I've long been a big fan of Threadless shirts. The creative images and phrases always spark interesting conversations, especially when meeting strangers while traveling. Now they have a new "Gulf Coast relief tee" called "peliCAN" and are:
donating all proceeds from the sale of this tee to the Gulf Restoration Network, a 15 year old environmental non-profit organization committed to uniting and empowering people to protect and restore the natural resources of the Gulf Region for future generations. They're the only environmental organization working Gulf-wide, and since the first days of BP's oil drilling disaster, they've provided independent monitoring and advocacy focused on holding BP accountable and ensuring an effective and transparent response to the crisis. Take action, stay informed, and donate to these efforts here.
It's great to see a company get involved in local efforts to restore the Gulf. I'm not sure how I feel about the graphic, but it definitely succeeds in capturing the symbol of the oil spill. What do you think? You can read more about peliCAN here and visit the Gulf Restoration Network for other ways to help.
