1. Monkey Bridge Tee by Andira Rain Tees

MonkeyBridge2The MONKEY BRIDGE tee shirt by Andira Rain Tees is one of my favorite gifts for kids, not to mention it makes for a great conversation piece.  Illustrated by 11-year old Winnie McCarthy of Costa Rica, this tee is available in size 18 months to 12 youth.   Winnie’s drawing is of the special bridges which were created to give endangered monkeys a way to cross roads to prevent them from being electrocuted by power lines or getting hit by cars, and in result have saved thousands of monkeys’ lives.

Suggested Retail Price: $32

About Andira Rain Tees: Saving Trees with Tees.

The Rain Tee Collection is a 100% organic eco-clothing line for women and children created with the wonderful drawings of kids living in endangered rain forests across Central and South America.

Andira donated school supplies to the children and asked them to illustrate what they see happening in their world every day. Each Rain Tee features their thoughts, illustrations, and names.

Rain Tees are handmade right outside the Amazon in Peru, using only 100% certified organic Peruvian cotton and eco friendly inks and dyes. Their factory workers are paid 25% above average wages.  Healthcare and childcare come first for them and their families, and they never feel forced to work in logging or for oil companies in order to provide for their families.

For every Rain Tee sold, a child living in an area of endangered rain forest receives a tree to plant and learns about how they can protect and sustain their homeland.
