Cool Social Entreprise: Teecycle.org

Found this social venture via twitter (twitter.com/teecyle_tim) while playing around the other day. TeeCycle.org is a site thatpicture-60 sells used t-shirts under the motto of “reduce. reuse. teecycle.”

Funds from each sale to go various charities and they help achieve their goal of reducing landfill waste. They offer a pretty cool quote from Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, “The most responsible way for a consumer and a good citizen to buy clothes is to buy used.”

Check out teecycle.org — maybe buy a cool, pre-loved shirt.

Not sure if the team at Teecyle is looking to scale up or not, but the opportunity for recycled goods is enormous, especially in a slowing economy.

  1. Hey, thanks a lot for the write-up. Teecycle was just a hobby that’s really taken off. I definitely have some big ideas for 2009. We’ll see where it goes.
