Wear your heart on your sleeve.
With individually hand-numbered organic cotton tees from We Add Up www.weaddup.com, we can spread the messages of the natural and organic movement. Let others know how you’re taking better care of yourself and the planet with ideals such as “Eat Less Meat”, “Line Dry”, “Unplug” and more on We Add Up tees. Each tee has a unique number which is hand-painted onto the tee – that’s how many have “added up” so far! Wouldn’t it be exciting to wear your tee and, one day, see someone with a much bigger number? It’s a great way for eco-friendly folks to encourage each other and remind ourselves of the choices we make every day.
