Travel Tip Tuesday: {r}evolution apparel

"10 PIECES. 100 OPTIONS. LIGHTWEIGHT, VERSATILE, PACKABLE, SUSTAINABLE, AND DESIGNED WITH LOVE." - {R}EVOLUTION APPAREL

When traveling, I always look for clothes that can make my pack or suitcase as light as possible. I have a few favorite items, but when I saw {r}evolution apparel on Kickstarter a few months ago, I knew that I needed to add their "versalette" to my repertoire of travel clothing. {r}evolution apparel, made by Kristin Glenn and Shannon Whitehead, fellow travelers and "kitchen table philosophers," saw a need for light, sustainable, and well designed clothing. These girls are rad, and I am pretty sure I would become fast friends with them!  


This one piece is not only stylish, but would probably eliminate half of the clothes I bring on a trip and is eco friendly to boot! 

In their own words: 

"It takes incomprehensible amounts of energy and waste to produce the clothes we consume. Much of that apparel ends up in landfills, with the average American throwing away nearly 70 pounds of clothing and textiles each year. It’s time to rethink the way we design apparel — from the raw materials to the end use."
