Sustainable Tees on a Mission

I had the great pleasure of winning a giveaway from Tees for Change, and my prize arrived in the mail this past weekend!  I had only just discovered them when I entered the giveaway.  Now that I have had the opportunity to try their products and learn more about their mission, I love them!

Tees for Change is build on the idea that "what you wear can make a difference. [Their] line of stylish, earth friendly tees lets you look good, feel good and do good!"  The shirts, which display positive messages, are made from a fabric blend of 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton.  Bamboo is incredibly sustainable, and the organic cotton is grown and harvest in a responsible way.  The shirts are also produced under fair trade and sweatshop-free conditions.  To top it all off, they plant a tree for every shirt purchased! 

My winnings: 2 shirts and a tote

The very first thing I noticed even just from pulling the shirts out of the package was how soft they were.  When I tried them on, they were easily the most comfortable shirts I had ever put on.  They are lightweight, breath well, and slightly form fitting.  These will definitely become "go-to" shirts for me.  Plus, I love the positive reminders every time I see myself in the mirror.

Tees for Change has many different styles of shirts, tote bags, jewelry, journals, and fun books as well.  You may think this is lame, but Brad and I are actually buying the The Couple's Love Quiz Book for a Christmas present to each other.  I encourage you to check out their site, store, blog, and support such a fantastic organization!
