t-shirt

Do I need another ____ ?  

When we set out to create a t-shirt to promote the Environmental Sustainability Program at Philadelphia University, we strove to minimize our ecological footprint and provoke a dialogue. The result is a collegiate t-shirt made from 50% recycled polyethylene teraphthalate (PETE), the plastic in water bottles, that has been dyed with (insert details) and screen with (insert details) ink.

Even though we tried to minimize the impact of this t-shirt, we knew that there was a deeper question: how many of us really needed another t-shirt. This thought confronted us with a conundrum: should we avoid creating t-shirt altogether, or should we dedicate our t-shirt to provoking a conversation about how and how much we consume.
