I found you through the RecycleBank program in Delaware.

I’d love to see my logo, or my mantra, on your eco-friendly shirts.

The mantra of my site is “Don’t Give Up! Giggle On!”

I’d definitely buy a “Giggle On!” shirt from you AND add a link to your site!

We should talk!

We love your product!
-We would love to see more color options per phrase, we love the deep rich colors. The royal blue and the purple are great.
-We love the phrases you have… have you considered putting other languages on the tees? We speak French and would love to see some with French on them!
-Yes, we would love to see a long sleeve unisex tee! My husband is jealous of mine.
-More tee styles 🙂 -Something about Obama?

Janet, on December 15th, 2008 at 11:42 am Said:
I’d like to see a red t-shirt. (not too bright, more of a deep red). Messages that remind of us of nature such as: Enjoy nature, Go outside.

Have you reached out to Greenward in Cambridge, MA to sell your shirts?

Good luck,
Janet

Justine, on January 5th, 2009 at 1:24 am Said:
I found your tees yesterday and fell in love with them. I would like to see toddler tees in different colors (not white) since toddlers are usually messy. For phrase, I would like see “carpediem”, “live joyfully” in adult tees.

Holly Cottingham, on January 6th, 2009 at 4:55 pm Said:
Hello there, such wonderful products you offer. I love that you have a range of different textiles to choose from. I think having more phrases would be awesome and then secondly more colours. I would love a shirt that said “Smile, it’s free”. A turquoise T would also be really great!

I also second the notion of being able to customise the T with my company logo for example. I would really love a shirt that had one of your simple messages on the front and then my logo on the back.

Congrats on offering such a beautiful range of products. I am sure that whatever is chosen, your new collection will be amazing!

Cathe, on January 20th, 2009 at 11:05 pm Said:
As you know — I love, love your shirts. I would love to see BOTH (can’t get enough of them!) with more deep colors (love the back short with white type) and in long-sleeve. Secondly, I would love to see more a wider range of phrases.

Keep up the good work!

Nicole, on January 24th, 2009 at 12:46 pm Said:
I love the infant bodysuits. I would like to see more variety of styles in those that could be for both boys or girls.

I would love to own the “grow strong” bodysuit in 12months.

Annis, on January 30th, 2009 at 12:56 am Said:
I’d like to see more dark colors with unique designs! Yes, more phrases it would be nice, especially funny phrases.

Tara, on January 30th, 2009 at 9:38 am Said:
I’d like to see some tees specifically designed for yoga.
I’d like to see more tee styles before anything else.

Lauren Alleman, on January 30th, 2009 at 9:38 am Said:
I would love to be able to customize a shirt – it would be cool to choose the color and the phrases, so you could mix and match what you like. There was a phrase I liked, but didn’t like the color, so I chose one with the color I wanted instead.

Trudy, on January 30th, 2009 at 9:39 am Said:
I would love to see more deep, rich colours, as well as a yellow. In terms of style, I would like to see a 3/4 sleeve tee.
More phrases available in each colour and style.

Melinda S., on January 30th, 2009 at 9:49 am Said:
Something I would love to see…..are larger sizes….I wear a Womens XL.
And something for kids/toddlers…..as they need to make good statements at school!!!
Thanks!

Jill, on January 30th, 2009 at 9:54 am Said:
I love the simple messages on the shirts. As a yoga teacher it would be nice to see a shirt design with a built in bra, so it can be worn in a class. Mix and match the colors/phrases would be great as well.

Theresa, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:08 am Said:
I would also like to see the ability to choose the phrase and color of the shirt!! I love your products, but I am disappointed sometimes when I find a phrase I love and can’t get it in the color I would love!! that would be the biggest help to me!!

More deep rich colors. I like tees for women that are more fitted and not just “boxy”.

Anne Lobdell, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:14 am Said:
I love the feel and longer lenghth of your tees. More jewel tones like red, colbalt and emerald would be nice. Also, I would like to see more emotional slogans such as ” Be Kind” and ‘Love More” or “Be Love.” Many blessings, Anne

Tammy Cupit, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:15 am Said:
Would you like to see more color tees and, if so, which ones? I think your colors selection is great

Would you like to see more phrases and, if so, which ones? How about humanity quotes from philosophers? The earlier comment about an ability to request a phrase would be great too.

Would you like to see more tee styles and, if so, which ones? I am okay with your selection although I do like tanks.

