A few years ago, with the support of our friend Dietitian Sandra Hood, we decided to set-up Compassionate Dorset to act as a local voluntary supporter group in our spare time for the leading farm animal welfare charity Compassion in World Farming.
We think that all animals deserve to be treated with respect and compassion, so we aim to help empower people to choose free range, higher welfare and sustainable food, and to eat less meat and more vegan-friendly alternatives. Our group's key mission is to help end factory farming, which we believe is the biggest cause of animal cruelty and environmental destruction on the planet.
Being Designers we naturally wanted to use our skills and experience to create our own unique brand, so we have had great fun creating printed materials and setting up a simple website. We decided to create a range of farm animal themed designs and posted them up as designs for t-shirts, clothing and other accessories printed on demand through Spreadshirt, RedBubble and Society6. The Compassionate Tee-Shop was born and our "Gorgeous" cow t-shirts were even featured in the women’s glossy fashion magazine Cosmopolitan.
We continue to have amazing feedback on our branding, products, website and support for the cause. Our 'Cow' and 'Highland Cow' designs continue to be popular sellers (along with our Hounds Off 'Sleeping Fox' t-shirt!). We also formed the Compassion Collective as a collaboration of designers who create art, t-shirts and accessories in aid of Compassionate Dorset and various animal welfare charities. We take part in Dorset arts & craft fairs, and we particularly love running our online print shop through Etsy.
In our spare time we are working on a new compassionate food guide and infographic which we hope to launch later in 2016.
