Shocked by the true face of clothing production, Niklas decided to undertake something on his own and founded in 2012, just after graduating from high school, still living in a small countryside-village, the label "GREEN SHIRTS". A long time he struggled as a "one-man business"- until 2013, a team gathered around him. His vision: Ecological and social standards in whole clothing industries. Besides he successfully completed the '2013th Pioneers of Change Training Course' about strengthening future's innovations of change. Currently he began to study "Social and Cultural Anthropology" for deepening his social & cultural understanding and widening his horizon.
