CafePress Organic Tee Review and Giveaway


April is Earth Month, and since it's just a blink of an eye away, it's time to start thinking of ways we can reduce our carbon footprint and be kinder to the earth. One easy change we can make to our lifestyles is to buy more organic clothing. With more and more clothing companies offering organic options, finding cute, affordable organic clothing is easier than ever.

Case in point: CafePress, the popular online site for user-designed products, offers many of their designs in organic material. I was so excited to be invited by CafePress to select and review a pair of American Apparel organic tees for myself and The Pea -- and even more excited to have them sponsor a giveaway on Bonggamom Finds for a second pair! To find out how to enter, keep reading....


The Basics
Cafe Press is the place for personalized items. You can find millions of personalized gifts at CafePress – for any topic, interest, or brand! They offer a multitude of products (mugs, bumper stickers, bags, hats, umbrellas, baby onesies, hoodies, shirts, and more), styles, colors, sizes and designs. Their American Apparel line of organic tees has so many styles and designs to choose from -- and if you can't find a design you want, you can upload your own.


The Bongga
The Pea and I had lots of fun browsing around the Cafe Press website looking for tshirt designs! The Pea took less than 5 minutes to chose a Peace, Love, Dance design on a pink spaghetti top (I'm sure all her ballet classmates will be envious). I took a bit longer to choose -- okay, waaay longer; hey, there are so many great designs! -- but in the end I got a Peace, Love, Recycle design on a cream organic tee. Whoever designed the swirly green logo is a genius, and I will wear this shirt throughout Earth Month with pride. We're both ecstatic with our choice, and each of us is convinced that we ended up with the better design.


I'm really impressed by how quickly our order was processed and shipped -- and I don't think this is a fluke, either, given the lightning-fast turnaround time I experienced when I ordered a CafePress holiday ornament last December. The shirts turned out even better than I had hoped -- the printing is high-quality, with no faded or blurry designs -- and the tshirt cotton (mine especially), is nice and soft.


The Blah
I found the neckline of the women's organic tee a wee bit too high. And I was a bit disappointed that I wasn't able to get The Pea's spaghetti-strap tee in an organic material -- or maybe I couldn't figure out how to get it in organic. I wish CafePress would provide organic options for each and every one of the cute shirts they sell!


The Bottom Line
Whether you buy one for yourself or as a present, American Apparel organic shirts by CafePress make a unique, personalized, eco-friendly statement. With so many styles and designs to choose from, you're sure to find something you like -- and if you can't, you can create your own!
