'Liberty & Justice' is producing a new line of fair trade tees that help provide school uniforms for Liberian children. The Liberian economy has taken a dramatic hit in the past year due to the impact of the Ebola outbreak. Liberty & Justice has devised a way to help the citizens of Liberia through the sale of its ultra-soft fair trade tees.

The new 'UNIFORM' tees are produced according to a one-for-one model. This means that for every shirt purchased, the company will buy a school uniform for a Liberian child. Unlike other companies practicing the one-for-one model, Liberty & Justice produces the new uniforms in same Liberian factory that also makes its shirts. This fair-trade factory helps to produce new clothes while employing local Liberians at the same time.

Not only do these shirts contribute to a good cause, they are also a high-quality product. The fair trade tees are made from a unique combination of Lyocell, nylon and silk, which makes them one of the softest shirts available to consumers.
