“ Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary — the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a Trim Tab. It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little Trim Tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a Trim Tab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go. So I said, “Call me Trim Tab.”
-Richard Buckminster Fuller
What Trim Tabs do
Awareness must be raised on an individual level first. Educate yourself and the ones closest to you on the topics and issues that matter. That is the first step of changing your community, which can lead to changing society. We believe that our blog and social media posts will help you on that mission. Unlike mainstream media, we cover various relevant topics in an objective way.
SPREAD THE MESSAGE
Continue the mission by sparking the interest and encouraging a wider circle of people to do the same, creating a snowball effect. Plant the seeds. Our apparel with eye-catching and thought-provoking art is already worn around the world, which helps more and more people become interested and involved in topics of human rights, environmentalism and animal rights.
Donate your time, donate your compassion. Donate what you can; it doesn’t have to be money. Help someone without expecting anything in return. If you can afford to donate money, make sure that your money is donated to a legitimate charity that uses the donation to help those in need, not to make money off someone else’s suffering. The majority of profits (30% – 100% depending on the product) from the sales of our apparel will be donated to various carefully selected legitimate charities supporting the causes.
