Why: Remember that episode of Seinfeld where Jerry pays homage to his one go-to t-shirt, "Golden Boy"? I'll admit that I share Jerry's philosophy and am a one-tee kind of woman: once I've found one that's cozy, roomy and broken in, I'll wear it 'til it falls apart at the seams. My new tee obsession — the Tees For Change cap sleeve — makes me feel a little less guilty about this little habit, and in fact, I'm helping to do my part for the environment by dedicating myself to the brand.
All of Tees For Change's shirts are fair trade and made in sweatshop-free conditions (that's one Eco-Chic bonus point) and made from either 100 percent organic cotton or a bamboo/organic cotton blend (another point). Don't let your idea of bamboo fool you; these shirts are light, soft and perfect for your yoga class, workout, afternoon nap, errand running…basically anywhere you plan on wearing a shirt.
Plus — still wracking up the points here — Tees For Change has partnered with American Forests' Global ReLeaf program to plant a tree for every shirt sold. With that in mind, the whimsical messages printed on the tees ("choose happiness," "live beautifully," "today matters") become doubly meaningful and inspirational. When one article of clothing can make you feel comfortable, beautiful, and powerful all at once, there's no reason not to become a devotee.
Price: Short sleeve styles are $28, and long sleeve styles are $38
