I think I am becoming an EcoGeek without even realizing it. As I learn more about the products I have used in the past and the harm they cause to my family and environment I am taking steps to change those past practices. I love this Eco Geek character from Eco Geek Boutique. He may look like your average Joe Worker, but inside he is concerned about his planet and conservation! What a conversation piece to wear a shirt with Eco Geek on it!!
"EcoGeek designs and sells responsibly sourced t-shirts and other products that help you make a statement AND a contribution to save the planet, all without having to try too hard.Themed shirts like being Carbon Neutral, Climate change, Respecting the Earth, Windmill Power, Public Transportation and more.

Meet Erin, founder of Eco Geek Boutique!
How did you come to start EcoGeek Boutique?
"In 2007, upon briefly leaving politics and pursuing higher education, I conceptualized and started EcoGeek Boutique while I was finishing graduate school at the University of Southern California. At first, I used it as a way to relieve stress and nurture my creativity, but now I am working to shape it into a fun, hip voice for the environment that ideally everyone can relate to in some way. Through my work in politics, and especially through the political work I did surrounding the environment, I have become extremely passionate about building awareness for the consequences of climate change, and helping people find their own unique ways to help combat the problem.
In life and through EcoGeek Boutique, I try to tackle politically-charged issues with style, humor, and a wee bit of sarcasm. Throughout this process, I have always believed finding common ground, and using humor where possible, is the best way to encourage people to address the growing concerns of our planet."
How do you choose prints for the shirts?
What do you feel is one of the biggest ways people can start toward becoming EcoFriendly?I believe one of the best ways people can work to create a more eco-friendly lifestyle is to pick one environmentally-friendly thing they believe in, and turn it into a habit...then continue to build on that.
