Global Recess Apparel is Here!!!

Our mission is simple--To spread global responsibility through fashion. Global Recess builds awareness and promotes action toward global issues that are often overlooked or unheard of, including but not limited to: human trafficking, the military use of children, and poverty. Global Recess t-shirt designs tell stories and are inspired by abstract art. Each issue has its own unique design, yet maintains a cohesive brand identity. A portion of the proceeds of each sale is donated to a selected organization combating that specific issue, thus fostering a “Global Recess.” Each shirt’s packaging includes a short description of the issue it is combating and information regarding the charitable organization receiving the proceeds.

Global Recess was founded in 2009 by model/entrepreneur Erica "Emarie" Wiltz. Her international travels as a model exposed her to many crises that wreak havoc on the lives of people they affect and inspired her to take action and do her part. Emarie combined two of her passions--fashion and being of service to others--to create Global Recess, “Fashion for Humanity."
