"...in some ways, I'm like an old woman-lived it, seen it, done it, been there, have the T-shirt.” - Drew Barrymore

Did you know that 'on average, 20,000 liters of water are needed to produce 1 kilogram of raw cotton'? Or that 'approximately 10% of the pesticides produced world-wide are used in cotton growing'? No, neither did I...until I visited Re-shirts' website.

Re-shirts is an Austrian-based company with an interesting idea...to give second-hands t-shirts a second home. The t-shirts are listed on the site, along with a story about the shirt from its previous owner...when a shirt is purchased it is given an orange Re-shirt numbered label and new owners can update the site with stories of the shirt's newest experiences. It's a unique mix of conservation, community, and art installation...
