Hi everyone,

We have three days to go. Unfortunately, trends indicate that despite our amazing start, Black Brook will likely go unfunded. We remain over $4000 from our $12000 goal, but I want to emphasize the progress we've made. We came together behind an idea: business that is good for the environment is good for consumers and communities. I'm proud to have launched this project, and I'm proud to have all of you on board. Thank you!

We will not be relaunching Black Brook as it is now, but a reimagining process has already begun. I've received feedback from multiple environmentalists about the Boardwalk fleece, emphasizing that despite being made from recycled material, the hazards of washing polyester and releasing microfibers into the water supply remain. That said, when Black Brook eventually comes to market, we will be more conscious of this, and dedicate ourselves to natural materials like wool, flax, and cotton.

This has been an incredible journey, and the confidence you've shown in me, my idea, and the Black Brook team is astounding. Raising almost $8000 toward a worthy goal is no small achievement: thank you for joining me on this road.

You will be the first to know when Black Brook is redesigned. I'm not sure what form it will take, but you will be more than welcome on that journey as well. Be well, and thank you for your incredible support.

In gratitude,

Tys
