There is a new long sleeve tee from Econscious on the market. And it is really, really nice.

The EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve is available in 3 color options and sizes, S- XXL. The material for the EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve is a 4.25oz 60% organic cotton ring-spun jersey material, with a 40% blend of recycled polyester.

These are the same quality shirts that Econsciuos is selling in their retail line, and part of the 1% For The Planet initiative at Econsciuos, see https://www.econscious.net/pages/sustainability. The shirts have a great drape, and a retail look to them.

However, as covered in the FAQ page at the Econsciuos website, these shirts are not manufactured in the USA, and in their defense, it is really hard to locate affordable, recycled content tees, that are made in the USA.

Other than their materials, the EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve is your basic long-sleeve tee (ok, they are a lot nicer than an average tee shirt), and by that I mean we can imprint the tees locally, with any art or logo necessary for your brand or business.

I think the extra cost of a sustainable tee is only really worthwhile, if the fact that the tee is made from sustainability sourced materials directly ties to the brand message your business or organization is seeking to promote. If you are teaching or preaching sustainability via your brand, it is good to look the part.

If you are interested in the EC1588 econscious Men’s Sueded Jersey Long Sleeve to promote own business, or to get a sample, email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy, 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable if possible.
