Okay, I know it's just a silly thing but I'm looking for an interesting vegan tee shirt. What do you have, or know about? Pics? Links?

I've seen a few really cute ones for girls but fewer for guys. I did find a protein shirt with a gorilla and a herbivore shirt with a rhino but that's about it, so far.

So, bring it. What 'cha got?

Nice! I'm not sure I'm worthy to wear either of those. As an old, soft, retired guy, there's definitely nothing badass about me. wink3.gif No ultra-marathoning either. But they are cool shirts. Appreciate the links.

All animals should be respected & should have the ability to lead a natural & enjoyable life. This means not eating them, or abusing them in any way.

This is my favourite that I own, also all profits go to animals. The quote on the front is 'Vegan, because I listen to my heart, not my stomach'.

Just out of curiosity, are most vegetarians and vegans interested to wearing shirts that express their lifestyle? Do people can whether the material is recycled etc?

Many of the shirts I've seen are priced rather high, one could easily supply these in a retail range of $12~$15 and have thought about it but not sure about the demand and characteristics of the demand.

I do not wear message shirts or put bumper stickers on my car because I think they contribute in unhelpful ways to a sound byte culture. I do, however, care very much where my clothing comes from and how it is made. Nothing I wear ideally will have resulted in anyone's exploitation or death. I'm realistic about the present system to realize that is not the case for every garment in my closet. Until I have the money to support the responsible companies, I remove myself a step by buying second hand and doing free swaps with friends.

I do the same in regards to buying clothes and other items second hand where I can or else spending a little extra for clothes (or shoes) that are made ethically and fair trade.  It isn't always possible given my budget and resources but I try where I can.  I realize the very culture I live in makes it nearly impossible to not indirectly participate in exploitation of some kind.  

 

I also will not put vegan bumper stickers on my car due to fear of vandalism and harassment (while driving) because of anti vegan sentiment (which is ridiculous but you would be amazed at how heated and angry people get over it up here).  But I do wear vegan T shirts with a message and I do feel that it makes a difference.  I have had great conversations with others about what being vegan means by wearing my shirts to the gym, library, schools etc.  One guy at the fitness center is slowly moving more toward plant based eating from our conversations started because of my t shirt (the one in my user pic which by the way uses organic and fair trade cotton:http://www.nonviolenceunited.org/veganshirt.html ).   I don't generally get harassed in this regard because most of the people that would take the time to harass me while driving or vandalize my car are too cowardly to confront me face to face and actually talk about it in a civilized manner.  I have been challenged by those with a genuine interest but different viewpoint face to face but so far not in a harassing manner but more civilized and usually because I am doing something like leafleting in addition to wearing the t shirt.  There are still so many people that have no idea what vegan means beyond not eating meat and dairy.


In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

So interested! I also notice they're pricey but am willing to pay for the message. However, compassionate cook is the only site I've found that I like the designs of.. A bit more sophisticated (the cow and pig designs) plus they're quality shirts versus a standard I'll-fitting cotton T shirt.
