Smile Often- Tees For Change -review

How often can you say that every time you purchase a t-shirt, a tree is planted?  I mean really... do you go into the store, thinking, oh great...I'm going to get that purple tee with the dog on it, and a tree will be planted.  

Well I'm sitting here, knowing that the t-shirt I'm wearing, is made by a company that does just that.  

I'm here at my laptop, in my blue 'smile often' t-shirt from Tees For Change, as I write this review.  My hands stop typing every few words to rub across the softness, the silkiness of the shirt.
Do you know what I'm thinking?  This is probably the smoothest t-shirt I've every felt!!  It's made with a mix of bamboo and organic cotton, that feels like clouds.  Really.

About Tees For Change:
Our Tees are made of sustainable and organic fabrics. The blend of bamboo and organic cotton we use creates a luxuriously soft tee. We use water based and environmentally friendly printing methods for our designs. Our shirts are produced in facilities that operate under fair trade and sweatshop free conditions to create better working environments for everyone involved. Several of our styles are Made in the USA. We design our tees with the thought of wearing them at the gym, yoga studio and out on the town!

I decided to give my smile often tee a REAL wear.  For me, that means, put it on in the morning, wear it all day, get on the computer before bed and do work on my site, then fall asleep in it watching a movie with my husband.
Not once did the back of my neck itch from a tag (there isn't one there).
Not once did it ride up my back.
Not once did...well, anything happen.  Not one single solitary problem or complaint.

I would suggest if have the *ahem* mommy body, (if you don't prefer shirts that hug) you purchase a size larger than your normal.   
Aside from that, this is one of the MOST comfortable tees that I've had the pleasure of wearing.

What DID happen in my nearly 24hr wearathon? (I did wake up and change...)
I went to pick up my son at school.  It was FREEZING outside (34deg) but I managed to unzip my coat(S!!!) to show off my shirt.  At least 3 other mom's that I noticed looking, read my shirt and smiled.  It works!  It makes you smile!!
Had my teeth not been chattering, I might have gotten out a blurb about it.  Darn teeth.
I did warm back up in the car enough to take off my coats, but showing it off there was pointless.  Darn tinted windows!
I really wanted to show off my Tees For Change shirt, to no avail.  I guess I'll have to try next week.
