9 Ethical Classic White Tees Under $50

Now that summer is on full swing, you can't walk past a fast fashion store without seeing massive SALE signs hawking their apparel at unbelievable prices. But as some of you may know by now, fast fashion isn't really cheap, because someone somewhere is paying for it.

Two years ago the Fashion Revolution crew placed a vending machine in Alexanderplatz in Berlin offering T-shirts for 2 Euros. People had to decide if they still wanted the shirt after they were confronted with the horrific conditions in which it was produced- watch the video below to see what they chose!



It's time to shop with our conscience and demand brands to bear responsibility for the people and communities that their businesses depend on. Instead of a disposable $3.90 Forever 21 tee, I've rounded up 9 ethical alternatives to your classic white tee that is worth your investment.

From L-R:

1. Alternative Apparel Origin Cotton Modal T-Shirt ($38.00)
The Origin Tee is made in a WRAP-certified factory and crafted with Lenzing™, a sustainable cellulose fiber derived from beachwood pulp that’s twice as soft as conventional cotton.

2. Live the Give Slouchy Tee ($25.00)
Featuring a luxuriously soft poly-viscose fabric and manufactured in a WRAP-certified factory, $3 from every Slouchy Tee you purchase goes towards funding global education initiatives. (Use code NIHAO20 to get 20% off all orders through July.)

3. Everlane Cotton Box-Cut Pocket Tee ($16.00)
Known for their transparent pricing model, the Box-Cut Pocket Tee is made from the softest cotton and ethically produced in an LA garment factory.


4. PACT Scoop Neck Tee ($15.99 $13.59) 
The Scoop Neck Tee is a staple made from fair trade and GOTS-certified cotton and designed for everyday comfort, and it comes with a one-time size exchange with no questions asked.

Crafted from 100% Peruvian pima cotton and repeatedly washed to enhance the softness of the fabric, the Boyfriend Crew Neck tee offers luxury quality at an everyday price.

The classic Slub Tee is made from a soft organic cotton-modal blend, and a tree in North America is planted for every purchase made. 



7. Synergy Tissue Knit Boyfriend Tee ($44.00 $33.00)
Manufactured in India in accordance with fair labor practices, the Boyfriend Tee is made from 100% organic cotton and part of their proceeds go to non-profit groups that empower women and children.

8. Siizu U-Neck Tee ($45.00 $27.00)
The U-Neck Tee is made with Japanese tencel which is more absorbent than cotton and cooler than linen, and the fabric is responsibly sourced from a Chinese mill.

9. Threads 4 Thoughts Ezra Tee ($34.00 $20.40) 
A certified B-Corp, Threads 4 Thoughts is commited to social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency, and the Erza tee is made from a sustainable blend of organic cotton, recycled polyester and rayon.
