T-shirts are awesome. Every girl needs a good basic t-shirt. But beyond being a good wardrobe staple, t-shirts can also make a difference - in multiple ways!
- T-shirts made in factories where workers are given safe conditions and fair wages make a difference.
- T-shirts made from ingredients that are safer for the planet and your health, such as organic cotton - make a difference.
- And the sale of a t-shirt can also advocate for change through a good give-back model.
When we first heard about Live the Give, the company was focused on using t-shirts to raise funding for childhood education made eco-consciously in factories certified safe, lawful, humane, and ethical, which are both awesome!
Founded by a former elementary school teacher, Live the Give is on a mission to equip every child around the world with a quality education. Global education has a clear and direct impact on a child’s future salary, and each dollar spent on a child’s education yields roughly $10 to $15 of higher earnings over the child’s lifetime. Children who finish primary school are more likely to break the cycle of poverty within their generation. Yet, according to UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) data, approximately 263 million children and youth are out of school. Of the 25 million children who will never learn to read or write in primary school, 15 million are girls.
That's why Live the Give donates a portion of each purchase to global childhood education initiatives.
Since then Live the Give has continued to grow and expand its impact, which is incredible. Today, you can find organic and eco-fabrics in the shop in unique styles and far more than just t-shirts. There's everything from yoga pants and bras to cute, flowy organic dresses. The best part, is the new pieces take fun modern twists on wardrobe basics. There's nothing basic about them.
So if you're in need of some staple items in the perfect basic colors for your wardrobe (or if you're dabbling with a capsule wardrobe), that a look at what Live the Give has to offer! The pieces are all easy to dress up or dress down!
