I recently got my hands on some ONNO tees made from earth friendly hemp and bamboo and I love them. Nothing is better than a comfortable well fitting tee and ONNO has tees for both men and women in two styles that fit like a dream! I love how soft the hemp tees are and the bamboo tees have this cool texture that I love even more!
Tee shirts are not just for lazing around the house though! In fact you can dress up a tee for work, play, or a night on the town! Just consider what you wear with the tee (styling), such as going big and bold with a statement necklace. Wearing a cardigan can dress up a tee too. Or just wear your tee with some super cute sandals. Of course having a handsome man by your side can sure decorate up a great tee, especially if he is wearing a great tee too!
ONNO’s Carbon Offset Program:We move raw materials and finished product all over the globe. This is bad because carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels (from boats, trains, and trucks) is polluting and changing the Earth’s climate.
To balance the harm we’re doing by moving materials from here to there, we purchase carbon offsets from www.carbonfund.org. We chose CarbonFund because they are a non-profit, and they are third party audited. CarbonFund can offset one metric ton of carbon dioxide for $10.00. This is a good price. We like and recommend the CarbonFund.
Basics About the Bamboo Tees:
70% viscose from organic bamboo, 30% organic cotton. Great fit. Softer than your softest cotton shirt. People are going to touch you. Made from the fastest growing plant on earth. You’ll like these shirts.
Problems with conventional cotton:
Okay, we like a soft cotton shirt too. But growing conventional cotton is particularly rough on the environment. Cotton is the largest crop behind corn in the United States and consumes 10% of the world’s pesticides (that’s two billion pounds) and 25% of the world’s insecticides (we don’t know what that weighs but it’s a lot). Cotton growers typically use many hazardous chemicals including aldicarb, phorate, methamidophos and endosulfan. There are at least 20 types of organophosphate and carbamate pesticides, many of which were originally developed as toxic nerve agents during World War II. These chemicals harm people, wildlife and the environment. In addition, conventional cotton requires a tremendous amount of water to grow: 106,000 cubic feet of water per acre. That’s a lot of water. Can you see why we can’t get excited about using conventional cotton? To read more about the problems with conventional cotton, click here.
