what is TNH
TheNakedHippie is a "purposed brand" of statement tshirts. A purposed brand is a brand that stands for more than itself. TheNakedHippie is a brand of t-shirts that invests 100% of it's profits into micro loans that help people in developing countries support themselves and their families by starting or growing small shops, stands and sidewalk businesses.

TheNakedHippie has a mindset that understands we all have an effect on the earth in a big way. All (yup, that's what we said, ALL) profits are invested using micro-loans in small business owners in developing countries. Additionally, every one of our organic tees you buy offsets water pollution by 3 gallons, supports global fair trade initiatives, and encourages crop rotation and sustainable farming.

Profits from every tee you buy go to invest in people in developing countries through micro-loans. The micro-loans help them start and grow small fruit stands and sidewalk businesses. This allows them to provide for their family and encourage economic growth in their community. The loan is then paid back, we use part of it to grow and spread the word about what we do, and the rest we reinvest in other people in these poor countries. We are the only brand in the world whose success relies 100% on the people we help. Our success is their succes.

How we're different from other "Social Businesses":
TNH completely embodies the idea of giving a man a fishing pole, rather than giving him a fish. Though giving him a fish is necessary for the immediate need (making sure he or she doesn't starve), we feel it's necessary to go a step further and give them the opportunity to stand on their own two feet and provide for themselves. A student at a business school recently created a diagram illustrating the different kinds of social business, and we loved it so much we decided to use it. Check it out:
