This 100% recycled T-shirt is made from 4.8 plastic bottles and .26 pounds of fabric scrap, and saves 63 gallons of water compared to a conventional cotton T-shirt. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing. Original artwork by Roger Peet of the artist/activist collective Just Seeds.
The Defend The Earth Responsibili-Tee® brings together two things Patagonia love: art and activism. The tee is made from a comfortable 50/50 blend of recycled cotton/postconsumer recycled polyester fabric that reduces their need for petroleum to make raw materials, and cuts landfill and incinerator waste. Original artwork by Roger Peet (of the artist/activist collective Just Seeds) is screen-printed using PVC- and phthalate-free inks. Taped shoulder seams for comfort and fit retention. Fair Trade Certified™ sewing.
