Fair trade t-shirts
Ethical, fashionable and funky fair trade t-shirts to suit every taste! Made without using child labour or sweat shops. Materials used include hemp, bamboo and organic cotton – pesticide free and without harming the planet or involving exploitation.
Did you know? Conventionally grown cotton is the second most pesticide-laden crop in the world? It takes approximately 150g of chemicals to grow enough cotton to make just one t-shirt. Organic cotton, on the other hand, is grown in certified pesticide-free and herbicide-free soil, using organic farming methods, which produce healthier fabrics, preserve the quality of our water and prevent toxins from entering the human food chain in the form of cottonseed and other byproducts.
Fair trade t-shirts are worn by an increasing number of celebrities and are becoming more mainstream.
“When some high-sounding institute states that a compound is harmless or a process free of risk, it is wise to know whence the institute or the scientists who work there obtain their financial support.” – Lancet, editorial on the “medical-industrial complex,” 1973
