Rachel & Sarah Stanton
Rachel and Sarah Stanton recently started a one-for-one clothing line, Fruitstrology, which for every product sold donates a serving of fruit to a child in Philadelphia through Philabundance’s Fresh For All program. The twins developed a line of nine fruits screen-printed on V-necks and colored jeans.
At Temple, Rachel and Sarah became involved in urban gardening and saw fresh food benefitting local children, but they also noticed many children eating candy from corner stores. “Fruitstrology is a creative way to give children in Philadelphia easier access to fresh fruit,” Rachel said.
