Compassion Company Shirts


I love my new vegan Compassion Company shirts!



This shirt has pictures of different fruits and veggies, and it says Cruelty Free on the bottom :-)


Check out my little ZOO representing some of the animals that I save by not eating them :-)


I love showing off my veganism and compassion towards animals everywhere. And what is a better way to show it off than by wearing a shirt with a vegan message? I outgrew my old PETA shirts with vegan, anti-fur and anti-animal testing shirts. I no longer buy shirts from PETA for personal reasons, but I used to support them for years. I am happy that I recently found beautiful, organic, cute, vegan and well made shirts that are sweatshop free as well.




My very old fake leather purse got a fun makeover :-)

Vegan owned and operated, Compassion Company provides shirts that allow people to announce their cruelty free lifestyle to the world. They believe that the best way to affect social change is to lead by setting a positive example. They want everyone to feel proud about where their clothing came from at every point during production. To achieve this, all their designs feature original hand drawn art that you won’t find anywhere else. Their shirts are made from ultra soft recycled or organic cotton printed with water based and discharge inks to create clothing that is not only extremely comfortable but also minimizes environmental impact. The shirts themselves are sweat shop free, assembled by workers in South Carolina that are treated with respect and provided with benefits such as health, dental, paid vacations and more. All their screen printing is done by hand exclusively by their long time vegan friends at Leave Your Mark Screen Printing in Florida.
I love supporting a company that has these values and that is cruelty-free and vegan owned and operated. Also their designs are very unique and beautiful! And the quality of the shirts is amazing, they wash well and they look pretty day after day. The shirts are extremely comfortable, too :-)
When I got my first shirt I picked the wrong size but Compassion Company happily exchanged the shirt for a size that fit me better. Their customer service is outstanding! The women's shirts run a but smaller (tighter) so keep that in mind when placing and order. Follow their handy size chart to get the correct size here. I scored free shipping (via Vegan Cut). I got some pretty buttons and a sticker so I can spread the vegan message even better :-)


Here are some of their other cool shirt designs (the following pictures are from the Compassion Company website)



Compassion Company donates 5% off every sale to an organization that promotes animal rights and cruelty free lifestyle. They pick a different organization every three months. From August 1st to October 31st, this donation will be made to For The Animals Sanctuary located in Blairstown, NJ. Compassion Company views the contributions of farm sanctuaries to the struggle for animal liberation as absolutely vital and For The Animals Sanctuary is one piece of that puzzle. They have been lucky enough to meet several of the awesome folks who volunteer their time at the sanctuary working their own table at several of the vegfests they have attended. Not only are they all totally radical people but they also make some really incredible buttons and jewelry to help cover some of their expenses.


At the sanctuary, animals that would have lived a life of deprivation, pain, and constant fear are able to enjoy life, nature, companionship, and receive life-long veterinary care. And of course, they are showered with abundant love, attention, and compassion. Additionally, they actively engage in vegan outreach and invite people to enjoy the benefits to themselves, the animals, and the earth, of living a compassionate vegan lifestyle. For The Animals Sanctuary also provides a loving home to abandoned and homeless domestic animals in need of a place to call home.
Compassion Co. hopes you will take the time to learn more about the sanctuary by visiting their website where you can check out their wide array of animal liberation and vegan themed buttons and jewelry as well as make any additional donations.

  3. Best way to show off what you believe in is literally wearing your heart’s message on your sleeve. Those are totally cool shirts and badges; very unique that it’s apparently carefully and thoughtfully designed to shout out its compassion. And they look comfy to wear too.
