Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 01, 2014
1People1Earth is pleased to announce a feature article in the magazine BYOU. BYOU is a national self esteem publication for tween and teen girls. The magazine features positive role models that will inspire the readers. The article features the inspirational company 1People1Earth and the "Real Girls" behind the story. A trio of sisters from Minnesota has taken their passion for doing good, their desire to make a difference in the world and their love of fashion to launch a for-profit company that donates profit. The company is called 1People1Earth.
The founders of 1P1E are, Meaghan 18, Katie 16, and Libby 14. The sisters launched their website, 1People1Earth six months ago.
Their story is simple. After much research and late night talks (usually involving loud music and chips with guacamole) 1People1Earth was born.
A key motivator was reading the book “Start Something That Matters” by Blake Mycoskie, the founder and CEO of Tom’s Shoes. His solution was to create a for-profit business that was sustainable and not reliant on donations.
The sisters read the book cover to cover and it became their bible and Blake their mentor. Energized they got to work. With their love of fashion and vision for positive action led them naturally to creating t-shirts with inspirational messages.
They than added a few accessories, cell phone cases, lanyards and trendy wristbands.
The website 1People1Earth is live and tells their story, their vision and purpose.
“The purpose is simple; cause positive action and offer people value for doing this” the sisters explain on the site.
The girls designed t-shirts incorporating their positive message and global optimism. The girls refer to their message as “Wonders of the World”. Their first “Wonder” they’re promoting is PEACE.
The girls have carefully selected 4 organizations to fund, which share their vision for positive action in promoting world peace and helping individuals, communities and nations enjoy a safer world. The girls will donate 10 percent among these charities.
