Blog : Get it Going Celebrates Newest Gigstar

By Patrick Haigis | Sep 10, 2014 | in

Get it Going is highlighting its newest GiGstar, Josh Andrews! Get it going is a lifestyle brand offering apparel that is responsibly sourced and made in the USA. Their mission is simple- put on your GiG shirt, hop on the bus, and make it happen. GiGstars are people who are living that mission and getting active, turning their dreams into reality in the name of positive change. Josh is one half of the Pedal for Power cycling team that recently completed a 2,000-mile trip down the West Coast.

The goal of the trek from Vancouver, Canada to San Diego, California is to raise $50,000 for a complete installation of a solar electric power system at the nonprofit Cross Roads House, a homeless and transitional living shelter in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Josh is a firm believer in clean energy for our future. He sees conserving the environment as “part of our everyday routine.” “This project is a way to inspire the community that I live in that there are renewable energy sources available,” Josh says.

When Pedal for Power reaches the necessary funds and the solar array is installed, it will save the Cross Roads House over $3200 per year in energy costs. That saves the environment (and us) 27,000 pounds of CO2 emissions, which is the equivalent of planting an additional 560 trees per year.

Josh’s endurance and dedication to environmental protection mirror some of the values that Get it Going is proud to promote. For more information about Get it Going and to learn more about their GiGstars, click here!
