As a truly sustainable brand, Grant Blvd’s mission is to do what’s good for people & to do what’s good for our planet. How? By sourcing reclaimed fabrics, by manufacturing exclusively in Philadelphia, and by working to support incarcerated & returning citizens. Why? Because it’s time to recalibrate our systems. And our style.
What is Books Through Bars?
Books Through Bars is a volunteer-run, Philly-based non-profit that distributes free books and educational materials to incarcerated people across the country. Each week, they receive hundreds of letters from prisoners requesting books. Each year they send over 8,000 book packages. They, like Grant Blvd, believe that mass incarceration is not the answer to the struggles that lead people to crime. That said, “The answers to these problems is not imprisonment. It is knowledge”.
We couldn't agree more which is why we plan to support their efforts by sending a book for each garment you purchase.
