"The story of the Edun shirt starts with cotton grown and processed in Africa. The fabric then goes to a factory in Lesotho, where people working in fair labor conditions produce some of the best t-shirts in the world. Socially conscious production like this is just what the people of Lesotho need to work their way out of poverty and help jumpstart their country's economy.

But buying the Edun shirt doesn't just help provide jobs to these cotton farmers and factory workers. $10 of every purchase goes to ALAFA (Apparel Lesotho Alliance to Fight AIDS), which provides life-saving AIDS treatment to factory workers and their family members. The remainder of the profits go to ONE and help us, among other things, to advocate for programs like ALAFA." buy a shirt today
