Keep it local, keep it clean, and keep it in the family
A peaceful stance is more than a clothing company. It is a way of life. It has been created for the people in this world that have made a conscious decision to coexist in peace and want to make a difference. A peaceful stance means respecting the environment and working toward a better future. Taking a peaceful stance means never giving up on something you believe in. A peaceful stance means loving without limits and killing with kindness. A peaceful stance is to be shared and enjoyed and respected and appreciated. Voice your peaceful stance. At one point or another one thing will be very, very clear; without a peaceful stance, no one stands a chance...
