"VieVita is about purposeful products to support the ideology that every decision, action, and thought can be guided by kindness.
By doing this, eventually people will begin to notice that even the smallest of acts creates a ripple effect that travels unimaginable distances.
We believe that no human is illegal and that we all deserve to have a safe place to call home.
Let's start showing more kindness to other living beings to help achieve the world we all deserve.
It's not that hard."

Meet the Team
Ethically made attire with the intention to inspire
The words “Just be kind.” is not simply a phrase on a t-shirt. Our mission is to try to support the ideology that every decision, action, and thought can be guided by kindness. By doing this, eventually people will begin to notice that even the smallest of acts creates a ripple effect that travels unimaginable distances.
Over the summer of 2017, Antje and her friend, Luise, went to Thessaloniki (Greece) and volunteered through Help Refugees Uk and Northern Greece Volunteers to sort out clothing donations in the Warehouse. While being there, we worked with two particularly inspiring organisations, we wanted to help support Soul Food Kitchen and Be a Robin (see below). Therefore, the profit earned through this website will be sent directly to these two organisations so they can continue doing their life-changing jobs.
Help us be part of this adventure and achieve this mission!

Soul Food Kitchen
“Our implementing partners in Greece – the Soul Food Kitchen – have been providing a hot meal for refugees and people living homeless in Thessaloniki Greece.
Founding members of the team said “Volunteering in Greece gave us insight into refuges’ needs. They need better lives altogether, but daily survival depends on food. So, we decided to cook.”
During the winter months, nothing is more comforting than a hot meal and Soul Food Kitchen are handing out hundreds per day.
Having a hot meal in your belly gives you energy, strength and a mental boost. We could not be prouder to be funding such a vital project.”- Help Refugees Uk about Soul Food Kitchen
BE A ROBIN
“With Be A Robin we want to help refugees to be able to strive for happiness and freedom with dignity. Countless well-organised NGOs are doing some fantastic work and helping out with toiletries, blankets, clothes, medicine, tents, and daily bread. Everything is lacking.
With the donations that we gather we want to help in our own way. We utilise the money for projects that are meant to feed the souls and intellects of the refugees.
By organising recreational and educational activities our participants are drawn out, if only for a few hours a day, of their monotonous everyday lives, in which ‘Waiting‘ is their only calling.”

Did you know?
The fast fashion industry produces ~1 billion garments annually.
The fast fashion industry emits 1.2 billion tons of CO2 equivalent per year.
The fast fashion industry is responsible for producing 20% of global wastewater.
So, how can we make sure we are doing our best to ensure that the people making our clothes are treated well? How can we ensure that we are trying to slow down the negative effects of "fast-fashion"?
The answer to those questions are, we work with a family run supply company from our home-county (Portugal) who works with small companies mainly in Europe and specialise in small quantities. All of their products are non-toxic.
Additionally, we are looking to begin working with recycled garments and "pre-loved" garments as well.
Keep an eye on this space, for more updates, and a tour of the factory where the clothes are actually made!
