For those of you who don't know, Synergy Organic Clothing originally got its start selling clothes at Grateful Dead shows in the 90’s and for that reason, concerts and festivals will always have a special place in our heart. To this day, we continue to sell our clothing at around 150 events each year. We often hear that many of our customers are initially introduced to our brand by seeing our clothing at festivals, which serves as a lovely reminder to continue on with our festival circuit year after year.
One of our favorite festivals is FloydFest in Floyd, VA from July 23rd-27th, 2014. Having been a vendor at this event for four years now we are excited more than ever for great times that are sure to be had. This year the theme is “Revolutionary” and the theme certainly runs deep. In an effort to encourage fest-goers to revolutionize their lives, FloydFest is “bringing eco-friendly practices to the summer festival scene.” As an eco-conscious and sustainable clothing brand we couldn't be more thrilled to join forces with FF.
Teaming with the likes of Klean Kanteen to provide free drinking water to all attendees, this “initiative has successfully eliminated waste from over 200,000 paper and plastic cups” and is a prime example of the efforts put in place to keep their festival location, a gorgeous 80-acre plateau directly off the Blue Ridge Parkway, in prime condition. This year they are also adding an array of all-age outdoor activities available to FF ticket-holders. Whether you want to take a bike tour through Blue Ridge or a paddling excursion down Little River, or partake in some disc golf, FloydFest has got you covered!
We've upped the ante in our participation in the event as well! For the first time, since sending the Synergy Organic Clothing festival crew to this event, the owners of our company and their kids are making the trek to experience for themselves all of the amazing things they've heard about FloydFest and the cool town it’s located in. What we're really excited about is the fashion show that Synergy Organic Clothing has donated clothing to be used and styled in the “Revolutionary” theme. Make sure this is on your list of activities!

It’s officially Spring, and while that brings with it some much needed sunshine and blossoms, it also marks a year long pandemic anniversary. It’s wild to acknowledge how long we’ve all been in this; learning, changing, adapting, improvising in every way of being.
Awareness of the earth’s natural rhythms harmonizes us with her cycles, it helps us align our personal cycles with nature’s, which can give us more grounding and ease in an often unstable world. As the renowned author Joseph Campbell said, “The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.” The equinoxes and solstices of the year give us the perfect opportunity to do just that.
December 21st marks the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, where many cultures celebrate the first day of winter or “mid winter.” On this day the sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky, which means it is the shortest day and longest night of the year.
