No, planting one tree at a time won't save the planet, but it's one more way for socially conscious tshirt designers to distinguish themselves from the pack. Tees for Change will plant a tree for every t-shirt or onesie purchased. Owner Andreea Ayers, created the store to promote happy, healthy minds and bodies, and to counter all of the negative thoughts around going green and alternative lifestyles. The tshirts have empowering messages like "Choose Happiness," "Live Fully " and "Today Matters" and come in bright, happy colors. Perfect for a yoga practice, or to provide a bright, contrast color as an undershirt. All t-shirts are either 100% organic cotton grown and manufactured in the US, or a 70%bamboo/30% organic cotton blend grown in Turkey, and come in five different styles. New designs come out in March and September, so keep your eyes peeled for the new styles coming soon. Tees For Change also sells jewelry and yoga mat bags, which are made from 70% recycled tshirt scraps.

The trees are planted by Trees For the Future for every t-shirt or onesie purchased, and Tees For a Change is also working with organizations like New Orleans Green Project, Trees for the Future, and Trees, Water & People. Trees for A Change planned to plant over 10 million trees in 2008 across Asia, Latin America and Africa.

Tees For Change tshirts retail for $32USD and long-sleeve shirts retail for $42USD. Thanks tipster, Rhonda. :Tees For Change
