After many long months of research, testing and hard work, we are excited to announce the launch of a brand new Inhabitat T-shirt that is green in both color and in spirit! Our new Tree T-shirt is sage green with an elegant tree graphic printed across the bottom half of the shirt. The shirt is not just green in color, but is also as environmentally friendly as a T-shirt can get, with 100% US grown organic cotton and water-based eco-friendly inks (unlike the plastic ‘plastisol’ which most screen-printed T-shirts use).

Our new Inhabitat T-shirts are super soft, hand-printed in California, and come in men’s and women’s cuts. We have a limited edition of these hand-printed green shirts, so if you want one, better act fast!

    Thanks for understanding Gurv-

    Believe me we would LOVE to cut our costs and get our prices down on these so that we can sell more of these and make a profit. But until economies of scale kick in and there are more people out there making organic cotton shirts, and printing with water-based inks, the costs will remain high.

    Jill — Thank you for the response. The price is much easier to understand with an explanation like that. And as I said before (and meant), the shirt is beautiful in design and style. Certainly one of the better looking shirts out there.

    Hi Gurv-

    We get these type of comments a lot, so I would like to try to address this issue. You need to understand that when you spend $10 on a T-shirt at Walmart or Target – the reason that that T-shirt is so cheap is because it is produced by sweatshirt labor in China, using the cheapest and lowest quality materials, under unregulated conditions. The cotton is not organic, nor is it grown in America, the pieces are mass produced using toxic inks.

    If you try to use the highest level of quality in a T-shirt such as we have: using organic, American grown cotton – using garments produced in America, and printed by hand in a small shop, using eco-friendly dyes in San Francisco, the costs are very high. It actually costs us about $30 per piece to produce these shirts, the extra $5 is for shipping.

    We are making no profit off of these shirts, and honestly $35 is not that ridiculous for a handmade T-shirt. You get what you pay for.

    -Jill

    Beautiful shirt. Unfortunately another “sustainable” product that is luxury priced and out of the reasonable financial reach of those of us that still live in this world.
