Fwd: NYC Designer Launches GBT Line
Launched by Brooklyn bird club members Tina and Angie ,it's a vital conservation movement to save critical grassland habitats.
"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it; the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show."
- Andrew Wyeth, American painter

North America has lost 3 Billion Birds in the last 50 years.
Tina Alleva and Angie Co recently launched The Bird Collective, an apparel company featuring eco-friendly clothes and accessories, to help fund projects that can reverse that decline and create a better future for birds and wildlife.
They chose GBT as the first conservation organization the Bird Collective will support!
GBT will receive 15% of sales through the next six months. The funds will support the land trust's work to conserve critical habitat for endangered and at-risk grassland birds.
GBT will continue to receive 15% on all sales in the GBT line.
