Teecycle.org was founded in 2008 by Tim and Jess Cigelske in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their mission is to reclaim cool vintage t-shirts to make the best use of the planet's resources. Teecycle shirts are one-of-a-kind "pre-loved" t-shirts that are hand-selected from rummage sales, thrift stores, or were donated by friends. It is a simple and sustainable solution that is kind to our environment, and if you don't have the time to comb the local thrift store to find great t-shirts let Tim and Jess do it for you. (You can even get a t-shirt sent to you each month by subscription!) I really like the fact that $1 of each sale is donated to the River Revitalization Foundation to help restore urban river trails and waterways in the Milwaukee area. That means that each purchase makes a direct impact toward improving the health of our planet and making an urban environment more livable for residents.
You can find shirts for women, men, kids, and even your best friend on Teecycle.org:
My husband selected one of the Milwaukee tees to give it a test run and, well, I picked up the mail first and borrowed it (permanently) from him. I happy to tell you that our t-shirt is soft, comfortable, and in great condition.
That brings me to this month's giveaway! Tim and Jess have kindly offered a t-shirt of your choice for the winner of the Father's Day giveaway. Help your dad, hubby, or boyfriend "Reduce. Reuse. Teecycle." for Father's Day, as the t-shirt can be sent directly to him. You also have the option of selecting a t-shirt for yourself!

Teecycle.org provided me with a t-shirt so I could share my honest opinion with you. I received no monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
