Want to Help The Gulf? Wear the Oil

Overwhelmed by the multitude of oil spill images and news? You’re not alone. But that doesn’t mean you can stop paying attention. It’s only in building a sustained conversation that we’re going to start thinking about real alternatives, which includes lifestyle changes (think: kick your plastic habit), that will lead to positive change.

In the meantime, here’s a creative way that you can help the Gulf: buy a t-shirt printed with reclaimed oil from the spill. It’s no joke, Steve Brooker is using the oil from the environmental disaster and mixing it with ink to print T-shirts, as well as make necklaces, and giving a portion of proceeds to three different wildlife groups.

T-shirts from ihelpedcleanupthegulfoilspill.com are only $20, $5 of which goes to a non-profit of your choice: Tri-State Bird Rescue & Research, National Wildlife Federation or National Audobon Society.

Still not convinced? The website lays out the best reason for making a purchase.

You can buy t-shirts or cool necklaces anywhere,  I don’t think you can find any that contain the sludge of the Gulf.
