9 slogan tees and tops that benefit charities around the world

Chic buys than empower others? Head right this way.

Shopping with a conscience is not a fad – it’s a movement. 

Whether you’re trying to buy less by investing in better quality pieces, or educating yourself on sustainability, we all have the power to make a positive impact when it comes to how we consume fashion. Which is what every T-shirt you’ll discover below does. Slogan tops and sweatshirts have replaced the plain white tee as an off-duty staple, but so many statements ring empty when, for example, an empowering mantra has been stitched together by someone trapped in unimaginable working conditions.

The tops below give back. They come from brands with a conscience, whose aim is to help others. And you can be part of that process by using your spending power wisely – without compromising your style.  

Only available for three weeks, 100% of proceeds of the tee marking the Spice Girls’ reunion will go Comic Relief’s Gender Justice initiative. That’s girl power right there.
