Vegan Sale and Vegan Purchase: Edun Live

Edun Live, the companion site of Edun, is holding a sale now through August 31: 50% off all blank t-shirts (including long-sleeve . . . perfect for the upcoming fall and winter seasons). Edun Live makes t-shirts that support sustainable economic development: they employ people in Africa who might otherwise be unemployed, meaning the shirts are made in Africa by Africans. The shirts are high-quality: if you can get away with wearing a nice cotton t-shirt underneath work suits, these are perfect.

I purchased the organic t-shirt for women in deep purple (pictured) and super maroon. Each originally were $25, and I got each for $12 on sale. Thinking of the impending colder weather, I also purchased the long-sleeve crew-neck tee (for women) in classic navy (also pictured). It originally was $28, and I got it for $14.

Find the organic t-shirt here (available in many more colors), the long-sleeve tee here (available also in forest green), and all the blank t-shirts for women and men here.
