we add up.





We mentioned them when they first launched their company, but we saw our green month as a perfect platform to remind you of the all brilliant We Add Up.


It's a global warming awareness project, standing as a COUNT of people committed to reducing their carbon footprint. It encourages people to make small {or even large} changes to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. WE ADD UP is an organic t-shirt campaign where each tee is custom printed with a number. Your number represents your position in the sequential global count!



In addition to a customized number, for every adult shirt, you can choose your action-- essentially stating how you will contribute. Maybe you'll go organic or drink tap, eat less meat or bike. With 25 doable options, there is sure to be something to suit anyone. And wearing your commitment is motivation enough to follow through.

We Add Up believes that "No one can do everything. Everyone can do something. And, WE ADD UP." In addition to the choose your action adult shirts, the "act now" kids tee allows the children to be counted in and spread the message. They understand that "leaving the problems created by current and past generations will cause irreparable damage to their ability to thrive. We can protect our earth and our children's futures..."

All tees are 100% certified organic cotton, grown, woven, and sewn in the USA using sweatshop-free labor. And the company does give back a portion of their proceeds to environmental groups that are working towards the same cause.

giveaway: We want all of you to feel like you can make a difference. In light of giving back, one reader will have a chance to win an Act Now Kid's tee with free shipping. Simply tell us your favorite We Add Up tee along with your comment. Act now. Make a change.

  2. My favorite is definitely the 'Buy Local' tee. My husband and I have always made it a priority to shop at farmer's markets and support local restaurants and stores. Sometimes we end up paying a little more, but it's worth it to us to support the efforts of those in our community. -Kristin R.

  3. I like the "Organic" tee - my husband and I eat mostly organic and feed our daughter homemade organic veggies and fruit.

  4. I love the idea behind this company. Sometimes it feels like there's so much to do that I don't make a difference, no matter how green I turn my family :) I like the "eat less meat" and "buy local", both healthy choices that also make a difference.

  7. I like the recycle tee. I don't understand how more people won't recycle since it is so easy to do. Thanks for sharing these tees with your readers.

    For a child, I really like the

  22. The shower together one is really cute and makes me giggle, but my most favorite is the bicycle one! Great for a cyclist like me! Would love to wear this to the upcoming Twilight Criterium bicycle event -- the other cyclists would be jealous!

  25. My husband will soon be getting a PhD in Mechanical Engineering. There a good chance he'll be working in the field of renewable energy. I'd love to win the Wind tee for our daughter.

  26. I love the Shower Together shirt... awesome! I also like the option for all emblems on one shirt. Great statements, hopefully we can inspire others to do a little something because we truly do Add Up.

  28. This is so cool. I love the theme "No one can do everything. Everyone can do something." There are so many little things we can do to make a difference - I think that's why the "all icons" tee is my favorite. I would love to win and spread a message my family believes in. - Shauntel

  29. I like the "Wind" tee and the "Buy Local" tee.

  30. These are great! I laugh with joy at the "Shower Together" tee but I think I'd wear "Drink Tap" more often because it would have a more serious impact on folks on the street.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like the Act Now shirt. Thanks for the chance.

  38. I love the "buy local" T, as we have been making a concerted effort by joining a local CSA and paying attention to the products we buy, although they are all great. What a great way to start another discussion with the kids about what we can do and to remind ourselves of our commitment!

  50. I think I like the Lights Off one the best. People always laugh at me because I use so little light in the house at night but I don't need it. I can see well enough to get around and do anything I need to. It's a simple thing to save energy that way.
