When I heard about Designed Good (see their story below), I thought they were a perfect fit for Eco Chick and that our stylish, savvy, smart readers would really resonate with their story. So you can check out how awesome their clothes are, they are giving away two tees! Enter in the comments below, by telling us what you like about these recent grad’s project. (And be sure to like Eco Chick and Designed Good on Facebook!)
From co-founder Katy Gathright:
“After my amazing co-founder Imran Khoja and I graduated from Williams College this year, we launched Designed Good with our amazing co-founder. We founded Designed Good as a community where people could find products that meet both their style DNA and their social values and aspirations.
We’re interested in finding that key intersection between design and social good – largely because we believe that products that are designed intentionally have this great potential for solving social challenges. Every week, we pair new products with stories about how they are making a difference, talking about why the product is cause-driven.
For instance, this World Map Tee was designed and printed in Canada by PLB Designs. We featured these shirts as one of our first products after getting to know the designer behind them, Pier-Luk Bouthillier, a graphic designer in Montreal who is inspired by nature and environmental movements – if you look closely, the world map is made of tiny recycling icons. He also uses eco-friendly water based inks and American Apparel shirts for all of his designs. We interview all the brands we work with personally, and PLB was definitely one of our favorites!”
DEETS: You can win the two t-shirts shown on this page (the women’s world map tee AND the blue Designed Good t-shirt) by entering in the comments below why you think this project is so cool. We’ll randomly select a winner from entries made between 11am EST on Friday, October 12, 2012 to midnight EST on Thursday, October 18th. Good luck!