If you had to choose between the following, which would be most important to you – more colors, more tee styles, more phrases? More phrases first, styles second, colors last

Michelle, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:18 am Said:
I love my tee for change and always get lots of compliments/comments when I wear it.
I would love a tee in a cotton/spandex blend with a longer torso. Also, my tee is an XL and I typically wear mediums. I like fitted tees, but not such a tiny fit.

Chris Bennor, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:21 am Said:
I want more styles. I wear 3/4 length sleeves, v-neck t-shirts. If you offered your shirts in this style, I’d be there! And definitely make sure you have a variety of sizes, including plus sizes.

Jolie Hamilton, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:33 am Said:
I’d love to see some “baseball” type shirts with 3/4 length sleeves in various shades of green. I’d like them to have some funny nature sayings, for example:
“Make Like a Tree and Leaf (Leave)”.

Irene, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:37 am Said:
I love the green color and the bamboo t’s, black and grey would also be nice neutral colors.
Choose happiness is my favorite phrase
I think environmental phrase would be great and I love the ‘go outside’ suggestion or something of that nature.
I also like ‘be the change’

Patricia Hill, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:40 am Said:
I would like Tees in rich, deep colors-such as: Royal Purple, Royal Blue, Black, Bright Red and Yellow.

Valerie Hale, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:41 am Said:
I would like v-necks. I also prefer bright vibrant colors. Cool graphics(I am a scrapbooker) or some funky/fun design would be cool. Also a longer tee to cover the bumps in workout pants would be great.

Nora, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:42 am Said:
The styles, colors, and phrases are all wonderful!! I would like to see a variety of colors and styles for all of the sayings. I often really like a phrase, but the color and/or style I would like are not available.

Rachael, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:42 am Said:
Just seeing the Colours avaliable through all the different styles would be great.
More colours would be more important to me.

– Dance Forever
– Be Change
– Open Your Mind

I prefer the Tank and the raglan sleeves

Keep doing what you are doing.
The shirt material is beautiful. the colours are so vivid.
The phrases are wonderful

Jessie C, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:42 am Said:
In ‘09, I would love to see the option of being able to choose a phrase and a color of your tee. Customization of my own tee would make me more eager to buy one.

I purchased a tank a few months ago, and I wish it was a few inches longer. I know myself and my friends prefer longer tanks and tees these days.

I love bright colours, so I’d love to see more of those. Green, purple, red, orange… white is always a nice option too because it’s fresh and peaceful.

I love all the phrases you have. Would it be possible to enlarge the print of some of the phrases? The print on my tank (”chase dreams”) is rather small. Maybe if you had two options for small and large print, that would be better too?

Instead of round necks, v-necks would definitely be prefered, especially for the long-sleeve and raglan styles.

I love the phrases you have so far, they’re short, simple and powerful. So what i’d love to see more are more colours and styles. I’d also love some more sales because I live in Canada and the cost to buy and ship a tee is rather big. Thanks!

Jenny, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:45 am Said:
More choices for men!! And v-neck or boat-neck t-shirts.

Carol, on January 30th, 2009 at 10:52 am Said:
V neck tees.

Christy, on January 30th, 2009 at 11:05 am Said:
I like the simplicity of the words you already have, … very powerful messages. Perhaps make for more particular sports types – baseball/sleeved, yoga, etc.

Allyson, on January 30th, 2009 at 11:08 am Said:
I would love some darker colors , or maybe some contrasting shirt and font colors. Navy blue and light blue, perhaps? Something like that. Also, I would love new phrases too.
I wish I could think of some cool ones to suggest, but my mind is blank at the moment.

Elaine, on January 30th, 2009 at 11:28 am Said:
I would love to see a yellow tee- like sunshine yellow or pale yellow. Other than that, I think the deep colors are so beautiful.

I would love to see v-necks both in tees and long-sleeved. A longer-tank would be ideal.

I really like the phrases you currently have. But I would love to be able to pick the phrase, color and style. Not have phrases specific to color and style.

I love your stuff!

Curtis, on January 30th, 2009 at 11:42 am Said:
– Would you like to see more color tees and, if so, which ones?
I like the colors you have, but would like to see more phrase/color combination choices.
– Would you like to see more phrases and, if so, which ones?
I would like to see more phrases.
– Would you like to see more tee styles and, if so, which ones?
More unisex, men’s crew neck, men’s v-neck.
– If you had to choose between the following, which would be most important to you – more colors, more tee styles, more phrases?
More phrases… If I had to pick from only those 3. Otherwise, I would say more combinations of colors/styles/phrases.
– Anything else you’d like to see in our Spring 2009 collection?
More unisex phrases! Especially “Practice Kindness”.
– Any comments, feedback, etc.
One of the ONLY 3 unisex phrases only comes in pink currently. No, I don’t think there is anything wrong with men wearing pink, but I’m just not that bold. This limits my selection to 2 choices.

