From the Lonsome George & Co. website….
It began with a tortoise. After living in Ecuador for 10 + years and visiting the Galapagos Islands on several occasions we came across Lonesome George—its most famous resident and a worldwide conservation icon. As the last surviving Pinta Tortoise, Lonesome George’s cautionary tale of extinction unfolded as a result of human actions and mismanagement of scarce resources. Inspired by his story, we began Lonesome George & Co. to educate tomorrow’s youth and to prevent other Lonesome George situations from happening at a time of frightening and increasing extinction rates. Our triple-bottom-line business model ensures that 10% of every purchase directly funds youth educational programs that teach and empower future generations—to make better choices in our interdependent world. Lonesome George’s spirit and legacy lives on through the clothes we wear and the choices we make.
Lonesome George & Co. is a social enterprise organization that combines branded apparel and experiential education to ignite a mind shift towards global interdependence. We outfit agents of change.
I really like what Lonesome George represents and where they found their start. Companies that promote change and take an active role always get my attention! Their clothing offers a true representation of what they believe too, like with this Inspire shirt that I have. It says “Accept the Challenge. Inspire Change. Be An Agent.” That’s a great message on a lot of levels, and when I wear it I’m reminded that I can make a difference and inspire change too.

I also love this shirt because of the colour and style. I wasn’t convinced that this would be the right colour for me, but when I took a picture of myself wearing it, I immediately had lots of compliments about the colour and my picture. I like the round neckline and I love how parts of the message on the shirt are embroidered. I feel good when I wear this shirt, which is probably why I wear it so often.
Lonesome George & Co. offers a variety of colours and styles for children, men and women. I had a hard time choosing which shirt I wanted, and I’m sure you will too. They also have a line of accessories like hats, bags, towels and pendants.
