Upperatus is spreading awareness and raising donations, for a different non-profit each month, through the sale of their designed charity t-shirts. Each months’ design is only available that month, so get your November shirt while you can! This month, they are working with environmental non-profit, Heal the Bay. Each shirt you buy will directly donate $11 to Heal the Bay to help them do their thing – preserving beaches from runoff and pollution, protecting wildlife and running the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium (to name a few).
Classical singer, Nathan Pacheco, is their celebrity supporter for November, endorsing the campaign and helping share the message. They found an awesome LA-based artist in Dan McCauley. Dan is really laid back normally, but he’s extremely passionate about his art, and put together a really vivid design that captures the essence of Heal the Bay.
All their shirts are made 100% in the USA, sweatshops-free This month, their Women’s Wide V-Neck Tee and Men’s Crew Neck Tee are both made with 100% Organic Cotton, which are treated with low-impact dyes that use reclaimed water. Their designs use water-based inks and are PVC-free. Even at the end of the process they stay eco-friendly by using completely biodegradable and compostable shipping bags, and not including invoices to reduce the need for paper.
Needless to say, they put a lot of time and effort into this, so be sure to check them out at http://upperatus.com, and add them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/upperatus.
Andy: Thanks a lot for the submission!