Shirley, on January 30th, 2009 at 11:56 am Said:
I would like to see brighter colors in the Woman’s styles especially with Spring and Summer coming.

Curtis, on January 30th, 2009 at 12:06 pm Said:
Oops, forgot t mention which phrases I’d like to see:

“Enjoy Your Present” (with perhaps a graphic of a gift)
“Discuss Ideas”
“Dance Freely”
“Speak Blessings ”
“Laugh Uncontrollably”

I would also really like to see “Choose Happiness” as a unisex tee.

Kim, on January 30th, 2009 at 12:07 pm Said:
This has already been mentioned, but the one thing I’d really like is V-neck tees, they’re my favorite.

John Fry, on January 30th, 2009 at 12:35 pm Said:
Dark and Sky Blue, pocket, simple symbol. Thank-you Blues are great, pocket useful and symbol requires a second look.

Maryanne Paul, on January 30th, 2009 at 1:27 pm Said:
I love my Tees for change shirts that I have!
I would love to see all colours available for all sayings.
The same for all lenght of sleeves with all colours and all sayings.
I love “may all beings be happy”

Thanks for this great product! Glad you sent me this note….I just found another I like!

Betsy, on January 30th, 2009 at 1:35 pm Said:
I would love to see some t-shirts in pale yellow and baby blue

As far as sayings, I can’t think of any right now

Lisa Hourmouzis, on January 30th, 2009 at 2:06 pm Said:
Hola Tees for Change,

I just received my first Tees for Change tee, and I love it. It feels so awesome and the message is beautiful: Choose Happiness. It’s also great knowing trees are planted with each purchase.

As far as suggestions/ideas, I’d love to see more earth tones. I love the browns and greens, deep reds and oranges. They’re always lovely. I’d also lke to see a light-weight hoodie with your positive messages on it, and possibly yoga tops and pants with simple messages on them.

I also agree with those who would like more color options available with a certain message on it.

It would be cool to see environmental designs like a beautiful tree or bird. Messages about preserving nature, going organic, living simply, growing your own veggies, plant a tree; or having a nature “symbol” like a tree or bird on a sleeve or somewhere on the tee.

I like the idea of customers being able to customize their own shirt, but I’m sure that would be a costly endeavor for you, but it is a great idea.

Thanks for your company and helping our planet one shirt at a time.

Lisa

Shizuko Winner, on January 30th, 2009 at 2:12 pm Said:
I love your tees, they are unique and inspiring! I would love to see a tee with a “shaka sign” and “Live Aloha” on it. I am from Hawaii and shaka means, take it easy-hang loose-how’s it going, etc. President Obama gave the Punahou marching band a shaka as did Michelle, Malia & Sasha. People thought he was telling them to call him because it’s just like the hand gesture to call, thumb and pinky extended and the 3 middle fingers folded.

Kristi Friesen, on January 30th, 2009 at 2:30 pm Said:
I love the fabrics that the tees are made out of, wouldn’t want to change anything about that! What I would like the most is to have v-neck tees since that’s my favorite type to wear. I also would love to be able to choose a saying, then pick a colour.

Emily Harvey, on January 30th, 2009 at 2:36 pm Said:
I am absolutely addicted to your Raglan Tee. I would love to have a bamboo long sleeve w/ boat neck! That would be a dream come true:)
A deeper red would be great and I would also love to see “Just Be”…
Thanks again for the great work you do!
-Emily

Angela Bozic, on January 30th, 2009 at 3:11 pm Said:
I love your products. The organic fabric is so soft and looks great on. I would like to see darker colors as well as brighter colors. A whole rainbow. I like the phrases you have but would also like to see “Carpe Diem” and “Live Green”. Thanks you making a difference!

Laura Lambert, on January 30th, 2009 at 3:20 pm Said:
I love the soft bamboo… I too would like to see more colors per phrase. I also enjoy new phrases each season or the contests to choose the phrases.

Carol adams, on January 30th, 2009 at 3:46 pm Said:
I think the shirts should be available in a variety of colors. I think I would prefer an option of “Live Mindfully” in grey or brown instead of blue.

Thanks!

Carol

AK White, on January 30th, 2009 at 3:46 pm Said:
-Love the earthy colors
-enjoy all the phrases, would like to see all phrases available on all styles & in colors; esp like “live fully”; perhaps another earth-friendly phrase
-like the raglan, fitted tess
-style is most important, then phrase, then color
-liked some of the necklaces your used to have that I no longer see.

