We bought a T-shirt screen printing shop in North Oakland!

Read our announcement

Eight summers ago, I met a little boy on a West Oakland street corner who was afraid to try a cool, refreshing Green Smoothie because he had diabetes.

So did his mom.

So did most of his community.

When I blended one just for him and assured him that it was safe, he was so thrilled that he saved more than half for his mother.

He carried it home to her and she loved it!

That day we served hundreds and hundreds of Green Smoothies on that corner for him and his friends, family and the whole community.

It was on that day, at that health and wellness fair that I set out on a mission to expose as many folks as possible, in communities like his to the concept that one Green Smoothie a day could improve their health dramatically.

In the fifth year of this journey, I realized this is a message for ALL of America.

Since then, I’ve been working with school children and teens in Oakland, teaching them about nutrition and how to blend fresh greens, fruits, and vegetables into delicious smoothies as a highly effective way to get nutrients into our bodies.

This summer we’re making our smoothies available to everyone on a sliding scale. Our crew sources locally in Berkeley-Oakland and blends in a restaurant kitchen in downtown Oakland.

Coming soon: Screen Printing

Starting this summer we’ll offer screen printing services including custom-ordered T-shirts, tote bags and other printed items, as well as classes, studio rentals, screens, and more. We are working with local, long-time screen printers who are training and leading us in fulfilling orders so you can feel good knowing that ordering from us both supports our work and that you’ll get high quality products.
