This spring, we brought exciting, interactive programming to each college campus we visited. Students had a chance to compete for prizes, and could snag a sweet tee by showing support for their student organizations.

HeadCount hit the road with us on the Ben Harper & Relentless7 tour with Reality Check, their popular eco-trivia game! They were joined by the Sierra Student Coalition and a student organization on each campus. Test your knowledge, win signed artist merchandise, Brita Filter For Good water filters, and other sweet prizes!

Eco-friendly screen printing from Studio 3 was a big hit, with t-shirts and tote bags from Anvil's eco-collection. On the Drake tour, you could find us on your campus during the day. If you caught us on the Ben Harper & Relentless7 tour, you could visit us in the nightly Eco-Village at each concert to score a shirt! Studio 3 is an eco-conscious textile collaborative specializing in revitalized vintage and organic cotton home textiles, live screen printing events, and community outreach.
