6 ways to Green Your T-shirt
Whether it's a minimal black V-neck or a well-worn memento picked up during a musical concert, the T-shirt isn't just a ubiquitous clothing staple but a manifestation of one's persona. Even so, a single cotton T (no matter how character revealing) can take its toll on the environment. The good news is that increasingly green choices can be made.
Wear your eco-conscientious heart on your tag and not on your sleeve with organic cotton T-shirts, an alternative to T's made from cotton that's been doused with chemicals.
Although the fabric used in your favorite T-shirt may be all natural, its eye-catching canary yellow coloring may be anything but.
T-shirts made from fibers such as bamboo, hemp, and soy are both sustainable and stylish, requiring much less water, fewer chemicals, and minimal land space, too.
After cleaning out your closet or drawers, the garbage bin doesn't have to be your old T-shirt's next home—there are multiple ways to breathe new life into a musty old T.
Whether scored at a vintage, upscale consignment shop or run-of-the-mill thrift store, sporting second-hand styles is both a bold fashion statement and an act of eco-aware consumerism.
Although you may not have use for it any more, an old T-shirt can be given to a charitable organization where it will be resold, donated, or recycled into new fabric.
