What makes Stay Vocal different than other t-shirt companies is that they print their designs on rescued t-shirts, giving them a second life, instead of on new t-shirts. Therefore, they are Green America certified as they are environmentally responsible. They have about eight different designs, and each month they hold a design contest. The winning design being available for preorder for a month with only shirts that have already been ordered being printed, keeping waste to a minimum. We think this is all fabulous and are glad to see a t-shirt company caring so much about the environment and not just the bottom line.
