Green Fashion Monday: Upcycled Tees

Looptworkstee-sm On Fashion Monday, we highlight a hip, green fashion item. Got a stylish eco-friendly product to recommend? Tell us about it and look for it in an upcoming blog post.

Looking to bulk up your T-shirt collection? Check out these comfy ones from Looptworks, a company that pledges not to use any new material in its manufacturing process. Instead, it rescues excess material to produce its line of tees and other apparel, a process that's increasingly being called "upcycling." (The average textile factory produces 60,000 pounds of preconsumer waste per week!) Quantities of each print depend on the amount of fabric available, rendering each T-shirt a limited edition. $28.
