Lichens are composite organisms that arise from algae or cyanobacteria living among filaments of multiple fungi species in a mutualistic relationship. Lichens are important actors in nutrient cycling  and act as the producers for which a wide variety of higher trophic feeders feed off of, such as elk, reindeer, gastropods, nematodes, mites, and springtails. Lichens have properties different from those of their component organisms. They come in many colors, sizes, and forms and are sometimes plant-like, but are not plants.

Lichens absorb everything in their atmosphere, especially pollutants. Any heavy metals or carbon or sulfur or other pollutants in the atmosphere are absorbed into the lichen thallus. Scientists can extract these toxins and determine the levels that are present in our atmosphere.

By wearing our Lichen Tee, you're not only showcasing your love for nature, but you're also inspiring others to appreciate and protect our natural resources. Lichens are important indicators of air quality, and the presence of lichen on rocks is a sign of healthy ecosystems. The rugged mountain boulder represents the strength and resilience of nature.
