A Tee With a Purpose

German-based sustainable clothing company, hessnatur, is a pioneer in environmentally responsible fashion, having been producing organic and natural clothing for 32 years. They are also committed to social causes and have teamed up with Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Muhammad Yunus, working together to improve social standards and living conditions in Bangladesh by implementing organic manufacturing processes within the city.

hessnatur is selling this limited edition organic tee ($20) designed by their Creative Director, Miguel Adrover to benefit The Grameen Foundation, founded by Dr. Yunus. The tees "will be made by Grameen Knitwear in Bangladesh. With every tee produced, hessnatur guarantees a 40% bonus over fair purchase price." 25% from the sale of each shirt will go to the organization's rural education project.

I've found the tee to be a great conversation starter. There's so much to say- from the simple, beautiful design of the shirt (I have received many compliments when wearing it) to the efforts it represents.

And now is your chance to win one! Comment to win one hessnatur organic women's tee from Pink Green Chick! There are 5 ways to enter, but only one of each entry method will be allowed per person for this contest:

  9. ...For transparency's sake, I blog for Hess Natur, so please leave me out of your t-shirt lottery...
    I just wanted to say how great it is to see our Tee getting this kind of attention in blogs like yours. This Tee is a glimpse into what hessnatur stands for, and was designed as a statement for sustainability. It's great to see the word get out!
