Park Slope Food Coop T-shirts have returned! Our T-shirts are made by Organic Apparel (based in Denver) of certified organic, "homegrown" (in the U.S.) cotton, spun and manufactured in sweatshop-free facilities in the U.S. They are hand dyed for each order using a low impact, cold-wash dye-bath method. Colors may vary from dye lot to dye lot, as many factors figure into the dying process (i.e. what the city of Denver decides to put into their water each day, temperatures, etc.). The printing has been done by Denver Screen Print & Embroidery using a more environmentally friendly water-based printing method. You won't believe how soft and supple these T-shirts are! We have a variety of men's and women's cuts in small, medium, large, and extra large, and 2 different designs—the old Coop design slightly modified and a new design created by the Signage Committee—and a large selection of colors. The T-shirts don't seem to shrink in washing, but be forewarned that they do run small.

Plans are being formulated for a T-shirt design contest, likely to happen sometime in 2009. Stay tuned for details.
