T-Shirts Online for a Cause - The Ethical Side of T-Shirts

T-shirts are not only an attractive, versatile item of clothing; they can also be a tool for benefiting others. Selling t-shirts online has long been connected with charitable organisations as a means of direct promotion but with a number of new initiatives being implemented through well-known websites, the philanthropic reach of t-shirts online has significantly widened. Not only can you look great, you can also help to give back to society at the same time! There are a number of ways that buying t-shirts can be a vehicle for positive change and help to promote a more ethical society.

Promotion of charitable organisations

The simplest way t-shirts can help charities is by providing cheap advertising. Wearing a t-shirt with the name of your favourite charity on it can help to get the charity's message out there and increase awareness across a wider section of the population. Many charities are aware of this and even provide t-shirts online and in person, for free or for a very small donation, as a way of increasing public awareness of their cause.
