How VieVita Began

VieVita has come a long way since the summer of 2017, when Antje (Co-founder) went to Thessaloniki, Greece to volunteer with Help Refugees Uk and Indigo Volunteers. While being there, she worked alongside two particularly inspiring organisations, Soul Food Kitchen, who have been providing a hot meal for refugees and people living homeless in Thessaloniki Greece and Be A Robin, that help by organising recreational and educational activities for refugees.

 

The ongoing refugee crisis has impacted millions of men, women and children who have been forced to leave their war-torn homes in search for a better life in Europe. However, many of them have been met by brutality and ignorance rather than kindness and acceptance. 

 

Greece currently hosts approximately 50,000 refugees, yet many people are still living in unsafe and overcrowded “Refugee Camps.” Therefore, 50% of the profit earned will be sent directly to these two organisations so they can continue doing their life-changing work, whilst the other 50% will only go to sustaining VieVita. 

 

Additionally, the fashion industry produces 10% of all humanity’s carbon emissions and is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply and is the second largest polluter in the world, after the oil industry.

 

This is why we have decided to partner with Kromtex, an ethically driven clothes manufacturer that focuses on the wellbeing of their workers whilst only using recycled materials to produce new garments.

Help us be part of this journey and achieve this mission!
