SAVED T-Shirt Giveaway

Thursday, December 16, 2010

Award-winning environmental group Do The Green Thing, have just launched a new anti-waist campaign, recycling t-shirts under a new sustainable initiative 'Saved'

Ellie modelling Saved

"We all have unwanted and unloved T-shirts sitting in the back of our cupboard. T-shirts of bands we used to love and no longer do, a dreary corporate T-shirt forced on us at a dreary corporate event, T-shirts that stayed the same size while we grew a size or two.

Saved is a new sustainable product and anti-waste campaign that takes unwanted or unloved T-shirts, washes them, hand-stitches Saved lettering onto them, adds a Saved story, saved from bad taste, saved from disrepair, saved from neglect and in doing so, makes each T-shirt a bit more fashionable and a lot more desirable."

I am very excited to announce a giveaway courtesy of Green Thing. I have two Saved t-shirts, one male (a Tommy Hilfiger t-shirt in a former life, size L) and one female (Fruit of the Loom t-shirt in a former life, size M), to giveaway to two Recycled Fashion blog readers.

"We live in a throw away culture and so many things like T-shirts could be rescued, reimagined and Saved. Marina and the Diamonds, Imogen Heap, VV Brown, Professor Green and Zandra Rhodes agree and have all donated their very own T-shirts to be Saved.

We're adding these to our shop so anyone who buys a T-shirt could end up with the bonus of a special pop star Saved T. It's a bit like the famous 'golden ticket' in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - except, um, with T-shirts instead of chocolate ;-) For launch a few lucky folk will end up with some of Imogen Heap’s fabulous Saved t-shirts."

How to enter, tell us which T-shirt you would like, and do one or more of the following:

1. Leave a comment below
2. Follow dothegreen thing on facebook and leave a comment
Follow RecycledFashion on facebook and leave a comment
4. Follow dothegreenthing on twitter
5. Follow RecycledFashion on
twitter and retweet the giveaway

Each activity above counts for one entry into the competition. The more you do, the more chances you have to win the competition.

If you have a T-shirt you would like to send in to be saved from disregard, or you would like to purchase a Saved T-shirt yourself, you can find out more information about the initiative on Saved's
facebook page, or the Saved web homepage.

National and international readers are all welcome to participate in the competition.
Winners will be contacted 1st January 2011.

Best idea and best giveaway. I love it! Am even going to repost it.

I love the whole concept behind this! I try my best to give everything a second life but hopefully you won't see me on the next episode of 'Hoarders'. I'd go for the male/large as there is no way 'the girls' are gonna fit in a medium. :-)

Becca said...

This is SUCH a great idea! And the applique is lovely. I'd go for the medium :)

Sarah M said...

This is a great idea. I'm sure I have a t-shirt or two that is piled at the bottom of the drawer. I'd go for the medium sized one.

Oh this is such an awesome idea!!! I recycle all our clothes, either by giving them to friends or the local op shop. With the boys tees that they love so much but are worn I've been removing appliques to sew onto new tees, I'm buying myself a sewing machine (yippee) and would love to make some patchwork skirts for me and shorts for the boys out of our old and worn clothes

Katie said...

Fabo idea. Hope it catches on. I'd like the black one (regardless of size!).

Chrissy said...
