We are so excited to announce the launch of our new vegan t-shirt company Please Don’t Eat My Friends! All of our shirts are 100% organic cotton and made in Southern California. 10% of the profits will be donated to a different farm animal sanctuary/pet rescue each month. For more information on our company please check out our about page. It would also mean the world to us if you gave us a follow on Instagram!
Our logo is taken from the top graphic of the Mike Vallely Barnyard Skateboard released in 1989. This skateboard was Mike’s Call To Arms for Animal Rights and ended up inspiring a generation of Vegetarians and Vegans.
There’s a new world coming, and it’s just around the bend.
There’s a new world coming, this one’s coming to an end.
There’s a new voice calling, you can hear it if you try.
And it’s growing stronger, with each day that passes by.
There’s a brand new morning, rising clear and sweet and free.
There’s a new day dawning, that belongs to you and me.
Yes a new world’s coming, the one we’ve had visions of.
Coming in peace, coming in joy, coming in love.
The Ducks T-Shirt artwork features the Ducks featured on the bottom of Mike Vallely’s Barnyard Skateboard released in 1989. This skateboard was Mike’s Call To Arms for Animal Rights and ended up inspiring a generation of Vegetarians and Vegans. On the original board the lettering on the Duck’s T-Shirts spelt out Mike’s last name. The artwork for our T-Shirt design has been updated to share our Pro-Vegan Message.
The artist Bigfoot, became a Vegetarian and later a Vegan inspired by Mike Vallely’s Barnyard Skateboard in 1989. In 1994 he began writing “Bigfoot” and his art has always depicted the conflict between respect for nature and the destructive agenda of humans. A frequent traveler to Japan, in 2013 he used a card with the words featured on this T-Shirt in Japanese to help communicate his dietary restrictions while visiting Japan. Later, he made this collage as a social media image and then did a small run of T-Shirts. It quickly became Mike’s favorite T-Shirt to wear (as he is a huge fan of Bigfoot’s art) and he felt strongly about it being a part of our first line of T-Shirts. It’s a true honor for us to work with Bigfoot.
