Hessnatur, the world’s largest organic apparel company, and Discovery Channel’s Planet Green have just announced the sale of the “One Life” tee shirt, winner of The Eco-Tee Design Challenge held last fall. Hundreds of people entered the competition and one lucky winner was chosen to have their design appear on hessnatur’s 100% organic tee shirt, to be sold worldwide to benefit a great cause! The contest was judged by Blake Mycoskie (Founder of TOMS Shoes), Miranda Purves (Lifestyle Editor of ELLE), Summer Rayne Oakes (Eco-Model), and Miguel Adrover (CFDA award winner and Creative Director of hessnatur).
The winner, Lindsay Seligman, a young California artist and designer, created a simple and eloquent design: a single line that depicts a bird, cat, fish, butterfly, frog and human face, all connected with the words “One Life.”
The 100% organic cotton tee is produced by Grameen Knitwear, a non-profit organization in Dhaka, Bangladesh dedicated to improving the health and working standards of textile workers. Grameen Knitwear is an affiliate of the Grameen Bankfounded by 2006 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dr. Muhammad Yunus. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the tee shirt go back to Grameen Shikkha project, whose mission is to eradicate poverty through educational scholarships.
