Spring Sale up!

So, we just cleaned up our office and storage and found around 300 items – leftover stock, B grade goods, samples, returns and much more that we need to get rid of for new stock! Of course we took photos of every item and added a description. You can find all the items at reduced prices in our SALE section!

Organic & Fairtrade Shirts

We’ve finally found a good source for 100% organic and 100% fairtrade T-Shirts. But not enough, they are also manufactured solely using renewable green energy generated from wind and solar power. We’ll use them for our new collection which will be launched in April, as well as for all reprints. Yay!

Nowtopia by Chris Carlsson
How Pirate Programmers, Outlaw Bicyclists and Vacant-Lot Gardeners are Inventing the Future Today! CARLSSON. Outlaw bicycling, urban permaculture, biofuels, free software, and even the Burning Man festival are windows into a scarcely visible social transformation that is redefining politics as we know it. As capitalism continues to corral every square inch of the globe into its logic of money and markets, new practices are emerging through which people are taking back their time and technological know-how.

Bicycle! – Sam Tracy
Written by a working Bicycle mechanic, Bicycle covers everything you need to know to care for your own two-wheeled ride. The book cuts through the obtuse techno-jargon and delivers maintenance clarity with a touch of humour and radicalism while categorically denying mechanics’ supposed dreariness. With detailed descriptions of all maintenance tasks and repair situations, clearly illustrated with photos and drawings, this guide serves every rider’s needs From the professional Bicycle worker to the casual rider, this is the perfect manual.

Anarchism vs. Primitivism – Brian Sheppard
This pamphlet looks closely at the fundamental conflicts between anarchism and primitivism. It traces primitivism’s basic precepts back to their authoritarian roots, reveals primitivist misconceptions about anarchism, capitalism and technology, shows how the corporate media have used primitivism to discredit anarchism, and also shows how ideology-driven primitivists, much like fundamentalist christians opposed to evolution, have picked through anthropological evidence to support their predetermined conclusions, while ignoring data that contradict those conclusions.

the roots of compassion collective is working non-stop on a new state-of-the-art website and online shop.
you probably remember weÔÇÖve only launched our current one about 1 1/2 years ago, but weÔÇÖre not really happy with a few features and the current shop software is waaaaay out of date. so we decided to make a new one from scratch and throw in some cool new features.
there is still a bit work to be done, but hopefully weÔÇÖll be able to present our new roots of compassion home soon – so stay tuned!
