Old Shirt, New life....

I came across the below on BFG Blog, and couldn't resist sharing!! Such a great idea, and such a great cause!
Do you have old college sorority date function shirts, concert T's or maybe a shirt with sentimental value, that you wish could live forever? Well, the new company Hello Rewind, has a solution. Hello Rewind recycles old t-shirts and makes them into cozy laptop sleeves. You send them your old t-shirt; they send you back a custom laptop sleeve.

The best part is not just that Hello Rewind takes something old and makes something new, but they also work with Restore NYC to teach job skills to survivors of the sex trafficking trade, many of whom emerge with no marketable skills. In fact, many of the laptop sleeves made by Hello Rewind are hand-crafted by sex trafficking survivors.

Looks like it’s time to go through the t-shirt drawer.
