Hi, I'm Co-Founder of the world's first Fair Trade & eco-friendly cyclewear company VELECO.
Our aim is provide sweatshop free cyclewear, that is stylish and affordable.
On 4th June we launched a Kickstarter to raise £20,000 ($31,322) in 30 days to help us launch our new collection, which includes a new cycling jacket made from recycled polyester (which was once 12 plastic bottles), urban cycling shorts & Fairtrade certified cotton cycling t-shirts & hoodies. Which we hope will do some good and help to change the way people cycle across the world.
We're different to other cyclewear companies as we use natural, organic and recycled materials wherever possible. Our workers are paid a fair wage, and we pay a Fair Trade premium on every garment made which goes into a workers fund in Pakistan for heath & welfare projects & provides a cash bonus for workers in India.
So please pledge & share here http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1379401843/veleco-changing-the-way-you-cycle-forever
