What’s the most eco-friendly apparel? Clothing that doesn’t have to be made because it’s already here, right? So, when you want to print new designs on the most eco-friendly T-Shirts, you would of course use them. And that’s exactly what STAY VOCAL does. STAY VOCAL is a Green America-certified reuse apparel brand. We rescue T-Shirts and give them a second life.
Our mission is to encourage people to reuse whenever possible. We do this by providing a variety of ReUse Apparel that embraces different fashions, styles, and humor. By reusing, we’re helping to protect our planet’s precious resources.
About half of our apparel line is made from brand new garments that were going to be destroyed. The balance comes from thrift stores and other sources, allowing us to offer more unique items.
Who We Are
STAY VOCAL was founded and is still operated by Alex Eaves, who has worked in the T-Shirt industry since 1998, with seven years of experience as a merchandiser for high-profile touring rock bands. Recently, Alex has entered the speaking and workshop circuit, spreading the word of reuse and the STAY VOCAL brand.
Founded in 2003 as a skateboard and apparel brand, STAY VOCAL has certainly evolved. In 2008, after dabbling in reuse, but seeing mass amounts of waste in the T-Shirt industry, Eaves decided to convert to strictly reused apparel. That year, he entered his idea into a small business contest and won!

How We Get Involved
In 2013, STAY VOCAL plans to expand its wholesale focus, targeting 20-30 selected stores throughout the country to carry our merchandise. This will be supported by a "Reuse Showcase Tour" conducted by Alex and aimed at engaging audiences in the benefits of reusing and a zero-waste, green lifestyle.
