Don’t throw away that old shirt you have in your closet. It probably has a lot more to say than just another rag to dust off the coffee table with. A company called Re-Shirt allows for people to exchange, donate shirts that they have had.
“The Re-Shirt is different from its used compatriots in that it has a story to tell. It all starts with a T-shirt that someone associates with a special memory: an important career step, an unforgettable football match, a demonstration in Guatemala, the feeling of an entire stage in their life. These shirts are collected, quality inspected, and put on display at www.re-shirt.net. When one of these shirts is purchased, it is given its very own orange Re-Shirt Label, a number is printed on it, and it begins a new registered life. Every future owner can now document the experiences they have with their Re-Shirt online and continue the story of this piece of clothing.”
Now what about all those lost socks? Mine are vacationing somewhere in St. Marteen.
