If you have buying power, style yourself up by supporting Forgotten Shirts. Established in 2009, Forgotten Shirts supplies fair trade t-shirts, which in turn helps the people of Uganda and Congo to find meaningful work. Each t-shirt sold enables 74 minutes of work to three people: cotton farmers, textile workers and a screen printer. This method alleviates people from poverty and helps to pull them out of a futile cycle.

Forgotten Shirts offers a comfortable and relaxed wear with many different styles and colors for both men and women. Shirt production is made in Uganda from organic fair trade cotton. For events and organizations that use a lot of t-shirts, try Forgotten Shirts’ custom-made option for those looking for products in bulk.

This method by Forgotten Shirts hones in on the lives of people in need, offering them support and a chance to earn decent wages. On their website, Forgotten Shirts stands by its cause and says: “Our products are unique. Our work transformational. And our invitation simple. Support the cause of the forgotten, both near and far, by joining a movement of conscious consumers who purchase our products and stand up for those who are often unable to stand up for themselves.”
