Fair Wear

Buying t-shirts and other clothing made in sweatshops is just plain stupid. That's why I try to feature only clothing sold by stores who engage in responsible purchasing and manufacturing. Fair Wear is a tiny shop that offers a small (but growing!) selection of fair trade t-shirts like the Treehugger Tee shown here. What does fair trade mean? Fair Wear charges a bit more and passes the profits directly on to the workers who make the clothing in Bangladesh, helping bring their wages up to a decent level. Any other profits beyond that level are used to support various social and ecological aid programs in Bangladesh, which helps raise the standard of living for everyone there. So buying this ultra-cute tee won't just look good, it'll feel good too. $18 USD. (Thanks, Sarah!)
