By Krista Beitl, Owner
Backstory: After volunteering at local animal shelters we wanted a way to raise money to help support homeless animals. This is where our dream of creating t-shirts and cards to help promote animal adoption began. We give 20% of each sale back to animal shelters in NE Ohio.
We started with t-shirts and have expanded to cards, decals and dog bandanas within our first year!
Chewlinka G.E.A.R. is new to the Wildroots Creative Family as of last fall, so welcome her! Krista decided to join Wildroots because she had seen wonderful things about the events and wanted to be part of the Wildroots Small Business Community! Krista and Chewlinka G.E.A.R. loves the supportive community of small businesses in the area!
The vision for Chewlinka G.E.A.R. is to raise awareness about animals in shelters and she would love to have her products carried in retail stores so that more people think twice about helping animals in need.
Outside of the business, Krista loves spending time with her pups and husband. She also loves traveling and seeing new parts of the world!
