Featured on CH in the past for their provocative and often politically-inspired clothing line, Akomplice's latest mission is to paint the town white. Colorado-based brothers Mike and Patrick McCarney recently teamed up with Conveyor Fred Segal to produce a paint kit that helps support the Paint Project—an organization that aims to paint roofs around the world white, reflecting the suns rays, keeping houses cooler and thus reducing cooling costs to help slow global warming.
U.S. Secretary of Energy Steve Chu explains, "Making roads and roofs a paler color could have the equivalent effects of taking every car in the world off the road for 11 years." The paint pack is not only an easy way to get started personally, but additionally 10% of the paint pack profits will benefit the White Roof Alliance.
Now available from the AK Store, the Paint Pack sells for $49 and includes a limited edition t-shirt, an Akomplice x Conveyor Fred Segal paintbrush and a hand-numbered certificate of authenticity.
