Nothing says comfort like a casual tee-shirt, and when the tee has a message to spread, it gives it some edge. But when its combined with sustainable practices? It makes the item that much better.
This is exactly what is spread by Tees for Change, a tee-shirt company with a mission to inspire others through their three “P” principle: passion, purpose and positivity. They feel that a combination of mindfulness and loving kindness can enhance your body, mind, and spirit – and we agree.
Tees for Change‘s designs each spread the word about living this kind of life, with messages sch as “chase dreams”, “live courageously”, “see balance”, “today matters”, and more. With options for women, men, and baby, there’s literally something for everyone, all passion-driven, spreading the word about looking, feeling, and doing good.
Founder Andreea Ayers began Tees for Change in 2007. Prompted by negative responses from friends and strangers regarding her upcoming home birth, she created a tee for herself with “Be Courageous”, that she wore during the home delivery. Soon after, her business was born, based around her belief in positive thinking and spreading the sustainable word.
We’ve had the opportunity to review “Choose Happiness”, in a vibrant cherry red that can’t help but make you smile.
The 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton tee is made in fair-trade and sweatshop-free conditions. Organic cotton, which we emphasize for its high sustainability, is grown without pesticides and fertilizers – whereas the conventional form is one of the highest contaminated crops available. Bamboo, like we often mention, is renewable, fast-growing, and naturally pesticide free. It’s also 100% biodegradable, and hypoallergenic.
This combination allows for a luxuriously soft shirt that you can’t wait to wrap yourself in. The capped, unfinished sleeves give a flirty finish, and the lightweight material delivers a flattering fit on any body type. The comfort is unbelievable, making you wonder why the rest of your wardrobe isn’t outfitted in the whole line of message-sending shirts.
We always highlight when companies take a step further towards eco-friendliness, and Tees for Change is no exception. They’ve partnered with Trees for the Future to plant a tree for each and every tee-shirt or onesie that you purchase. This provides new life in Asia, Latin America and Africa. they’ve previously connected with other organizations, among them the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Global ReLeaf, and the Human Rights Tour.
We undoubtedly have decided that their tees offer ultimate comfort with a message you’ll want to follow. Definitely check out all of their goods at their website, teesforchange.com.
