Project Recycling aims to reduce landfill waste in the United States by recycling water bottles into T-Shirts. The shirt itself is made of three broken down water bottles. The ambitious project has produced a great design that not only looks great, but features some awesome environmental information on the front so you can sport some cool eco facts. With the '500,000,000,000 Pounds of Waste Each Year' emblem across the front, you can use your shirt to encourage others to take a step back and think about their garbage.

With only roughly 34 percent of garbage recycled every year in the United States, Project Recycling has taken it upon itself to lessen the load through the use of design. By buying the $29 shirt, you are making an investment in reducing waste and encouraging others to do the same. Stats for Environmentally Conscious Duds Trending: Older & Chilly
