There's two of us, and our vegan journey started in 2015. There was so much that we didn't know (about GMO, animal cruelty, and so many other things) that we were making changes in our lifestyle as we learnt. It was difficult, and very challenging in the beginning because everywhere we turned there was milk, cheese, eggs, meat, processed food, high fructose corn syrup and god knows what else. What is worse, we were totally addicted to that stuff.
One day we came across one person wearing a t-shirt with a vegan message, and they looked fit and healthy. We didn't really know that much about veganism, so just out of curiosity we did a little research on it. Soon after that, we watched the documentaries. We discovered what we had really been eating, and this marked the first turning point for us. We swept our fridge and pantry, and threw out tons of "food," and also anything that had countless unpronounceable ingredients. We stocked the fridge with only real food for the first time. It's been a few years after that moment, but there are no regrets; we are now healthier than ever, and still learning.
Reflecting on how something as simple as a t-shirt with a vegan message could generate such a transformation in the life of two people, we were motivated to be a part of that. We knew we could create another t-shirt with a vegan message, but why stop there? That's when The Dharma Store was born. We are a brand that believes fashion and awareness must be connected. We do it for you, so you can be a seed for change and also have cool graphic tees that align with your convictions.
There is a future vegan out there who doesn't know that his/her life is going to change because of you!
