T-Shirt Summary


T-Shirt: One small item, one giant impact by Troth Wells

Can't imagine the world without them? Everyone wears T-shirts - old/young, black/white, women/men, cool/uncool...First T-shirts (called that for their shape) came from US and after WWII were worn without a shirt; became popularized by Marlon Brando and James Dean on TV and shocked some people. But by 1955, it had become acceptable. Today, they are the ultimate apparel: branding, colours, easy gifts, easycare, fashion statement...you can decide what suits you. But too many are produced by sweatshop labour, from cotton doused with pesticides that kills people and the environment. Now, the trade justice movement seeks fair trade for cotton producers - a new slogan for today's T-shirt."One Small Item, One Giant Impact" - the "Trigger Issue" series exposes everyday objects in a new light. Short, sharp, and provocative - themes are taken from the award-winning "New Internationalist" magazine - 40,000 UK subsribers. It includes unusual, hard to find facts and figures. The previously published titles in this series include - "Diamonds", "Kalashnikov", and "Mosquito".
