Vote With Your Wallet, AND Your Ballot

Vote With Your Wallet, AND Your Ballot

Surely you’ve heard the saying “vote with your wallet.” And more and more, our generation is doing just that. Young folks these days care about the meaning and mission behind a company, and often go out of their way to support businesses that share their own values. According to one survey, 81% of people believe that business can be a force for positive social and environmental change. In fact, the vast majority of millennials want to see brands and businesses take a stand on the issues they care about. If...

PERFORM: An Evolution.

PERFORM: An Evolution.

If you’ve been around and followed DNDL’s moves in the latter half of 2017, you witnessed A LOT. We moved into our own giant warehouse, we brought screen printing entirely in house, & we launched our PERFORM line to start manufacturing our own custom pieces. I love screen printing & graphic design, but I also love quality fitness apparel. I have a passion for combining fitness, fashion, & function. That said, manufacturing athletic performance apparel has been a dream of mine for quite some time, but a lot needed to...

Doe-nuts & Deadlifts... Let's Save a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

It is no secret that I have a love for animals. From being a moral vegan to donating to several rescues around the country, my philanthropy is more often than not extended to non-human living creatures. Where does this love for animals come from? It first came from my father, but mostly from my younger sister, Maria Cagney.  My family grew up with a lot of obscure pets. My dad hated for animals to live in pet stores, so he would often bring home dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, and reptiles. We...

DNDL Jock Jams: A Playlist Curated By the DNDL Athletes

I don't know about you, but I spent a lot of my childhood rocking out to Jock Jams. Today, my lifting jams are quite different from the dance and hip hop centric Jock Jams of my youth; I prefer to work out to 70s hits and classic rock. But I've found as I've bounced around from gym to gym over the past several years that everyone's lifting playlists vary across a wide wide musical spectrum. Some folks work out to country music. Some prefer trap and hip hop. Others enjoy indie...

5 Reasons the LGBTQ Community Rocks our Rainbow Socks

5 Reasons the LGBTQ Community Rocks our Rainbow Socks

We thought we’d do something different here on the DNDL Digest in honor of the release of this year’s PRIDE Collection. We fully recognize that we cannot be the mouthpiece for an entire community of peoples, and the DNDL team acknowledges our responsibility, as both LGBTQ identifying individuals and as allies, to use our platform to amplify the voices of others who do not have the same opportunities to speak their truths to such a large audience. So rather than talk about how rad the Badge of PRIDE shirts are...
