There is definitely a positive shift happening on this planet. We are seeing more and more people and businesses beginning to live and act with a deep awareness for our Mother Earth. Here in this talking story, we are fortunate enough to catch up with Tom Hardless, the Founder of the uplifting brand, iamVibes. iamVibes creates amazing and empowering yoga wear, promotes a healthy and conscious lifestyle & community, and inspires people to become the best versions of themselves. Thanks for inspiring Tom!
Tell us about the vision at iamVibes…
The vision at iamVibes is to project a creative frequency that inspires the Protection & Alignment of one’s Mind, Heart, Body and Spirit, in the hope that our followers and customers can be uplifted to create and inspire others. Further more, my sacred intention behind all I create is to uplift and bring light and healing to the female pain body.
How does your clothing embody “living yoga”?
To me, embodying yoga is about taking the blocks, struggles and strengths from your practice and seeing how they are mirrored in your every day life. iamVibes serves as a symbolic reminder to remain present in your Yoga, day to day. Our Hamsa symbol we manifested holds such a powerful energy and aesthetic, we hope when it is worn or gazed upon it is like a remembering or affirmation to bring you back into a sacred state of being in all you do.
What do you do to help the planet/how can we all live a little bit more sustainable?
Personally, I am more sustainable within myself by adopting a fully plant based diet. You will be blown away by how much pollution, water waste and deforestation is coursed by the agriculture of animals. As a note, livestock and their byproducts account for at least 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, or 51% of all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. Once I looked into this information it really made me realize driving an eco friendly car or wearing sustainable products was only a small part of the puzzle. To really make change we must adapt what we consume in a more conscious and sacred way.
