At Eco News Network, three of our favorite things are eco-friendly products, fashion and kids! Well, Rain Tees combines all of the above by offering women and children a 100 percent organic luxury line of apparel designed by youth living in endangered rain forests across Central and South America.
When donating school supplies to children in Central and South America, Rain Tees founder Beth Doane asked them to illustrate what they saw happening in their world every day. As a result, each Rain Tee features their thoughts, names and illustrations.
Rain Tees have graced the runways of Mercedes Benz Fashion week and have been featured in national magazines including People, E–The Environmental Magazine, InStyle and countless eco-conscious Web sites and blogs like ours.
The best part? For every Rain Tee sold a child involved in Kids Saving the Rain Forest, Costa Rica receives a tree they can plant to replace one that has been destroyed, aiding Doane in accomplishing her goal of creating global change by educating consumers on critical issues using industries such as fashion and collections like Rain Tees.
