Wear Your Veggies!

I have been looking for some cute and comfy tees to wear now that the weather is warmer- so discovering this clothing company made my day! These tees are fashion for the food revolution and are basically for anyone who loves veggies, comfort and green businesses (ME!).

These tees are made out of a blend of organic cotton and bamboo, making them very soft, breathable, lightweight and produced in a sustainable way. Here are some cool facts.


  • is the fastest growing plant on Earth
  • produces more oxygen than trees
  • grows in most climates
  • needs very little water to grow

Organic Cotton:

  • grows on fields that have been chemical free for at least 3 years
  • by buying it you support clean air AND avoid supporting conventionally farmed cotton - which consumes 25% of the world's pesticide (2 BILLION pounds)

This company uses third party monitoring to make sure the shirts are made ethically and uses non-toxic inks for printing the designs. Seriously, I am obsessed! These tees remind me of working in a lush organic vegetable garden in Vermont. They also prove to be a good way to stay healthy - just looking down at your shirt will remind you to eat your veggies!

I got myself two of these tees on sale at the San Francisco Green Festival. If you prefer shopping in person for clothing, don't worry. Green Festival will happen this year in Chicago, Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, and again to San Francisco in November (this one will be even bigger!) Each Green Festival has it's own eco-fashion section, so you are sure to find great things wherever you go.

Check their website to browse their collection. They also have baby clothing!
