This post is sponsored by The Mountain® and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I have been selected as a Sponsored Blogger to attend the BlogPaws 2016 Conference on behalf of The Mountain® however we only work with brands we love. BlogPaws and my Sponsor are not responsible for the content of this article.

Planning a trip this summer & want to look stylish & be comfortable? See how we are traveling to BlogPaws Phoenix in style with The Mountain t-shirts! #blogpaws

How many of you have big plans this summer? For us, one of our big summer adventures is about to begin – BlogPaws Phoenix! Some of you may remember it as the big convention I went to last year in Nashville, where I got to take an in-depth look into many brands and share fantastic information with all of you about the latest in the pet industry, including some of our favorite natural brands. This year, Ivi and I are going on a grand adventure to Phoenix to go to this year’s conference. That’s right, we are driving 27 hours from the Cincinnati, OH area to Phoenix, AZ – bringing this dog mom and her trusty malamute on a grand adventure! Best of all, Mom will be traveling in style in some of the coolest t-shirts around from The Mountain®.

Never heard of The Mountain? While you may not recognize the name, you probably know them from some of their amazing t-shirts. For over 21 years, they have been printing t-shirts and been a staple since the early 90s with licensed tees from the Grateful Dead, Bob Marley & Jimi Hendrix, as well as having hundreds of eclectic designs, seen on the likes of Jack Black, Three Six Mafia, Tyler the Creator, Matty Mullins, Travis $cott, Jessie J, NBA stars Joakim Noah, Matt Bonner, and many others. Of course, they are also behind one of the most iconic shirts out there – Three Wolf Moon®. If you want t-shirts that make a statement or are just simply fun, The Mountain is the place to go!

Along with having some of the most beautiful animal, fantasy, and sci-fi shirts I’ve seen, I have to say there is another reason I truly love The Mountain – they are eco-friendly. Each of their shirts are made using only environmentally friendly water-based inks and dyes, as well as being made from only 100% pre-shrunk cotton. While this may not sound like a big deal, their manufacturing process protects the Earth, air, and water. What I also love is that they are a US company, with all of their shirts created, developed, dyed, and printed in Marlborough, NH, and shipped from Keene, NH. Not only does this give them a very low carbon footprint, it makes sure they have a quick turn around and keeps jobs here in the United States. The Mountain products are also Oekotex 100% certified (one of the highest qualification worldwide). This means their shirts are free of chemicals that have been proven to be harmful to your body. To see their full line of shirts, make sure to head over to The Mountain website!

As well as having some of the most eco-friendly shirts out there, they are also proud to have the same values for their employees, giving them a fantastic work environment, including all artists receiving royalties on every shirt sold (unlike most companies that have one flat fee).  As you can see, they are a fantastic company and I’m proud that they will be sponsoring me during BlogPaws. You all know I only work with companies that I personally support, and honestly couldn’t be happier when they asked if we could work together.

Now, you guys can obviously see I’m a fan-girl, but what does this have to do with BlogPaws again? Well, last year they made the official BlogPaws Nashville t-shirt. As you can see from the picture below, it is a very fun shirt and captures the energy and heritage of Nashville, TN. Not only was the shirt adorable but super soft, making it a shirt that I still wear a year later.

This year, The Mountain is proud to be offering the official BlogPaws Phoenix t-shirt, designed by artist Mike Sanford. As a full time employee of the Mountain, he loves designing humorous and cute cat-themed tees – despite being allergic to cats – and has created some of the most hilarious and adorable shirts on their site, including:

  • Undercover Kittens“, a Miami Vice like themed shirts with cats
  • Cataclysm” a space themed shirts with “Catsronauts” defending the Earth
  • Green Irish Fairy Kittens” – Irish themed kitten shirt where kittens dream away the day on clouds & are powered by rainbows through the shamrock rain


Mike and his team at the Mountain can’t wait for everyone to see this year’s shirt. While it took many hours to create, they know everyone will love it when they see this year’s exclusive shirt! Later, we will be giving a teaser of the shirt so everyone can see it for themselves before the conference starts!

Right now, the only way to get this shirt is to get tickets to BlogPaws Phoenix, so make sure to get your tickets and don’t forget to also check out the BlogPaws event schedule. Those who aren’t bloggers or in the pet industry, don’t worry, we are going to give you an exclusive look of everything happening, as well as let you take a sneak peak at some of the newest and most innovative pet products out there at BlogPaws Phoenix!

    I have heard of the Mountain before just through social media but wasn’t aware that they had eco friendly tshirts. Makes me much more inclined to looking into them further.
