Eco Friendly Tee Shirt

By:

This Eco-Friendly Tee Shirt, painted with a cute leaf, instructs people to "Think Green." The message is important but still friendly and is a great project to make for Earth Day.  Simple and fun, this is a great tee shirt project for a large group of people and is something you can wear any time of year to remind everyone to love the Earth!  Decorate the back for added style and fun or embellish the back of the tee shirt with your name if you're planning to get a team together to clean up your area.
