People love to talk about the things they are passionate about and those who have adopted a green lifestyle are no different. If you are passionate about global warming, recycling or even animal rights, there is no better way to advertise your love than with a great printed T-shirt. Printed tees can show the world what you care about, whether the statement is subtle or in-your-face. Here are some great green causes worth standing for:
Like with any great logo, the three-arrowed triangle is instantly recognized by all who see it as the symbol for recycling. Recycling, in essence, is the breaking down and transformation of materials into new products. Rather than filling landfills with unnecessary “junk,” more people have turned to recycling and up-cycling. If you’re one of these people, let the world know! See this article for a great breakdown of what the “recycle numbers” really mean:http://www.howtolearn.com/2012/02/how-recycling-numbers-on-plastic-containers-affect-us
2. Water Conservation
Water conservation is a cause that many people undertake, but few understand why. Many countries on our planet have had to resort to having water piped or shipped in from bordering countries. This borrowing of water occurs because the receiving country has next to no water that is fit for human consumption. If you are conserving water and know why, throw on a printed T-shirt and spark a conversation. You may just have the opportunity to educate someone and turn them into a fellow conservationist.
3. Automobile Emissions
Have you recently become a full-time pedestrian or cyclist? Or perhaps you have ditched your car in favor of public transportation? In doing so, you will have saved tons of emissions from being released into the atmosphere in your lifetime. Cars that run emit no toxins are expensive and few; making them unattainable for many. As such, hundreds of people have traded their gas-hogging, toxin spewing vehicles for a pair of sneakers. If you’re one of the multitudes, throw on your T-shirt and walk proudly to your destination. You never know who may stop you and ask about your shirt on the way.
4. Animal Rights
Whether you have taken a stance against animal testing, puppy mills, circus animals or even habitat destruction, tell people what you know. There are animals on this planet that are being threatened, tortured and killed every day — thanks to the selfish nature of mankind. Through habitat destruction, we are virtually ensuring that certain species will never be known to our grandchildren. Animals of all types play an important part in our environment; their very survival depends on the actions, or in-actions, of humans. Show the public that you mean business; wear a printed T-shirt in support of your favorite animal rights campaign.
There is no better way to make a great, stylish impression and share your opinions than with a printed T-shirt. Tell the world that you are passionate about environmental causes with a graphic tee. You may be surprised at the conversations your clothing can spark!
