BE HIPPY is a movement that was created to motivate everyone to live their most adventurous and blissful life. Whether it’s experiencing a beautiful sunrise over some mountains, taking off from work to sky a powder day, or finding solitude fishing on a great river. Be Hippy hopes to encourage people to join the tribe and live the life they love!
Peace. Love Be Hippy!
For Bart O’Brien and Leigh Pearson, co-founders of Be Hippy, it all started with a hat and their love for Colorado. They had an idea, not for a brand, but for a lifestyle, a mantra: Be Hippy. “We look at the world a little differently. Life is short, so why not do what makes you happy?” says O’Brien. The mantra, a play on “Be Happy”, fit their love for music festivals, the outdoors and wanting to make a positive impact in the world. The first product under the Be Hippy brand was a trucker hat with a gray and white Be Hippy mountain logo, and a Colorado flag on the side. “We thought it was cute, and we shared it with friends and wore it to several music festivals. We had no idea that it would catch on the way it did,” says Pearson. The Be Hippy hat and mantra spread through friends and Facebook, quickly gaining a following at music festivals in Colorado and across the country. When asked who the Be Hippy customer is, O’Brien answered, “We want people looking to do what makes them happy and makes them want to continue to live life to the fullest. They can love music festivals like us, or extreme sports, paddle boarding, hiking, anything. Be Hippy products reflect a state of mind and not any one particular activity.”
