EcoSalon Favorites: 10 Eco-Friendly, Figure-Friendly Tees

-

T-shirts are the perennial wardrobe staple: they transcend season and trend. To help you navigate the ever-expanding world of eco-friendly tees, we’ve scouted out the territory for you.

The 10 shirts in this round-up are all sustainably manufactured and possess the three must-have qualities of anything worthy of calling itself a t-shirt: softness, comfort and durability.

  -The Sustainable Edition tee from American Apparel has the contoured comfort that screams "buy me in 20 different colors". Temptation might get the best of you; the organic jersey cotton shirts are available in up to 40 hues, depending on availability.

-

- It’s classic, it’s cotton, it’s conscious. The Lucy tee by under the canopy is a safe bet with a basic, modern fit.

-

- This Eco Heather  V-neck by Alternative Apparel is a blend of organic cotton, recycled polyester and natural rayon. Extra points for low-impact dyeing.

-Glo 4 Life offers a darling series of screen printed tees in 100% organic cotton. I couldn’t resist the ‘urban vermin’ series with its cute, minimalist pigeon. The tees are also available in blank solid colors.

-

-ONNO‘s bamboo tees feel like a mix of silk and cashmere and have the added benefit of naturally inhibiting odor.

-

-Edun Live’s "Eve" tee was inspired by none other than the first maternal (mitochondrial) ancestor of all humanity. The tees are 100% African cotton, and are part of Edun’s mission to create jobs in  developing villages.

-Jonano gives a sheer, sexy version of a v-neck tee. Ideal for layering and available in a pallet of mineral hues, these shirts are guaranteed to be manufactured without sweatshop labor.

-

-The Stewart & Brown Organic Pima Cotton Tee is perfect for those times you want an embellished version of a classic. The ribbing and detail are perfect to dress up jeans.

- For an ultra-feminine take on the tee, try the bamboo scoop neck by sameunderneath.

- I couldn’t resist this long-waisted, tissue knit organic cotton tee by Kate. Available in Poppy, Earth, Black and White, it just might become the new four-corners of my summer wardrobe.
