GCP29: Shib and Johnny Rather - The We'ed Rather Group
“We'ed rather help locally to affect change globally.”
Shib Rather – The We'ed Rather Group
This week on The Grit City Podcast we talk to Shib and Johnny Rather of The We'ed Rather Group, from Tacoma, WA. Shib and Johnny “The Electrical Benefactor” use over 80% of the profits from their t shirt and sticker company to fund local non-profit activities. They have organized clothing, food drives, even trips and special events for veterans recovering from PTSD. Currently they're looking into industrial hemp as a renewable building material: Hempcrete (who knew this stuff existed?). They are very active in the hemp and medical marijuana industries so we talk a little about the stigma attached to hemp and marijuana in general and we touch on the current state of the marijuana industry as they see it in Washington state.
