Your Presbyterian source for sweatshop-free T-shirts

Sweat-Free Ts logoAltogether, we Presbyterians print a lot of T-shirts. Unfortunately, almost all of the apparel readily available to us in stores was produced in sweatshops. The good news is that sweatshop-free shirts are available from the PC(USA), ready to print with your group’s logo or design. Whether you’re creating shirts for your youth group, upcoming mission trip, presbytery summer camp, congregational celebration or special event, put your faith in practice by choosing Sweat-Free Ts!

The Sweat-Free Ts are produced by a women’s sewing cooperative in Nicaragua. Together the members own and operate the cooperative as a small business, thanks in part to support from the One Great Hour of Sharing. They even built their building with their own hands! Learn more about the women by reading their story.

Advocates in many places are encouraging manufacturers to produce goods in ways that respect the dignity, safety and rights of workers. There are many ways concerned Presbyterians can support our sisters and brothers in Christ who work hard on the production end of the garment chain.

  • I am trying--once again--to find something on a PC(USA) webswite. And--AGAIN--I cannot figure out how to find what was so easily found on the previous website. I am interested in obtaining brochures about Equal Exchange, Partners for Fair Trade and Sweat-Free Ts.
