Take the ‘Wear no evil’ Pledge!

A friend recently sent this to me and while I have literally been doing this over the past 8 months or so I am now publicly taking this pledge to share with all of you.  Follow this link to sign up and share your pledge on your facebook page so we can all join together in this mission to support brands that are really trying to make a difference in the world.  Let’s vote with our dollars.  Pledge no evil!
