Eco-Friendly Tees that Inspire & Give Back

Palabra

During a time of constant online communication and social media popularity, we can get totally caught up in consumerism and other peoples’ lives. We purchase without thought, we harp on ourselves for not being good enough, we don’t speak out when we should in fear of what others might say… you get the point… that’s why when I saw Palabra’s graphics, I felt a lot of positivity and truth behind them. 

Three Reasons to Love Palabra

Tees & Totes Made from Eco Fabrics: These aren’t your average tees. They are soft with a great drape, AND they tread lightly on the planet. Made with a blend of organic cotton and recycled polyester, you’ll look good and feel good when wearing them! 
Cool Inspirational Graphics: I’ve always found statement tees to be a great conversation starter. It’s also a wonderful way to communicate a positive or important message. Bold words like ‘Courage’, ‘Self Love’, ‘Journey Wisely’ & ‘Educa Tu Ojo {Educate Your Eye}’ are hard to forget. Not to mention, it’s fun to see two languages used to speak to even more people. 
Each Purchase Gives a Book: Did you know one of the best ways to improve reading achievement of low-income children is to increase their access to print? Makes great sense, right? Palabra wanted to do more than offer eco-minded individuals cool tees, they wanted to give back to communities and causes they cared about. Therefore, for every item purchased, a book will be donated to the Chispa Project - a global education and literacy organization. This project has three missions: (1) sparking a culture of reading through student access to books (2) supporting educators to engage creatively (3) facilitating intercultural exchange through service. 

What I’m Wearing

Self Love T-shirt: I’ve really enjoyed seeing the use of #selflove on social media lately. Women can be so hard on themselves, especially when we constantly compare ourselves to others. It’s hard to not do - I’m guilty of it myself. I can get lost in someone’s instagram and instantly start to feel like my life is lacking something or my ‘look’ isn’t good enough. It’s a terrible feeling, but I don’t feel this way when I’m not on social media so why when I’m online?! I have to get back to reality and remind myself that I’m plenty! I have a lot of self love - just sometimes it hides for a bit. This tee is a good reminder for me, and I hope it speaks to you, too! Plus, it’s made from 50% organic cotton and 50% RPET recycled polyester which is very soft blend. 

El Silencio Habla = The Silence Speaks Market Bag: This statement may mean something different for everyone, but lately, I've been thinking about how our silence affects others. I find it to be rather powerful in the sense if we don't speak up for others, we add to the problem. While I understand it’s almost impossible to speak up every time because there is constant oppression all over the world, I do think it’s important for each of us to find a cause we constantly support and share. When something bothers us, we need to acknowledge the issue and communicate our concerns —- otherwise, our silence will do the speaking & allow the problem to continue. This sturdy tote is made from 100% organic cotton and has a convenient pocket for your phone and wallet. Since I’ve joined the mommy club recently, it’s worked great to hold blankets and a change of clothes when we are on-the-go.
