In what can only be described as a quite frankly bizarre band merchandise decision, you can now get your hands on organic Grateful Dead deodorant.
Arriving in time for Father’s Day, management of the iconic band has teamed up with North Coast Organics for a series targeting Deadheads all over the world.
“I have been a Dead Head since 1999,” says North Coast Organics founder and CEO Nathan Morin, via Stereogum. “The music and spirit of the Grateful Dead have influenced my company’s core principles of service, veganism, and organic agriculture. The Grateful Dead have inspired us to stay true to our main mission of social responsibility. We took care in creating special essential oil blends that reference the Grateful Dead’s music.”
“Along with our love of the music, Dead Heads also often identify themselves as socially and environmentally conscious, and with that awareness is a love of the world around us, and the desire to help protect it,” Grateful Dead’s legacy manager and archivist David Lemieux said.
“That goes for ourselves as well. As much as it’s important to be mindful of what we put into our bodies, it’s also essential to be aware of what we put onto our bodies. We’re so happy that a company like North Coast Organics exists, as they share our love of organic, healthful products for the body. Ethical and kind, North Coast Organics lives and functions as we do, with an awareness that the future’s here, we are it, and we need to take care of the planet and ourselves.”
The special collaboration will see the release of five different organic which includes ‘Skull & Roses’, ‘Sunshine’, ‘Workingman’s’ and more.
