STEMpunk Merchandise 
STEMpunk Merch
To support the podcast we've decided to sell some podcast merchandise...With a difference.

It takes 2,700 litres of water to make one t-shirt, so instead of making more things, we've re-used them. Our items are bought in an op-shop, then we write "STEMpunk" on it with a permanent marker.

Due to the fact that these items are second hand, they will not be "perfect" but they certainly are unique!

Head over to our STEMpunkPod Etsy store to get our merchandise.
