WE ADD UP is a global campaign using organic cotton t-shirts that literally “counts you in” to help solve the climate crisis. Every shirt is printed by hand with a unique number. YOUR number is your position in our sequential global count of people who are taking steps to do their part. As the count grows, we demonstrate to the world that “WE ADD UP.” On the back of each shirt is a word or phrase that describes an action almost anyone can take to reduce their carbon footprint – the contribution their lifestyle makes to greenhouse gases – such as, Unplug, Lights Off, Carpool, Hybrid, Bike, Buy Local, and 27 others. You choose which action you are committed to doing and get counted in.
Here’s a picture of my family in our WE ADD UP tshirts. My mom has Local and an Organic, my dad has Shower Together, but our kids tees say: No one can do everything. Everyone can do something. And, WE ADD UP.
Their goal is to get millions of people around the world starting conversations on the streets. When you wear a We Add Up tee, you will notice complete strangers asking, “What does that number mean?” True change happens through education and it is our goal to give each of you a tool to be that educator and ambassador of change.
WE ADD UP also offers its products as a fundraiser for schools and non-profit groups. Groups receive 15% of all sales and are eligible for cash prizes. Contact them for more information. I think it is time to say goodbye to candles and wrapping paper.
