When I Grow Up: Earth Friendly Kids' Tees

Anyone who has ever taken a moment to reflect on the simplicities of childhood will appreciate this line of t-shirts from When I Grow Up. Inspired by the now infamous "Journeys" lecture by former Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch, the t-shirts are designed with a simple "I Will…" statement. We have the "plant a tree" style but others include, "walk in someone else’s shoes," "eat my vegetables," and the simple, "give." (A portion of the sales from this last tee go to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network).

The natural-colored tees — which are incredibly soft and wash really well — are made of 100% certified organic cotton and printed with a water-based ink. More designs are coming soon. I love putting this t-shirt on my daughter and talking about what it means with her. As the designer says, "…ask yourself, “What do I value most in my life, what do I want to teach my children?”  The rest is a no-brainer."

CBBDeal: FREE SHIPPING with purchase of five or more tees. (Only in the U.S.)
