Live fully, with an awesome t-shirt

By Mir
August 6, 2008
Category Contests

In a perfect world, all of my clothes would be organic cotton. It’s comfy, it’s earth-friendly, and I am morally opposed to items which require dry-cleaning. The only problem is, well, you know how I am about spending. And organic costs more. I’m not saying it’s not worth it—it totally is—but let’s just say that right now my organic items are vastly outnumbered by my “ohmygosh you’ll never guess what a great deal I got on this!” items.

Anyway. I’ve recently decided I need one of everything from Tees For Change, purveyors of hip shirts that aren’t just made of organic cotton, they’re actually seriously sustainable: Every time you buy a shirt, they’ll plant a tree. See what I mean? I love them.

So here’s the deal: Tees For Change is having a big sale right now (up to 40% off), but they’re also giving away a Live Fully shirt to one lucky Want Not reader. Want to win it? Simply leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern (noon Pacific) on Friday, August 8th, 2008 for a chance to win. One comment per person, valid email address required, shaving of armpits is optional. (You’re welcome!) Winner to be determined by random number generation and environmental sustainability.

Good luck, and may the fiercest tree-hugger win!
