We just completed a membership campaign drive with Surfrider Foundation. The People’s Movement sold Surfrider our upcycled MOVMT wallets above cost so that Surfrider could incentivize people to join the foundation. We received great publicity from this collaboration including a tweet from Pearl Jam.
The campaign exceeded expectations with over 500 new Surfrider members receiving a MOVMT wallet.
The People’s Movement recently got a few of our favorite friends together to celebrate the launch of MOVMT, Stone Cold Fox and Westbrook Maker at Los Angeles’ coolest new store, Weekend Lovers. Things got a little rowdy and we may or may not have had a run in with undercover cops posing as guests!
We had live performances by Seaborne Barnes and our favorite band, The Hindu Pirates! Drinks were provided by Titos Vodka and Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer…the entire event was Plastic Free thanks to our friends at Repurpose Compostables! Epic night of art, inspiration and education!
…this was or first People’s Session a while ago featuring a magical performance by THE WHITE BUFFALO(click on name to see his website) in the stairwell of Â the old Â People’s Shoe’s HQ in Downtown LA. It was a jazzy little evening that also included an inspiring talk by The Plastic Pollution Coalition(click on link) teaching us about what we can do to stop the ever destructive “single use plastics.” The crowd was especially full of cheer thanks to friendly conversation and the homemade, organic, Topanga Elixir (with or without vodka or rum!) that my girlfriend brought down.
Keep posted for the Launch of The People’s MOVMT and the rebirth of the People’s Sessions this fall, 2011!
