Earth Day is this Sunday (well, we should celebrate Earth every day, but you know what I mean), and whether you're doing your part by composting meal scraps, recycling, or practicing other planet-friendly habits, we've found one more thing that you should do to honor your planet. And it involves a group of really talented artists.
As a park appreciator, seasons enthusiast, and ocean devotee, it breaks my heart that our beautiful planet home is suffering and crying out for help while there are so many powerful people who still deny climate change. For Earth Day, online thrift store @thredUP asked me to redesign used t-shirts reacting to climate change denial, with 100% of the net proceeds going toward carbon offset non-profit Cool Effect. Each tee purchased results in a carbon reduction equivalent to planting 95 trees that live for 10 years ❤️ Visit thredup.com/remade to shop! projectremade #secondhandfirst #partner
You may know thredUP as a company that allows you to donate and recycle old clothing as well as shop others' secondhand items. For Earth Day, thredUP launched "Project Remade" to emphasize the importance of sustainable fashion. They enlisted several modern artists to respond to the statement: "Climate change isn't real." The result? Twelve unique designs, printed on recycled white t-shirts. These affordable tees are limited edition, and we're sure they'll sell fast.
The artwork ranges from humorous cartoons (see: Gemma Correll's "No More Mr. Ice Guy") to simple and geometric (like the block lettering from Tessa Forrest, aka @subliming.jpg).
Are you concerned about climate change? I sure am! 🌏 So when @thredup asked me to redesign used t-shirts for earth day, Inspired by the phrase "Climate Change is not Real", I wanted to create something that expressed my feelings in a funny(ish...) way. 🌏 100% of the net proceeds go towards carbon offset non-profit Cool Effect. Each tee purchased results in a carbon reduction equivalent to planting 95 trees that live for 10 years! 🌏 repost and tag #projectremade and an extra $1 will be donated to @cooleffect_ 🌏 Link to buy in my bio 🔝

"From a New Yorker cartoonist to a millennial meme creator, the artists we chose for this project are some of the most inspiring and influential of our generation," thredUP says of the project. "By printing designs on secondhand shirts instead of producing new materials, shoppers reduce their carbon, waste and water footprints by 73% per shirt." Net proceeds from these shirts benefit the non-profit Cool Effect, which helps fund carbon reduction projects all over the world.
ThredUP has such a large inventory of clothing that they're able to print these designs on multiple different shirt styles and at multiple sizes. You're sure to find not only a design that inspires you, but also a shirt that's the perfect fit!
