Green Body Brand (GBB) is a sustainable apparel with vegan/plant-based inspired graphic designs based in Washington DC. We interviewed founder Andy Nevers to learn more about their brand.
What makes your products special?
Green Body Brand is focused on helping with the elimination of animal cruelty, reduction of carbon emission, and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle. Through our unique apparel designs, we aim to educate and inspire those around us to live and work for a more sustainable tomorrow.
Our team designs all the graphics used on our products. We want everything to be unique, inspired, and made from the heart. Our designs focus on vegan, plant-based, and sustainable concepts and consist of phrases, digital illustration, hand drawn typography and more.
When did this brand start?
How was this social enterprise started?
Green Body Brand (GBB) began as an idea stemming out of Plantarion (https://plantarion.com/). Andy Nevers, the founder of Plantarion and GBB is a strong advocate for the plant-based movement. After going vegan a few years ago, Andy has set out on a mission to help make the world a healthier place. The creation of our clothing brand is a major step forward in helping Andy realize this dream.
What is your social mission?
Green Body Brand was woven from the belief that sustainable fashion should be for everyone. Our diverse, majority woman-led team aims to create beautifully designed clothing that is not only top to bottom eco-friendly, but accessible to all.
What charitable organizations do you support?
We want to make the world around us more sustainable and eco-friendly, and we want to inspire others to do the same. We’re happy to partner with organizations that make positive change. This could range from non-profit organizations that fight against animal cruelty and testing, to those that clean our planet’s ecosystems, to those that research new and innovative ways to consume less waste or recycle more.
