Our vibrant GOTS certified 100% organic cotton, unisex Seventy-One Percent tee is a tee with a purpose! Seventy-One Percent is the official name and tee of our water cleanup initiative, a nod to the fact that 71% of the earth’s surface is water (and 96.5% of that is held by oceans). Water is life, and we can’t survive without it. It’s up to each of us to do our part to keep our waters clean and healthy, by picking up trash, being mindful of what is dumped into sewers and drains (everything runs downhill), and preserving shorelines and habitats so our aquatic friends can thrive. This tee is also a way to share your love of the oceans, and the importance of protecting them!
*This tee will experience some shrinkage but that is allowed for in the cut of the shirt, so you can feel comfortable ordering your regular size.
This tee is a conversation starter, and that means a good opportunity to remind people of the importance of thoughtful stewardship of our oceans, lakes and rivers. is We knew when we started Barefoot Eco Outfitters that we wanted to not only support local conservation organizations, but also be very hands-on ourselves. We started out volunteering for beach cleanups in our state, but those were sporadic and we were always the last ones back to join the group as there was still so much more trash to collect. We realized that we didn’t need a specific day to pick up trash, that we could do it on our own at any time, so Seventy-One Percent was born!