Aisling, on January 30th, 2009 at 4:55 pm Said:
Your shirts and philosophy are excellent. I’d like to be able to pick the phrase and then choose the style and color. I’d like to see more phrases added as well.

DeeAnn S, on January 30th, 2009 at 5:20 pm Said:
Love wearing tees. I’d like to see more shirts with 3/4 length sleeves. Also maybe a V neck too.

Tim, on January 30th, 2009 at 5:45 pm Said:
More shirts in brown and green! Thanks.

Donna C, on January 30th, 2009 at 6:11 pm Said:
love these. would like to see plus sizes.

Kristen Hendricks, on January 30th, 2009 at 7:29 pm Said:
I absolutely love your tees. But I would like to see more tees in pink and would love it if you could have the messages on tees made out of rhinestones. If the messages on the tees were made out of rhinestones that would be so cool. I also wish you could have larger sizes for the tees.

Rachel H., on January 30th, 2009 at 9:25 pm Said:
Hi. I love your shirts. I would like to seee more earthy colors, greens, browns, blues, and red-oranges. I would also like if you could choose phrases on all types of tees and colors and I love tees that are longer than “normal” tees. I have a long torso.

Thank you!

Joan T., on January 30th, 2009 at 9:48 pm Said:
My teenage daughters and I love your t-shirts!! Great sayings! Would love to see some larger sizes. I would love to see more phrases,too. I wear the t-shirts while jogging. People I pass really enjoy reading them! Inspirational! Also, what about some phrases on the back. I need to inspire those who are even slower than me!!
Thanks!

Lin Sunseri, on January 31st, 2009 at 12:10 am Said:
I think your tees are beautiful, but they’re not made for my ’size elephant’ body! I often end up wearing mens tees because of the full body on them. So .. I’d like to see tees that come in XXL and are not fitted. I also love bright colors so they would be welcome.

Kiki, on January 31st, 2009 at 2:48 am Said:
I would love to see a long-sleeve raglan tee in the bamboo fabric – and perhaps a note on the site that the bamboo fabric stretches a bit during a day’s wear, but comes back in the next wash!

Lori M, on January 31st, 2009 at 3:40 am Said:
I love my new tee. I bought the “practice kindness” one…I am actually wearing it right now. I love the fit as well.

Lori M, on January 31st, 2009 at 3:44 am Said:
I forgot to mention that I would like to see some tees a little longer in the torso. I would also like to see phrases for yoga practice and mind, body, spirit ones and possibly TGIT (Thank God It’s Today). I like a good old white tshirt…goes with anything.

Ricki, on January 31st, 2009 at 7:26 am Said:
I would love to see some long-sleeve hoodies (T-shirts with hoods, not sweatshirts).

Monika Soine, on January 31st, 2009 at 9:04 am Said:
Hi There; I love love love your t-shirts! I have a few two word quotes to enter in HOPES to possible win a t-shirt!

Just Exhale
Love Globally
Live Differently
Be Present
To Love
The Journey
The Quest

Kari Ortiz, on January 31st, 2009 at 12:25 pm Said:
I’d love to see a shirt that says “Cherish Freedom” or “Remember Yesterday” on it. I like the new diversity of women’s colors.

Elinor, on January 31st, 2009 at 12:39 pm Said:
Your t-shirts are so amazing. I would like to see more pink t-shirts.

Monica, on January 31st, 2009 at 10:43 pm Said:
Hi!
I love your shirts and would love to see a “maternity” line with some great phrases that reflect the beauty of motherhood.

Deep colors would be great like red and more style options for the bamboo shirts since they are sooooo soft.

Love your onesies too, but with there was more selection of phrases and colors. Phrases: Perhaps the simple truths that children teach us?Sleepers would be cool??

Thanks for letting us share!

Ruth, on February 1st, 2009 at 5:14 am Said:
I LOVE your tees and wear them often. I’d love to see more “Live Mindfully” tees available in a wider range of colors.

We don’t need more titles, just the ones you have in a wider variety of colors, especially black!

Thanks for the chance to comment!

Storm, on February 1st, 2009 at 2:18 pm Said:
I always love more colors for varieties. I’d prefer less sayings on shirts, so it matches more outfits.

Glynis, on February 1st, 2009 at 9:52 pm Said:
I would like to see more dark colors, purple,black,dark blues,& etc.Plus would love more discounts on shirts.
