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!

While this year has brought immense uncertainty, change and chaos, the turning of the wheel is always constant. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, somehow, some way, we have made it to fall. Marked by the equinox- equal day and equal night- and the shift into Libra season on September 22nd, this is the time of year where we inch inward towards ourselves, towards the shadows of solace and reflection.
2020 has been both a time and a test of our personal and collective adaptability and resilience. The pandemic has created immense loss and uncertainty for everyone that we are all still navigating through as best we can. On top of that, our Golden state and many beloved areas have been unprecedentedly burning at an alarming rate.
We are proud that Synergy has been a leader in this movement for well over a decade. At our core, Synergy is not only committed to creating clothing with a minimal environmental impact, but also empowering men and women through ethical employment practices. Our motto is “How it’s Made Matters” and we have stood by that in our practices since day one.
