show your support for your local farmers. But, like I said... that is a question for you to answer for yourself.

  3. I really don't have a problem with it. I was just asking. :)

  4. Well, it's a legitimate question. As consumers, we should be asking those kinds of questions more regularly. If we all took our responsibility as a consumer more seriously, we could probably solve a lot of our society's problems! :)
