Selling clothing promoted by alternative energy?

    I invented a wave power generator that produces electricity from the motion of ocean waves. But I’m having a hard time raising funding as the government has significantly cut back on research grants. The crowd-funding site Kickstater suggested I offer T-shirts and similar items to raise money for my project.

     

    The question is will people really buy clothing from a label that is promoted by an alternative energy project?

     

    Does anyone here have experience selling to retailers? How do you think they would react to the idea?

     

    If anyone is interested I’m looking for partners.
