Sharing my favourite ethical and eco t-shirt: Planet Boab GIVEAWAY

I’m finding it relatively easy to be green when it comes to clothing. I’ve (more or less) stuck to the ethical clothing pledge for the past year and a half; buy mostly pre-loved; and have managed to whittle my wardrobe down to no more than eight of anything. No more than eight shirts, eight t-shirts, and so on (I know, I said I’d do six, but I’m not quiet there, yet).

But there’s one annual purchase of ‘new’ that I can’t live without. I have to have at least one new t-shirt each Summer. Thankfully, I don’t have to break the ethical clothing pledge to buy one. There’s plenty of ethical companies out there making t-shirts from environmentally friendly materials.  Trust me, I’ve tried my fair share.

Unfortunately, I’ve mostly been disappointed. One of my pet hates is throwaway clothing. Clothing should last more than a season. So I’m not fond of t-shirts with fabric so thin that they last only a few washes, or that lose their shape after only one season. Organic cotton still comes with an ecological cost, albeit less than conventionally grown cotton, so if I buy a new t-shirt, I want it to last. Thankfully I discovered Planet Boab t-shirts.


Planet Boab hand-printed organic cotton t-shirts

I bought a Planet Boab t-shirt around eight months ago. Their t-shirts well and truly pass the ethical clothing pledge requirements. They're made here in Australia in a sweatshop free factory from 100% certified organic cotton.

I was drawn in by their quirky hand printed designs, and being a lover of anything to do with native plants, I couldn’t resist their Kangaroo Grass t-shirt. Recognise it? I love this top so much that it was one of my six for the six item or less challenge. I've worn this top at least once a week (and often more) for the past eight months and it's still in great condition.

The Giveaway

I was so happy with my t-shirt that I contacted Planet Boab to say thank you. Being more than happy to share my love for Planet Boab tees, I cheekily asked if they were interested in doing a giveaway here at Little eco footprints. They generously agreed! Yay!
