Portrait Make Parsons Shirtless

Over 2 billion t-shirts are sold each year. 700 gallons of water are used to make one t-shirt. More than 17 million tons of cotton was produced last year. 215 billion t-shirts could be produced with this cotton.

Cotton uses more chemical pesticides than any other crop. Americans throw away about 13 million tons of textiles each year.

Let’s disrupt this cycle. Come make your own Parsons t-shirt from a vintage one, repurposed and newly branded creatively by you.

We’ll use a zero VOC mineral based paint typically used as house paint to proudly print our school name.

Be a changemaker!
