Why Inside Out Active?:
Inside Out Active is a faith-based, eco-activewear brand that emphasizes the importance of working out inner health as well as physical health. I believe positive change starts with the individual, changed from the inside out through love (John 3:16). Then by spreading the love of Jesus, stewarding our bodies, families, communities, environment, and resources, we can make a positive impact on what truly matters, people. My challenge to you is to mature in the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22) and then extend those character traits to others, and love like Jesus loved.
On the manufacturing end, I wanted to create a clothing line that puts people and the stewardship of our resources first. In my textile science class in college, I found out how terrible the fashion industry is for exploiting workers and damaging the environment in its processes, so I wanted to do something differently. In an effort to give consumers better options and hopefully create a demand in the industry for a better standard of practice I've chosen to use environmentally friendly textiles, caring manufacturers, and design with love, purpose, and encouraging prints to ensure you are getting a product you can be proud to own. The fruit of the Spirit is also printed on each garment label and hang tag.
A portion of our proceeds goes to Samaritan's purse. It was too hard for me to choose just one cause to support because there are so many that I am passionate about. Thankfully Samaritan's Purses' funds go to many different avenues that help people in desperate need and best of all, they do it all in the name of Jesus!
