We are presenting The Drama store story
The Story of The Dharma Store
There’s two of us, and our vegan journey started in 2015. There was so much that we didn’t know (about GMO, animal cruelty, and so many other things) that we were making changes in our lifestyle as we learnt. It was difficult, and very challenging in the beginning because everywhere we turned there was milk, cheese, eggs, meat, processed food, high fructose corn syrup and god knows what else. What is worse, we were totally addicted to that stuff.
One day we came across one person wearing a t-shirt with a vegan message, who looked fit and healthy. We didn’t really know that much about veganism, so just out of curiosity we did a little research on it. Soon after that, we watched the documentaries. We discovered what we had really been eating, and this marked the first turning point for us. We swept our fridge and pantry, and threw out tons of “food,” and also anything that had countless unpronounceable ingredients. We stocked the fridge with only real food for the first time. It’s been a few years after that moment, but there are no regrets; we are now healthier than ever, and still learning.
Reflecting on how something as simple as a t-shirt with a vegan message could generate such a transformation in the life of two people, we were motivated to be a part of that. We knew we could create another t-shirt with a vegan message, but why stop there? That’s when The Dharma Store was born. We are a brand that believes fashion and awareness must be connected. We do it for you, so you can be a seed for change and also have cool graphic tees that align with your convictions.
There is a future vegan out there who doesn’t know that his/her life is going to change because of you!

Captain Paul Watson is the Founder of non-profit marine conservation group Sea Shepherd which uses direct action to protect marine life and expose illegal activities on the high seas. He launched the ship with Teri Irwin in December 2007.
He described captaining the M/Y Steve Irwin – which was part of a fleet of 11 vessels and multiple small boats – as ‘an honor’.
‘No longer safe’
“The lives we have saved and the difference we have made with this vessel has been awesome,” he added in a statement.
“We worked the ship hard, through horrific storms and crushing ice and after 11 years, our engineers have determined that the Steve Irwin is no longer safe for sea.”
Leading Neptune’s Army
The M/Y Steve Irwin was built in 1975 and served as an enforcement patrol boat for the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency for nearly 30 years.
After being acquired by Sea Shepherd, it was initially named the MY Robert Hunter, after the Canadian environmentalist who co-founded Greenpeace, but was renamed in honor of the host of the TV wildlife documentary series The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, who died in September 2006 on location in Queensland, Australia.
In addition to helping to save more than 6,000 whales from the illegal Japanese whaling fleet, the vessel has also seen action protecting pilot whales in the Faroe Islands, the Mediterranean bluefin tuna and humpback whales off Australia’s Kimberley coast.
The organization’s Board of Directors decided to retire the 59-meter-long flagship after a recent assessment revealed issues that could have put the crew at risk if the vessel was allowed to continue to lead Sea Shepherd’s fleet. For its final journey, the M/Y Steve Irwin will make its way to a recycling facility.
“In line with Sea Shepherd’s environmental ethics and standards the Irwin will be recycled,” said Sea Shepherd Australia’s Jeff Hansen.
“Together with the Steve Irwin, we have made history, saving hundreds of thousands of marine animals in defense of our oceans, humanity’s primary life support.”
The M/Y Steve Irwin’s flagship status will now pass to the M/Y Ocean Warrior.
